30 days, 30 bags project: Day 15

This day started out really frustrating. I woke up very late, but still exhausted and I couldn't find any fabric combinations I liked. I knew I wanted to make another vintage doily flap, but I was struggling to match anything with the doily I originally chose. In the end I started working on this bag, but I wasn't completely convinced that it would look good. Martinus suggested that I try a different doily and suddenly everything worked and I was really happy. Sometimes you just need a little help.

This textured green fabric is a leftover from a custom order I made a few years back. It's really stiff so it's perfect for making a bag that stands upright. It looks so fresh and bright combined with the white doily.

I used this knitted strip for the strap. It matches the fabric perfectly.

The little red button just gives a tiny dot of shiny contrast.

I love this lining with the tiny heart flowers. I've had it for a while, but this is the first time I've used it.

So now it's 15 days done, 15 to go. I've had some difficult days, but overall it's been really good and I think this project was a great idea.

This bag is  now available here.
