It has been such a fun couple of weeks, making bags with fabric with my own pattern designs! I just finished the fifth bag, which is a birthday gift to my mother who turned 65 the other day. I made hers with a pattern design called "Virginia" for the exterior fabric (fun fact is that it is named after my mothers middle name), and "Sahara Rokoko" for the interior fabric. They both are from my pattern collection COLONIAL INN and the color set "Pacific" which consists of coral and turquoise colors and hues. The zippers for the main compartment and the inner pocket is in a contrasting turquoise and I really like the outcome.
Moms bag is a traveler size, which is big enough to use as a weekend- or overnight bag, but small enough to use as a city bag too.
I made two more traveler sized bags:
The third traveler bag I made with a new print of my signature pattern Adrian Paisley. This time not on velvet as I used for the pillow cases, but on canvas linen which is a better material for bags and purses.
Last and least, well at least smaller, I made two hand bags at the same time. With the pattern design "Evening Bloom", same pattern as Morning Bloom I used in the traveler bag above, but in another color set. Also from the pattern collection GARDEN GROOVE.
