This girl is on a roll! My mum is not a bag person. She's been known to tote about a plastic carrier bag with her purse in it rather than use a handbag. Almost all the handbags she does own are hand-me-downs. So when she asked me to make her a bag in the style of my 241 tote I was a little surprised. She said she liked blue and she was wearing pale blue and grey today. I showed her the Amy Butler fabric I bought just the other day and some Kona solids that I thought might work with it. I started to cut out the side panels from the Hope Valley fabric, only to realise after I'd cut one, I didn't have enough for two. Actually after cutting one I thought it wouldn't look very nice for the sides so I said I'd make the slip pocket inside out of it.
I used some more Hope Valley for the side pockets. I can't remember the names of the specific Hope Valley prints.
I'll get her to model it when it's day light. Until then excuse the indoors photos. I was just eager to share it with you. I wonder when I'll get sick of making these bags because already I'm thinking I'd like to make more!
