When I come up with a new pattern I like~ I tend to get carried away making them. This one's been no exception.
I have so much fun choosing unusual prints. This Asian inspired one has been a favorite in my collection for a long time. It's very finely woven and soft.
I paired it with a creamsicle color combo of polka dots (by Fig Tree Quilts)
and a big blue vintage button and lacy trim.
My 2nd favorite part of making these bags?
Smashing down those gathers with the iron!!
I'm sure that's a big no-no in the sewing world but I like how they look this way. It makes the bag feel like a favorite vintage piece :)
P.S~ have you heard picnik is closing ? I used some of the premium features ~which are free 'til they close~ on a few of these photos here today. I'm not sure how I'll edit my pics in the future~ maybe try and finally learn my photoshop elements! ;)
