Although I had no aspirations last night to put a bag together for the blog.... someone very special sent me something wonderful in the mail. And then I just had to, because I was so pleased and honoured, and insired. So, I used some of my favourite pieces to create Clementine. It's a continuation of the Christmas pagaent theme.
(thank you, Kim Z)
I added a button closure to the flap. The button itself took me great care and contemplation. I used the stash recently acquired through a very thoughtful elderly woman. (thank you Dianne)
It is in the shape of a big, budding flower. I'll bet a fur coat was harmed in the making of this bag; and I'm so grateful!
The strap deserves a category of its own as well. It came from the stash that Lory gave me on my recent trip to her country estate :)
I'm telling you folks. Some bags are just bags to me. Others amuse me. Then there are bags that I pour myself into. This is one such bag.
It's all Shauna's fault, anyway. She sent me those gorgeous organic dark chocolate bars and Hot Dang! We had the rosemary one last night to celebrate Brian turning 42. We were not disappointed. And then with all that glorious dark chocolate swirling around inside me I just had to celebrate by sewing a bag.
And if you're anything like Mel, who happened to snag herself a sweet bag earlier this week....
This special bag could be yours for just $45.00!
So, start your bids here. I'll be waiting, petting that red velvet, until 8 pm, cst.
