Is anyone getting tired of this fabric? If not, see this post, and this, and this. I have officially used every last piece of this striped fabric.
This is what I did with the last few scraps....
|Roses made from scraps.|
All right, back to the bag....
In this last picture you can see the inside. It has a zipper pocket on one side (it has a red zipper) and a slip pocket on the other.
If you look back at the first picture, the red thing on the front is a pocket. I also put pockets on each side...perfect for sunglasses.
Here is a link to the pattern that inspired my bag. Mine, however, has changes. Like I stated earlier I am experimenting and learning. I'd like to design and sell my own bags, eventually.
I made the rose from scraps. Then I glued on green ribbon for the leaves using a hot glue gun. I then glued a pin on the back of the flower and attached it to my bag. I also like to experiment with scraps to make different kinds of flowers. :)
I took this bag on a "test drive" out shopping. I asked my daughter how my bag looked as I shopped. Of course, you have to ask several different times because the bag might look different in different stores or even different sections of the store. Know what I mean? Anywho, I got a thumbs up...not sure if that meant "whatever mom...if I give a thumbs-up she won't ask again for another 5 min." or "yes, my mom is crazy." LOL!
Have a great one!
