Little by little…over the past month or so I’ve been working on these bags. A little appliqué here, some stitching there, picking out the colorful floral prints to mix and match. I love this kind of process, really.
My in-progress appliqué and bag of scraps have been my constant companion. I had to stop myself from making any more appliqués before I got too ahead of myself. I tend to go a bit overboard when I first fall in love with a project.
I chose to turn these blooms into bags – two in the new style that I’ve been working on and another in a modified Nanette tote. They’re super soft and comfy, they type of bag you want to grab on your way out the door to hold something good to read, your wallet, your water bottle, and maybe a little knitting project. I’ve been using my butterfly bag for just that – a supplement to my purse for the fun stuff.
And really, can you not think about spring with all these pretty floral prints? This time of year all I want to create with are these vintage beauties! I’ve had a few requests for some dresses from my girlies, so that may be next on my agenda. We’ll see…
If you're interested, these are available in my shop.
