Last year I had the great good fortune to sew sample bags for Ellen Medlock Studios. Some of my samples made it to Ellen's booth at Quilt Market in Houston in 2010. Ellen designs incredibly cute handbag patterns and gorgeous high quality indie fabrics: www.ellenmedlock.com.
I made the bags pictured above using Ellen's downloadable Interchangeable3 pattern: http://ellenmedlockstudio.com/onepdfdoofin1.html (You can slide one fabric bag off the purse frame, and replace it with another for a totally new look.) She also has kits with the cute owl fabric, if you'd like to make one of your own.
OWLS: The cute and colorful owls are Alexander Henry fabric. The multi-colored stripe lining includes a small inner pocket. I added beads and couched red cording to the bottom of the bag just for fun.
FLORAL: The floral bag is "fancy schmancy" with a bit of an Oriental vibe. There are thin gold metallic thread accents on both the outer floral fabric and the deep purple and gold lining. I used long beaded trim to accent this bag.
And YOU, dear reader, may win your choice of one of these two bags! Enter before midnight CDT on August 27, 2011. I will randomly select and announce a winner on Sunday, August 28, 2011. Each person can have up to 5 entries. Please leave a separate Comment on this post for each entry:
