I finally finished a few bags that have been on my sewing table way too long. Both were commissions, and I thought she would choose which one she wanted, and is buying both because she can't decide! This bird bag is a new favorite of mine- I'm using some of the leather scraps I acquired recently- stitched on a linen bamboo print.
This bag is a fun contrast between the geometric pattern and the great vintage floral that a friend gave me- thanks again Stella! I could not decide on an interior fabric- knowing the customer likes pinks and greens- then took a risk with this print. I like how the vivid print peaks out from the conservative exterior.
I've been busy making some really fun little children's bags out of vintage fabric squares and lace- they could also be camera bags or just little going out bags. I just can't seem to photograph them very well- so they will sit until Sunday or Monday. I can't do anything else until after Saturday- when 27 third graders will invade my house for a Birthday Party. Wish us luck!
