|Ok, so awhile ago my Mum started messing around with the idea of making herself a new pocketbook. Fine, dandy, suit yourself, and have fun even. Then of course, she sucked me into her adventure. I'm a sucker for a new project. Especially when it comes to picking out colors. I love it. And seeing as though my Mum got the bags pattern from Attic24, I decided to go hog-wild with the colors!|
|This is an Attic24 Bag that my Mum made for herself. Its made with Periwinkle, Honeydew, Light Raspberry, Pale Yellow, Light Coral, Soft White, Orchid, and Petal Pink. There are two straps made of all of the colors and and there are four flowers made of all of the colors as well with buttons in the middle. This bag is lined with cotton fabric and has a button sewn inside to close.|
Bernat. Of course, Bernat intended it to be a Beach Bag, not a Pocketbook, so of course it needed some tweeting here and there.
And then there was the lining. Oh, the dreaded lining. If I was just going to line the bag with fabric, ok no problem, but this bag needed stability too if it was going to be used as a Pocketbook. So I had to not only make a template for the lining but for a cardboard liner as well. I took the cardboard and lined the two sides and the bottom of the bag. Then I sewed then each piece of cardboard separately into the bag, piece by piece; three sides of the bag lined, two to go. Eh, the other two sides were easy. Now, we're all complete! But, if it were up to me, they would be Sunflowers not Daisies ;0). I'm still looking. It will happen, I promise you.
