My New York Bag Collection

So a couple of nights before the New York trip I decided that a new project was in order. Something that would photograph well and be perfect for an April issue of a magazine.
Bunnies, pink, flowers are all things that remind me of spring. I had the perfect vintage pillowcases to re-purpose and decided to make a happy spring bag.
With doilies in hand I began to stitch the bag. There were obstacles like trying new things (metal snaps) and staying up late but the bag was completed.
My New York bag has inspired me to make more. I have re-purposed fabric cut out waiting to be sewn into my new Collection. The original is sitting in my dear shop waiting for someone to take a piece of New York home with them.

I know I biased (since I love working with vintage fabric, doilies and appliques), but I love it. Lovely shape too. x

I love not only the whimsical crochet accents, but they inventive way you linked the fabric for the purse shoulder strap. How adorable!
