No more sneak peeks, here they are - my newest bags!
All I can say is that I hit 2011 running! These bags actually started with these. As soon as I made them, I had the next version worked out in my mind, but then sickness and the holidays hit. Thankfully, the idea never left my head (a miracle), so as soon as things settled down, I got busy with my sewing machine.
This orange & pink one was the first I made. It was love at first sight - exactly what I had in mind! (love that!!)
I then immediately went up to my sewing room and picked out the "good fabrics". I had been saving this fabric combo for just the right project.
As much as I liked that bag, I had to make another. I dug around for the perfect fabric. Oh my, how I love this one! The print fabric is by Alexander Henry from the Matisse collection. Have I ever mentioned that Matisse is one of my favorite artists? The moment I saw this fabric I had to have it. This bag is MINE! I haven't carried a bag that I made since the fall, so a new artsy-crafty babe bag was long over due.
Oh, and there will be a pattern. Soon. Very soon. I've been a woman possessed!!
