The colours of Autumn
My favourite seasons have always been Spring and Autumn. True, I can't help but love the warmer weather that hopefully arrives with Summer and I can't help but enjoy a good covering of snow in Winter, especially if I don't have to travel too far and can wrap up warm snuggling next to the fire. However, Spring and Autumn are, to me, calming times of the year that are full of hope with Spring greens and beautiful Autumn oranges.
I enjoy using Autumn colours in my work too. My previous post featured my little owl brooch, using oranges, browns and yellows in the design, well there's also this very hand Patchy Pockets, aptly named "Autumn". I used deep chocolate corduroy and a two other fabulous fabrics featuring patterns in deep reds, browns and dull greens, all perfect of this time of year. The front and back covers have been decorated with a row of tiny blue seed beads further adding to the overall tactile feel of the wallet. Inside are six internal sleeve pockets, ideal for keepsakes and nick-nacks, business cards or as a general handbag storage wallet.
Enjoy the remaining Autumn days before Winter kicks in!
