I had to have some of those lace and velvet trims – so delicate and lovely! No plans for them yet but I was inspired by the vintage look and the different color combinations, from a feminine and girly day bag to a little darker side for an evening bag.
I also needed to have some of Jennifer’s new So St Croix fabrics. I might make these into a summer purse or clutch because they remind me of a resort town or the beach. My mom recently gave me a newspaper article saying that turquoise is the color of 2010, so this is right in line with the fashion psychics.
The colors in the jelly roll make me think of kitchen linens, like patchwork placemats. Those one-yard cuts in the foreground feel like they would look great as the lining of a purse, with a solid for the outside.
Finally, I picked up a couple fabrics from Patty Young’s fabulous new collection, definitely destined for a summer purse or party clutch. Ah yes, more turquoise!
