I finished the bag from my giveaway last week. It will be heading off for Ms. Queen today! Vallen - if you want to be surprised, don't read this post!
She asked for a navy and beige combo, but she got more of a navy and cream combo. The stash can only do so much I guess. The bag is reversible. One side is made of a blue woven fabric...would you call that tweed? Not sure. The vintage scarf was begging to join in.
The other side is a vintage floral pattern. I made the closure from a pin made out of vintage jewelry. The red loop goes around the pin to close. Then obviously the pin moves to the other side if you reverse the bag.
I had a lot of fun making this bag. Especially since I knew it was going to Vallen! It was a challenge to make the bag reversible - the inside has to look as good as the outside. No place to hide mistakes or imperfections. But I think it turned out good. I hope she likes it!
Before I forget - I wanted to thank you all for your kind comments on my craft room. It is one of my favorite places on earth, and I am glad I got to give you a peek into it. If you are ever in the neighborhood, come on over and play okay! Of course of all the days to post those pictures, I pick the day Heather Bailey shows off her studio! WOW - did you guys see that? Gorgeous, but how could you paint and glue and make a big mess in such a beautiful room? I think mine will do just fine!
