Mama's got a brand new bag....

...can ya hear the music??? Ha!!
Well I am a Mama and yes I made a new Spring Bag!!!
When Deb was over last Thur she wanted to make the simple tulip bag.
Called that because you use 4 pieces that are cut out like tulip petals.
Takes only a couple hours to do from cut out to sew up.
I used W&N batting instead of my usual stiff Pellon interfacing.
Made the handles from fabric and longer for a every day shoulder bag.
I dug out a pretty vintage pink button with some bling on it for the closure.
The fabric I have had for a bit, so pretty and feminine looking.
It is Hannah Bella by Robyn Pandolph.
Came also in a pretty green and pink. I have just a small bit of those left.
May have to do a scrappy something from them.
Lining is in a green tone on tone print that matches the leaves and of course the pink handles.
Just made one pocket on the outside did not do any inside.
This is soft bag , easy to toss in wash too.
Did not think in time to get a pic of Deb's bag before she left.
Saturday's post about the studio tour was suppose
to be an auto Monday post.. ;-)

Anyway don't forget to go look, some are right messy like us reg folks!!
