Shirring + Posie=New Handbag

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I spent mine, as expected, buried in fabric. Cut, cut, snip, snip. You get the picture.

I did sneak in a little time to design a couple of handbags. After completing a prototype of each, I sent one back to the drawing board. I wasn't happy with the overall shape of the bag. That's how it goes sometimes.

Here is the bag that passed the test. Although very simple in design, it has the feel of shabby chic and romance with the shirred upper band and the pretty little yo-yo posie.


I happen to really love the green and pink fabric combination.


I hope you have a fantastic day.

Aloha!
