Tea Bags!

I've recently been making tea themed purses for retailers and to take to market to sell...and jiggedy-jig the ones that came back are now posted on my Etsy store until the end of August.

I've made them all lovingly by hand and the images on each purse I have freehand machine embroidered and then added to with hand embroidered details in most cases. Each purse has a leather or heavy-duty and tactile (velvety), fabric backing, with cotton or linen lining. All the details are with the images on my Etsy Store in case anyone is interested?

There are more images of other purses and bags in this series on my flickr site too, for your viewing pleasure...

Now I have to make 20 tea cosies for an exhibition in Morpeth, New South Wales, for mid-August, as well as a clothing collection for the DEBUT exhibition at Melbourne's Fashion Exposed! Busy busy busy....
Never too busy for a cup of tea though!

Your work is amazing. I stumbled upon your work some time back and only recently (after seeing you in SMH) realised that you are the Tara Badcock that I went to LC with. Remember Churinga? Ar, those were the days, or not...

All the best,

Hi Tara, I found your work on flickr a while ago, then when started up my own little blog, found yours. I found some old tea cosy knitting patterns last night and thought of your beautiful work. I was wondering if I could feature your cosy pics in a post about them? Kind Regards, Emma.

I've just stumbled upon your blog and are so very happy about it.

You make some beautiful things and I am chuffed about your obsession with teacosies.
