I've had this one in mind for so long, and finally allowed myself time to sit down and make it. It contains a lot of love, stitching, buttons, appliques, trims & edges, and 8 different fabrics. Those fabrics include a Laura Ashley cotton print I love and my favorite gardening print fabric.

As I cut and sewed the patchwork fabric front together, I remembered all the curtains, pillows, and darling little dresses I made for my granddaughters (now grown), of which these pieces are remnants. I had such a wonderful time putting it together. I hope you'll like it, too. In addition to patching this front together, I've embellished it with sewn-on appliques I cut from the gardening print, with buttons, with fringed edges, grosgrain and satin ribbons and dress trims.

The bag measures 10" (25.4 cm) wide by 8 1/4" (21 cm) long. The shoulder strap adds just under 14" (35.6 cm) from the top of the strap to the top of the bag. It's lined with the same fabric the back of the bag is made of, and inside there's a 5 1/2" (14 cm) wide by 3 1/2" (8.9 cm) deep lined pocket made of the checked remnant used on the front of the bag. (Phone shown in pocket is not included in price.) For a little more structure, the bag is interlined as well as being lined.

The colors of the patchwork are mostly dusty pinks, greens, and creams with a nostalgic theme of florals, gardening and gardening sayings. The back and inside are made of a pink and blue floral on green background. I think it's truly darling and would look just as good hanging on a peg, doorknob or armoire front decorating your room as on your shoulder complementing your outfit.
