It's in the Bag!

 I finished my summer market bags I made from Ikea rugs.  What's in the bag is winter, in the form of hats and scarfs I stuffed inside to plump up the empty bags. I added the faux roses, a pretty pink shawl and 3D glasses, since I didn't have a pair of sunglasses handy.  Funny the things that end up in the junk drawer.;-)

 This bag is for my darling daughter and is lined in Tim Holtz fabric.  Tim Holtz is a artist and designer that works primarily in paper crafts, and now is designing fabric.  This fabric called my name...and Kristen's too.
 The shawl was a birthday gift from dear Jane.  I decorated the hat for a tea party at my cousin Di's home, maybe ten years ago.  I made all the ribbon flowers during my ribbon flower period.  My creativity does come and go in periods...When I have some time I should list them...I've tried most everything from ceramics and basket weaving to quilting and silk screening..

It was a cloudy afternoon, not much natural light.
 My 3D glasses.  Ha!  Matthew Mead and Fifi  O'Neill would never let that happen in a vignette.
 Any way,  I am pleased with how the bags turned out.  My fabric lining is from the thrift.  It looks a little like bark cloth, but it s upholstery fabric.
 I look forward to attending a few sales and markets this spring and summer, and will enjoy stuffing the things I find in my groovy new bag. I know that Kristen will enjoy her bag too.
 Some details...
 Pockets inside for your "3D glasses"...
wallet and such.

Truth in blogging.  All is stuff was on the coat rack, because, as of yesterday, it's still winter here!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful day.
