Slowly, slowly

After a very slow start to this week, due to the melancholia which set in because of the terrible tragedy being enacted in Victoria with the bushfires, the creative juices are finally beginning to flow. This bag is for a friend's sister who has her own distresses to deal with.
The floral fabric is thrifted from the Gold Coast (thanks again Lana!!) and the purple was on special in Ikea, Sydney. I have free machine embroidered the yoke for an extra touch. The lass is a large girl and wanted to be able to use the bag across her body or else hanging on the handles of her sons stroller. I hope she likes it!


  1. I'm sure she will like the bag, it's lovely!
    ps. the stains came out perfectly

  2. It's lovely! Thank you for explaining that little saying to me! It was actually driving me crazy!!!! :)

  4. I can't even imagine what travesty some are facing with these fires.

    Your bag is so vibrant and beautiful with such vivid colors. A harmonious blend in such a melancholy time.

  5. Beautiful bag! Such beautiful colors.
    I'm sure it will bring a smile to her face.

    My thoughts are with all those affected by the devastating fires.
    Such a tragedy.
