Close up shot of the Tea Party bagkeeper

Not your typical English style tea party...but the kind where the kids have had too much (kool-aid) "tea" and are now running around like nuts! I love these vintage style animated dishes embroideries. This one is hand embroidered, by me, onto white linen. I used colorful repro vintage fabrics to border the embroidery and some red jumbo rick-rack for added pizazz! Here's a great way to get control over all those plastic store bags that are threatening to take over your home! This bag is fully lined with a red cotton fabric, there are no raw edges, and I have added some elastic to both the top and bottom edge. There is a hanging tab sewn to the top edge with a grommet in it...it can be hung either from the grommet by a nail or hook, or there is also a loop below the grommet on the back that you can run a ribbon or string through and hang it by that (if you want to hang it from a door or cupboard knob or a larger size hook that the grommet won't fit over). This is a roomy bag, approx 18" x 9", and is well put together, so it should serve you well for a long time. A nice vintage style addition to your kitchen and another stylish solution to your storage needs. I just listed this in my Etsy shop...so swing on by ! Good night!
