I actually like it. And so did she. I hand stitch a beautiful applique that I had and a few rose puffs with beaded accessory. The flowers are actually from a bridal gown. So it does has special meaning behind it. The outer trim is a delicate scroll. It ties in the back. The base fabric is a beautiful white brocade.
I love making bridal bags and have several to show. I will get to it eventually. The bridal bibs. I think that they could be something fun for babies that are in weddings or attending. I loved making it.
This pattern is available.
The front of the bag is a beautiful floral print with rich classy colors. The black has a light bit of sheen, very subtle. The bronze buckle a perfect addition.
On the back side of this bag is a black band that is all pockets. Each is individual narrow pockets great for sunglasses lip gloss etc.. What a great idea. Inside has pockets as well. Fully lined in black with a double shoulder strap.

This is the full view of the shawl. Look at all the detail. The color is rich with a bit of sheen. It is light weight, perfect for Florida. I wanted a light weight shawl so when I am at my craft shows or sitting outside I have some thing to cover. Or when I am out just wearing it because it is absolutely fabulous.
This is as close as I could get with my camera to show you all of the detailed work. I wish I could have gotten closer. But let me tell you, it is perfect.
My friends name is Ceci and here are the links to all of her amazing work. I encourage you to look. She is an amazing artist.
Thank you for looking.

The bag is a double shoulder strap with a magnetic snap on the inside. Two pockets on the inside that are divided.

This particular fabric is full of color, bright red, blue, green and touches of gold. If you look close you can see butterflies.
The flap closure is a magnetic snap. The flap itself is a circle. Very cute.
The printed bag is free motion machine stitching. It has a double shoulder strap.
The red bag is just your basic bag with no quilting.
It has two pockets on the inside, flat bottom.
This is a close up of the flap and fabric with free motion machine stitching. I used the red dot fabric to keep the color flow moving to the inside of the bag.
This pattern was very easy to make, it just took a afternoon to put it together. I like that.

Members apply to my moderator and I, then they have a certain time frame to complete a bag. Then 4 pictures that best suites the bag they have made will be placed in a folder, members of the group will then choose and place 3 winners, top honors, 1st and second.
I am very excited. I think this is a great way for them to participate in the group activities.
The exciting part for me is looking at their amazing talents, getting them to push their box a little bit farther then their norm.
I will post pictures of the bags when we get closer.
Good luck my friends!!

machine stitch the entire bag. I used a sun yellow for an accent on the top and the same color for the liner.
I then added a machine decorative stitch on the top band, handle and accessorie case for the side. This my own pattern and is available.
This is the side view of the accessorie case that comes with it. It is the perfect size for your cell or keys. What ever you have that is small and easy to slide in. It has a velcro closure. The handle ties to the shoulder strap to the bag. The straps are long enofe to tie around your belt loop for another accent or just leave it on the bag. Which ever works best for you. The pattern icludes instructions for this as well. It is a perfect bag for the summer. Make on for yourself or for a friend. The pattern is available and the bag is available for a limited time.

This is a smaller organizer that has a flap that keeps all your things inside secure. You make the organizer with the size pockets you need for all your important things.
This is a photo of the organizer with a few items inside. It is not completely full, just half way. You simply fold it up and secure. You make this fun accessorie in any color. Here cotton is used.
I have the pattern available on my website and on the Ebay store.

The fabric is so striking, it is as if you can reach out and smell each individual soft petal.
The pattern is a unique shape with a hard bottom for stability. The closure is a loop over a satin black button. The inside is fully lined with two pockets that are divided. This bag not only looks fabulous but is functional as well.
This bag has a double shoulder strap. The bottom band is a micro fiber to keep nice as well as the shoulder strap.

The handle is a double shoulder strap with added rings at the top of the straps. It has the appearance of a gathered bag. But the gathers are there to stay. They will not shift around on you. Great for added comfort.
The inside of this bag, picture shown, opens wide. It has a pocket to keep all your important things in place. The fabric for the liner is a beautiful shade of rose pink, with a faded floral design.
This bag is fabulous to throw and go.
Great style and colors for the lazy days of spring and summer.
