A new bag for me!
I finally got around to making myself a little something for fall. When I saw this gorgeous pumpkin henna fabric at Randi's store, Fresh Squeezed Fabrics, I had to have it for all my fall ideas...plus a little extra to make something for myself :) I love the colors and pattern and thought it would be the perfect bag to usher in the fall season.
I paired the pumpkin henna fabric (from the new Farmer's Market line) with some chocolate brown linen. I love linen....love it! I love the how the combination turned out.
I added a pocket for my cell phone and even a tag on the inside. I like the idea of using the cotton twill tape with stamps and fabric ink. The tag really makes it "mine" and gives it a bit of a finished feel.
I feel like I'm on a bag kick right now - I just want them - lots of them. Maybe it has to do with the seasonal changes....I'm not sure :) I even have the Amy Butler Birdie Sling Pattern lying around awaiting my final fabric choice and some fusible fleece. It's a pretty large bag that I can haul everything in - my camera, books, notebooks and pens, and whatever else my little heart desires ;) I can't wait to make it!
So, a new bag to use for fall.....now all I need is a cool breeze ;)
