Commission Complete: A bag for Alison
March 7, 2011
This was a fun one to make, and a great way to start the new year.
Alison’s husband commissioned it to give as a wedding anniversary gift. Nice one!
It’s made from a mixture of vintage and modern ties, in black, navy and white.
Cathy do you recognise these buttons?
Yes, they came from a bundle of buttons she salvaged from one of her local op shops.
They are gorgeous and almost look like studs.
Just right for this bag.
….and Lyndal might recognise this lining fabric…
Over the Christmas break I was given a suitcase full of fabric treasures from Lyndal.
The suitcase had a code lock, that I couldn’t break…. so after trying for a number of days…. I took to it with a hammer!
I am glad I did, because the treasures inside were worth it. Including this black, grey and bronze ticking.
… again, just perfect for the lining of this one….
