It has been a busy few weeks with the Bolla Tay Design Fair in Padstow at the beginning of August and all the work which preceded that, followed by all the work which followed that! Thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hello in sunny Padstow, talk about handbags and fabrics, and to those of you who are the new owners of a Handmade by Ellie handbag!
With all that’s gone on I haven’t had much time to update my blog with finished photos of the Shelstone Weekend handbag, so without further ado, here it is…

I had great fun making this bag. It took a long time to ensure the snowflake design of the lining all matched up properly (like the spots on the Shelstone of my previous post), but it was worth it. This fabric is full of such vibrant, rich colours, it’ll add a touch of summer wherever it goes!
A bit of info about the bag – the Shelstone Weekend features a large inside zip pocket, two slip pockets, an inside side panel pocket as well as two buttoned pockets on the front. It has expandable sides – useful for all the things you need for a weekend away or a day out. For all information about the handbag, click here.
