Gifts for SALE

By Artist Sophie Appleton, made by 'Country Swirls'.

Tote bags for sale - I was really pleased with the quality of the finished tote bags and had to have one for myself. Because of the size and strength they are great for the beach, shopping, swimming etc. I used mine for all the endless things needed with a toddler, everything from nappies to wellie boots, and with the long straps going over my shoulder it kept my arms free so I could safely hold my little ones hand.

Made from biodegradable and sustainable hessian. Inside laminated to ensure it is waterproof. Bag size approximately 36cm high X 39cm across X 14cm deep. Deluxe strong padded handle in a matching hessian fabric.

The designer 'Sophie' label has been sewn onto the side of the bag for that extra touch of authenticity, with my trade mark smiling face :-) which I add on to all of my paintings hidden in the pen work over the watercolours.

About Country Swirls

I have been successfully selling watercolour paintings since May 2011 and my husband Keith (a clothing & embroidery manufacture with 30 years experience) has produced some of those paintings onto embroidered sweatshirts and gifts creating 'Country Swirls' company in November 2015. Visit our new web site to see the items in more detail www.countryswirls.com

Before I was a watercolour artist I used to design and create embroidery’s. So I have returned to embroidery Art and decided to turn some of my popular watercolour paintings into beautiful embroidered sweaters and gifts.

Sophie's Designs; I have free hand drawn and painted a picture, and then I have turned this into an embroidery by using computer embroidery software. I have mapped out each individual stitch on the computer myself, slowly layering and building up the design. I have then chosen the colours of thread I'd like to use and the fabric. Then this map of digitized information has been sent from my computer to a sewing machine and sewn by an experienced machinist. Although I do love to paint and draw, I’m afraid when it comes to actual sewing I wouldn’t be able to darn a sock!


Examples of the 'Wise Old Couple of Owls' and 'Fluffy Chicken Trio' paintings I used to inspire the embroidery designs.
