Yes another bag!


I had this image in my mind of a bag I wanted to make. It had to be in what I thought was country colours.


I bought this material months ago and only yesterday did I find myself making it up. Why the time delay? What if it didn't come up to the image I had in my mind. Easier to leave the fabric un-cut but even then I found the material calling out to me.


So yesterday it sung out so loudly I just had to make it up to keep the material quiet and I am glad I did. Is it how I imagined it would turn out? Yes, but better.


I used thicker cord, cut it shorter than in the pattern and made the material to cover the handles longer to give it a ruffled look. To make it a bit more country looking, I appliqued a love heart on to the front. I included a button and button loop so that I could close the bag up. The lace was white so I used Parisian Essence to give it an aged look.


I love my new bag.
