Well, actually, it started with another bag I was making for a friend of a friend, for a Christmas Present. I was so impressed with the new bag I'd made, that I started dreaming of a new one for me. My current bag has flannellete panels, which is very Wintery . . . well, that's what I told myself for justification!
I have been hoarding these old worn out boots from a couple of seasons ago. I loved them dearly, so tucked them away in the cupboard thinking that surely I could make something out of them one day.
The day arrived this week. I had a rush of inspiration and some new Liberty fabric that I couldn't resist. I will post another picture of the finished product. A few nights in the making and my Summer Edition Handbag will be complete.
This is just a little taste of the other bag, just in case any sneaky peaky eyes are looking!!!
. . . and I'm still madly obsessed with my birds. Just fascinating to watch
