A bag begins



I took some photos from the beginning of the idea for a bag all the way to through the process. I chose moss green wool this time and decorated it with beautiful flowers.

I get my inspiration from the books, nature, magazines - and the finished product sometimes resembles the ideas, most of the time not. Somehow it seems that the flowers are taking over the little bees and birdies but we´ll see.

Soon I am off to funfair with my fantastic goddaughters and that should be not only great fun but also give me some inspiration too. I cannot (will not, don´t want to) take any rides at the gadgets but I´ll be enjoying the happy faces. And some sun, finally!

Enjoy your week!

I love your green wool bag - the flower flap is so pretty. Do you keep an inspiration journal too and jot things down as they occur to you?

I'm with you on the rides - I can't take roller coasters at all. The teacup ride is more my speed.

Thank you again for your nice words - and I love the bag too. I put it up for sale but I seriously think of keeping it myself :) And yes, I keep an inspiration journal: I cut the pictures of the magazines and cards, calendars etc.

The fun fair was great! My brave sis took a ride on the big wheel while I was safe&secure on the ground :)

Thank you, Elizabeth! It´s great to have you visit me, and I´ll be sure to come to enjoy (read: envy almost) all your vintage finds again!

Many sunny greeting from Finland!

This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
