Oh Laney! I Swoon over you!

I decided to revive my blog - not that I have more time than before, no, I just have some new pretties to show! Last year, I was lucky enough to find Swoon Patterns, and I must say, I am loving them!!  Visit the page at - you won't be sorry!

This is the lovely Laney, and she's a hobo style bag. I added a small flap and snap closure - so she's not reversible as the pattern was written, but I love her just as she is! I used a gorgeous fabric that a friend of mine gave to me, and a thick yellow cotton in the centre. I embroidered the flowers on the front and the single flower on the back, as I thought it lacked something with the plain yellow. I am really pleased with her, and I'm not sure how I will part with her. When I've made a few more beautiful bags, I will be listing them on Etsy!
