Flower Power!

In spite of having a flu bug over the past few days, I was inspired to make something bold and bright to help me think of warm spring temperatures rather than the FREEZING temps we are experiencing in Europe. My heart goes out to all those who are not as fortunate to have warm houses and clothes to protect them in these extreme weather conditions.

I've been wanting to make myself a bag for some time now but never got around to designing it. As I was cleaning out a few things in my office, I found a pattern for a pleated purse that I had printed from the internet ages ago (and unfortunately it doesn't have the link on it so I can't say who to thank for this cute little bag....). I had some bright flower fabric purchased  from IKEA originally to make some pillows for spring and thought it would make a great bold flower bag for spring and summer (plus it has teal in it which as I said in my last post is my favorite color right now!).

So, here's my Flower Power bag ready to be worn with something bright red :-)!

Miss A was also asking for a small zipper bag that she can use for her sewing stuff and all the yarn braids she has been making. Her bag is shown in the photo below - we are both Flower Power girls!

See you again soon!
