Bag Lady...



No work done today - only had about an hour free as school let out early for parent consultations - and I decided to eat lunch and browse my email instead... But, although it's not technically April for an hour and half where I am, the pattern for the April Bag on the BQL Bag Challenge has been released to the people doing the challenge, so I can now publish my photo of the one I made to test the instructions. So at least I have something fun to show you!

The photo is not a brilliant one - the bag has a gusset at the bottom, in a contrasting colour, which is what looks kind of odd in the photo at the left - because the bag is sitting on a chair rather than hanging, with some weight in it, it doesn't show well. Perhaps I'll try to get a better photo tomorrow. Anyway, this bag will also serve another purpose, as it will be sent to...someone...for a private bag swap I am doing, courtesy of Barbara. Won't go out in the post for a few days, as I want to include a few goodies with it, and need to buy some...

I think it's a great bag! I love the contrasts and the cute buttons with the dimensional feel to them!!

Gorgeous bag. I especially like the little details at the base of the handles. Very cute.

So I have a bit of a blog break and once again I'm hopelessly behind in my blog reading. Wow. Ok, now I'm really feeling like a slacker. I have GOT to get some projects finished!!!!

Very pretty bag - like the flower/button embellishments.
