From the same scarf that produced the Darlene bag, Cora is made from the reverse (golden side) with a deep plum lining and brass clasp. It has a real vintage feel to it. Slightly smaller and with a longer chain it's ideal for parties!

Bella (laptop cover)

Needing a laptop cover made me realise the lack of attractive bags that are available. So rather than traipsing the high street or net I made a recycled one using a gorgeous red rose print on yellow background from a free Waterstones bag I received a few years ago. It's padded with an unused travel towel and the fastening is from a pocket from a bag that collapsed recently! The response has been overwhelming so I may well develop a range of laptop covers! Denim, cord and tweed as well as prints seem popular :)

New year new bags and prints

Hi there, am in the final year of my Surface Design degree so apols for lack of postings! Despite juggling my course and two jobs I'm still loving it. I'm very pleased to report that Linda Florence won Surface Designer of the Year at the end of last year and that the flooring I helped work on with her over the summer was exhibited in China, Japan and Central St Martins! I'll put a couple of new bags up shortly and images of my new flamenco inspired prints and ceramics when I can... Meanwhile a groovy online magazine on new designers worth checking out is Remedy Magazine x
