It looks more yellow than lime in this picture...I love those viny flowers going up the sides.
The inside is called "Frosted Fondant." Nice and cheery. I love the big mouth of this bag.
Here she is with my stuff--this is usually what's rolling around the bottom of my handbag.
These framed bags are deceptive--they look smallish, but they hold TONS of stuff. Including a tape measure that you may have accidentally pinked the edges off of but is still perfectly useful, especially for spontaneous sewing shop adventures. This would be way big enough to stash phone-keys-cash for a night out. Survey says it would be better if it had a handle of some sort, so next time I buy some I'll get ones with loops on them and attach a chain of some sort. It's amazing how a little bit of shiny metal makes something look professional.
AND...I finished up the bags for my friend's wedding in July. They're all packaged and ready to ship.
That green is looking darker than it actually is. The colors all go together very nicely.
Each dress is the same but in a different color. I used the Made By Rae Buttercup Bag pattern reduced by about 10% and added a little carry-strap inside (I don't like carrying clutches and would prefer something to slip over my wrist. I always feel like I'm suddenly going to need both hands and what will I do if one is full of purse? Oh, I'm in the wedding, and wearing yellow. That's why the strap concerned me so much). The strap tucks neatly inside for those that do like carrying clutches, but my guess is that we might need our hands fairly free that day.

And now, some random thoughts. Blogger changed how you post photos--hate it!! And it's amazing to me how I can play with one photo and still not be able to do my goods justice (i.e. the greens above that just won't be green) but then can play with another where a silver button looks red for some odd reason and tweak it until it looks exactly like it's supposed to. How do I do it? Or not do it, depending on which photo we're talking about.
Ok. Enough chit-chat. Off to sew. She's going to be adorable--can't wait to share the photos!
