Two for Tuesday

While I have the time I thought I would do another post.

Last year I was asked by a friend to make a bag as a present for her friend.

The fabric is heavy weight calico, Golden molding paste, scrim and acrylic paint, this bag is lined with painted calico and could be reversible, but the heavily painted fabric is awkward to turn through.

It was difficult to get a picture as it was before Christmas and the weather was grim and the lighting poor.  




The colours blend a lot more in real life than shown here.



Overall I was pleased with how the bag turned out and plan on making a few more.

I love that bag. Lucky the friend who now owns it. It has everything - style, practicality and it looks comfortable to carry around.

Thanks Heather, I must admit it was hard to part with it once finished :)

I would definitely not be able to part with that. I should imagine it's quite hard wearing too.

It's just beautiful and useful at the same time Carol. I love it. You'll have orders galore for this!
