Hello! How lovely of you to stop by. It has yet again been a crazy weekend. Because she was having some trouble in her current host family, we decided to invite another exchange student. Not for a whole year, but just for the two months she has left of her stay in Holland. This meant a lot of rearranging inside our home, so that she can have her own room. Next Wednesday she will come, and then we will be with 6! I’m really looking forward to having her around; she is a very nice and bright young lady, and it will be great, to be not the only female in the house for a change.
And still there had been a little bit of time to craft. And I really felt like making another bag. As usual I started with collecting a bunch of fabrics and the first thing I did was to embroider a panel for the front of the bag.
As I went on, I kept changing the fabrics I was using, so I can’t show you the pictures I made at the start, because I ended up with a complete different bag as I originally started to make. For those who have been reading my little blog before, that won’t be a huge surprise.
This is the front panel. The center is embroidered and I tried to match the colours in the fabric surrounding the panel. I think now it looks quite nice.
The fabrics I used for the bag itself, are mainly woolen fabrics, a bit of tweed, a piece of loden.
The bag is lined with Sari Fabrics in different shades of red and it has a pocket with a zipper.
Maybe not the best possible picture!
Two extra pockets in the front of the bag.
Again it was a challenge to mix and match all the different fabrics and colours; but then again that is what I really love about working with fabrics.
