Birthdays are the thing here at present, and in my usual fashion, this bag will be arriving late. In fact, it is still in my house, and I am hoping the birthday girl in question does not mind me showing you her bag today (she has already had a wee sneak peak herself).
The pattern is adapted from the Charming Handbag pattern in this book:Bend-the-rules Sewing: The Essential Guide to a Whole New Way to Sew
It was one of the first ever sewing books I purchased, and was indispensible for getting me started with the basics.
The lovely green floral was from my latest vintage fabric spree at the Crafty Mothers local country oppie.
Speaking of The Crafty One, 'tis her birthday tomorrow, and being a lover of things red (and purple, often together, while hanging out this group), I whipped her up an Amy Butler Swing Bag. The most fabulous fabric, which still is a favorite, even though I stare up at it each day, is from here.
