Thank you for the patchwork love lately! I appreciate all that positive feedback. It really gives a girl a boost of confidence to keep pushing on.
I had some patchwork left over from those custom bags I made last weekend, so I decided to make a small zipper bag for myself. (it’s about 5 inches high by 8 inches wide)
This one has some embellishments that I’m crazy about, including this awesome black and silver patch on the front. Then I framed that patch with rhinestone trim. A girlie bag has to have some sparkles!
I also added a black chain for a handle, which was a first for me but definitely worth the effort to figure out how to make it work. I think it really dresses up this little patchwork even more.
Another small detail – a tiny black fleur de lis patch sewn onto the back.
I really pushed myself with this project, setting off the pink fabrics with unexpected details, making the contrast more striking.
How fun combining the girlie pink patchwork with these black embellishments! This one is for me!
