I listed a few items in my shop last night. A bag and pencil pouch and a zip pouch. I've been making an effort to include handstitching in everything--because I love to do it, and also because I love the old-timey look of it.
I received a lovely comment the other day from Angie on one of the brown zip pouches saying it looked like something her grandfather would have carried. That was the biggest compliment...exactly the look I'm going for. Maybe this lipstick red ensemble looks like it could have been carried around by your grandma? :)
