Time out from Christmas Sewing: A New Bag!






I started with this thrift store find.












Lovely, isn't it? You can't tell by the flash photo, but it is a nice wool and the red is truly red, not pink. And the blue is a teal. Anyway. . .

I used the Buttercup Bag pattern and ended up with a cute bag. I didn't have a magnetic closer, so I rigged up a ponytail elastic and a button. I actually like it because you can fit more inside closing it that way.

It's a little smaller than the size purse I usually carry, but it's a new purse and that's all good as far as I'm concerned. Nice and wintery made out of that wool, too.

Don't you just hate it when your photographs don't show the true colors! I know I'm bad about that. This bag is just too cute and I sew love the repurposefulness of it! You're way too clever by far on the closure!

Thanks for sharing this with us!
Blessings!
