Choosing the fabric for a bookbag for a customers Mom. She likes denim and mauve.
Laying out the design.
Piecing the bag together.
Sewn together with batting an backing and quilted.
Freida with the bag before the button.
My favorite (and last) part is picking the button. This button picks up on some of the greens and has the shimmer of the pink ( 1940’s dressing gown) fabric above the denim. (the denim is a pair of shorts that belonged to my mother) It also mimics the design in the batik fabric.
