Liberty Slouch!

Details of my Valentine's day Heather Ross giveaway are here.

I've long been in need of a new Slouch bag, after my trusty vintage one literally got worn out!

These bags are super comfortable to 'wear', and are especially kind to dicky backs!

I always have one when I'm travelling so my hands are 'free' for lumping all the other stuff!  So with an upcoming trip looming, I thought I'd better get organised and rustle one up!

The fabrics used to make this bag are all offcuts I was either given or bought at silly prices!

I just love the purple tweed, and I'm sure my granny used to have a coat made from the aqua wotsit!

And inside - some Laura Ashley linen!

But the Pièce de résistance for me are the Liberty buttons!  My sister brought these back from Liberty London last year, and I've been hanging on to them for 'that special project'!
