Make and repeat







Yet another handbag finished.

This isn't actually part of the Vintage Girly collection - I'm just whipping up lots of different colours and shapes and sizes for the upcoming markets.


I've been drawn to lots of different shades of green lately. I'm finding it quite strange as I've never ever liked green before. Maybe it's the soothing calming nature of green that's drawing me in.... maybe I need some soothing and calming before the craziness of the Christmas market season kicks into full gear!

Traditionally a red girl, I'm into green at the moement too. Like the fabric combo on your bag. That is a lot of markets - will hopefully see you in Daylesford!

The shape is great. Love the way you have added the pleats. Green is a bit like yellow - it helps to enliven things. Cherrie

Lots of markets to keep you busy! I think you should sell that bag to me instead of keeping it for market stock, I love those greens!!

That is quite a list of markets Cam! Love the green bag - I seem to be drawn more to green and yellow lately too!

Cindy said...

What a sweet bag design - wish i could just 'whip up' a bag...

ChallenCharms said...

Wow looks like you'll be busy for some time to come with all those markets.

The Creative Beast said...

ahhh, the healing properties of green, not to mention it symbolizes PROSPERITY, which you are obviously working toward with all those markets you are participating in!

"GO CurlyPops, GO CurlyPops, GO CurlyPops"!! WOOT - WOOT!! ;)

BTW: love the mix of hue and pattern here =-)

Jennifer Rose said...

You're going to be a busy bee! I'll have to try and pop into the Northcote one sometime :-)

Tania said...

Holy Moly! Will you be able to sleep between now and Christmas? See you on the 26th...

Vic said...

I quite like that green bag also - which IS odd because green, well, it's never really tickled my fancy.
I made a button bracelet last week for a friend, and it was green, and it looked quite nice when it was done... so, I may be adventuring further into green territority soon....!

Good luck for all your markets - WOW - how many clones do you have, exactly...?!

Mookah said...

How am I supposed to get to any of those markets when i'm always at markets myself?

Betty Jo said...

We are a bit matchy matchy with our posts today. See you tomorrow, and at least two of those market thingies.
