Good Stuff Made In Britain

A christmas present that arrived in January after a five month wait.
 Stork scissors from Ernest Wright, hand-made in Sheffield since 1902.
 We watched the film and had to buy in to it!

After my liaison with the tarpaulin I started thinking about other durable fabrics
 and ended up with this antique finish waxed cotton fabric made in Britain.

I've been having a bit of a play with linings and eyelets.

Contrast stitch or not?

I am going to line them with different vintage fabrics,
 most of which will have originally been made in Britain.

This one is from the States and used to be a tablecloth.
As always as good on the inside as on the outside.

I am big into eyelets at the moment.

Being made from the same stuff as wax jackets I intend these bags to be real workhorses.

3 Leons weigh 3.985kg, no sweat.
