Whiplash Bag Challenge: Dorothy Bag





CATEGORY: Fancy

A
vintage inspired bag made from a scrap of feather printed fabric fron Cheeky Beaks, a $3/3m demin purchase from TradeMe, a few bits and pieces from my stash, and that gorgeous beaded fringe which I picked up at the local sewing centre which matches PERFECTLY.

A pink, chocolate, and denim creation inspired by, and named after, my Great-Aunt Dorothy who passed away earlier this week. Pictured above are the bag, and details of the button/ribbon tie, the interior (Moda + Amy Butler) and the beaded fringe. I loved making this bag (which borrows from the Amy Butler Nappy and Swing Bag patterns) and, as such,
I've decided to keep it...

That is so sweet that you named the bag after her inpiration.

I especially like the fringe...it really gives the bag that extra something!

Gorgeous bag, and lovely inspiration. Having seen it 'in the flesh' this afternoon, it is even gorgeouser (if there is such a word) than the pictures show. Even my husband thought it beautiful.

Wow! This is the first time I have seen someone else use my fabric - very exciting. I love your mix of fabrics and textures.
