Happy Mother's Day!
If you don't celebrate this great holiday, may you and your mom have a great day anyway. :D
This project is in loving memory of my maternal grandmother. I have "borrowed" one of her many brooches as accent to my violet clutch purse... that field of flowers just needed a pretty butterfly didn't it? I'm loving this bag for Mother's Day brunch.
I had a scrap of this lovely floral cotton and wanted to put it to good use.... and I think that it turned out rather well. I started with a basic sketch of the shape that I was going for and transferred that to some very thick sew-in interfacing. Then I laid that on my fabric, added seam allowances and cut it out.
I had wanted to break up the pattern by binding the edges with a coordinating fabric but I didn't like how it looked... so I ripped it all off and did without. For a nice finish, I used Grandma's brooch.
While this bag looks flat from the front, you will see that it's not. I didn't like the rounded fold-over so I pinched the sides and tacked them down. You can see it better from the side:
