A Quiet Safe Place

Updated: Mar 10

I am working on another bag tutorial. The floral appliqued bag. I have one example in combat colors and wanted to create another with different straps.

I wanted to work in soft tranquil colors

Soft pastel colored fabric scraps

I found some sewn crumb pieces that I had created in the past for the base of the bag

I also have a huge collection of sewn yoyos in almost all the colors of the rainbow and I found this selection in the pastel box.

My birthday is in January and a little girl, the daughter of the neighbours has a birthday 2 days before me and she invited me to celebrate with her. I decided to create a floral patchwork bag for her. Something tranquil for these times.

Which I use as one of the panels for the bag. I created 2 shoulder straps and now it can be used as a tote bag.

I love the softness of this bag with the pastel colors. Reminds of spring.
