Fall Bag

Sorry the picture is so dark. Photography is not my thing. I like it when there is a sunny day to take the picture outside, the lighting is better on a nice day. It's been gray and rainy here for the last week. The forecast is for more of the same....so I'll do my best to get a decent picture.

I made this bag in one day using 2 charm packs from Moda's Serendipity by Sandy Gervais. The fabric colours are rich browns, rust, green, purple and beige. This will make a really nice fall bag to carry my stitchery or punchneedle projects to meeting. The pattern is from This & That called Flower Patch, I didn't add the applique flower to the front, I didn't think the bag needed it. If you haven't tried this line of patterns I would really recommend them. Her instructions are easy and straight forward, I found this bag easy to make....and ladies there is no zipper. This bag will be a store sample before I can use it for my goodies.
