Description

I love to have a new bag for every winter and summer.  I am running a little late this year but I have finally finished my new winter bag (it is winter in Australia!).  I have been in love with  the Echo fabric range by  Lotta Jansdotter for ages and when I finally got my hands on some I know I wanted to make my new bag from it.  The pattern I have, Black Forest, used is by a great Aussie designer Melly & Me.  I went for a drive with a friend a few years ago and we found this great button shop that stocked many, many vintage buttons.  I bought a large celluloid button that turned out to be perfect for this bag.  So now I am all set with my new bag.  Love it!  I have entered it into the Sew Sweetness Purse Palooza 2012 flickr competition where I am known as Knitting Maide.

Great job-I love it. Nice to have a custom bag that no one else will have! I have a book by Melly & Me called "Kaleidoscope" that I love. Happy sewing!

That button shop sounds awesome, and the button is perfect for this bag! I have a bit of that Echo line and it is really nice. Good luck!

This is gorgeous. I love the Echo line - I think your choices were perfect for this bag.

I love the Echo line, too. Great fabric choice for your bag. I can't wait for her next fabric line to come out.

I am sooo looking forward to Bella by Lotta Jansdotter too. I am lucky enough to have a 5" charm square pack that was given to me by a friend who got it from Spring Market. I am just savouring it while I think of the best way to use it!!! blue_heart Karen

I am jealous Sewwellmaide that you have the fabric. I like the print in the line that is a dark blue
