Taupe Roses Fashion Bag

When I stock up on fabrics I tend to gravitate to rose prints. They seem to be popular as there are a multitude of rose-themed fabrics out there to choose from, so I always have to remind myself not to buy up the entire range ;-)
Nevertheless, one or two rosy prints always sneak in to my shopping bag along with unusual, graphic and strong prints that I think might look good made into bags. I recently finished another fashion bag using a very large rose print in a mellow taupe on a soft blue background, which doesn't show particularly well in the photo. You just have to trust me that this print really is lovely :) I was lucky to find a polka dot fabric that matched the roses perfectly. This I used to embellish and strengthen the corners as well as the lining. I sourced a pair of slim handles in a cognac brown which I think go well with the two main colours. These I stitched on by hand which, considering the solidity of the front and back panel, was quite a challenge!

  4. That purse is gorgeous! The colorings go perfectly together...don't you love it when you find matching fabrics and accessories?!

    Sewing those by hand must have hurt...I know leather or heavy demin does!

    Hope Spring is treating you well and all is good!

  11. I used to teach Fashion Design (sewing) to high school students. I have no idea how you keep up with your work and your blog. I can tell how precise you are from the make up bag I have from you. These fashion bags are so, so pretty! You are so talented.

  19. Hi Duni,
    This one looks great. Even in picture, I can tell the excellent design and workmanship that you've put towards in creating this bag.

    Oh, how I wish the mailing expense is not exuberant, I'd be buying lots of your bags and purses. This one including.

  20. This is amazing craftsmanship. Lovely bag! I'm going to follow you. I sell designer handbags, but these are really impressive and nice homemade bags. I've never seen anyone make professional looking handbags themselves before.
