Vintage quilt 'purse' or pocket, worn and patched.

Vintage quilt 'purse' or pocket, worn and patched.


A useful purse / pocket to slip inside a handbag or a pretty addition to a haberdashery collection.

The quilt was very old, very vintage and could date anywhere between 1920's (perhaps earlier) to 1950's.

I thought an asymmetrical design shape was suitable.

The lining is hand-dyed vintage linen in a muted grey green. The tiny florals are a slightly brighter 'spring green' against orange and darker green mini sprigs.

Really, there are quite a few colours involved but they are all duskied-down with age.

The closure is a vintage popper (these were somehow embedded in a linen strip for cut and use!) and the outer, decorative, button is linen covered.

There are little worn areas and on request, I will include a small collection of tiny vintage scraps for ongoing mends!

size when closed: 11cm x 9cm
