Introducing My "Gathering Poke"

Coming up with a name is always
fun....I remember naming my blog.
Mosaic-means many different things.
and Magpie is a gatherer....
A gatherer of many things
THAT'S ME!
I have always loved to sew
and one of my favorite things
to make is bags.
I have designed many a bag/purse
in the past and this is my latest.

First it needs a name......
I did a thesaurus search  of "purse"
and there was the perfect synonym,
Poke!
So, without further delay,
I present my
"Gathering Poke".



The poke is fully lined with
4 large pockets and a roomy
11" x 11" x 3" size.
 
 Perfect for your needlework 
project or returning books
 to the library.


My "Gathering Poke" can
be found in my Etsy Shop!


Love to all,
Deb

I love all the wheels churning to come up with just the right name for your blog and also your adorable bag! "Poke".. I like that! Lovely touches like the grey pearl shell buttons and the torn straps. And of course, the row of seam binding creating a charming ruffle! Nice work!

Quite the marvellous looking bag that you've designed, sewn and named. Always great to have a bag with so many handy pockets too.

Hi Deb what a great name for a bag like that. I've never heard of that name here!
Love the gorgeous ruffle - it turns a simple tote into a bag of elegance!
