Are you a Downton Abbey fan? After fighting the mobs at Quilt Market this year for the official Downton Abbey fabric (exclusively licensed to Andover Fabrics) I was determined to fashion a bag for Downton fans. Thus, the DOWNTON ANNY was created! Adding a feather embellishment to the band, and adorning it with a rhinestone crown, I whisked it off to Tina’s just in time for the Season 4 Premiere. The faux leather handle is from Studio Mio and the interior is lined with the quintessential castle fabric seen here in the first ruffle layer.
And so, still feeling those royal vibes, I designed my next bag, “Lady Berkeley.” I’m so in love with the vibrant colors and textured body of this lovely bag, parting was such sweet sorrow. Fashioned from upholstery fabric from Cowgirls & Lace, faux leather for the gusset, and a bold vintage tassel, this bag would feel just as comfortable on the Berkeley campus as it would at tea in Berkeley Square!
So until next time, I’m wishing you Happy Times in the Kingdom!
No, I have not watched it but have heard a lot of buzz about it.
I’m so uncool I havent seen the show yet (I know, sad) but it’s definitely on my list!

Oohhhh Anny — I’m way behind on the ‘Downton Abby’ shows but I like the Downton Anny bag in those elegant fabrics and the little crown and. PCM handles. And then the second bag in upholstery or the square one makes me feel like we should hop into an open touring car and go somewhere for tea. Enjoyed your blog as usual. Meg M.
They are so beautiful! I love them both! ❤
