To this with a little lace, a few buttons and some ribbon.
Getting from one bag to the other was a joy as I was working with such beautiful materials.
I chose one of the new cotton laces:
50mm Cotton Lace Natural x 1 metre
Some of the baby pink buttons:
Baby Pink Mixed Buttons for sewing and craft, 50g
Some ivory and Sherbet 16mm satin:
16mm satins here
Some 3mm satin
Of course I also used one of the pink bags.
Small jute shopper
The pictures below are fairly self explanatory:
Start by putting a strip of double sided tape across the top of the bag. About a third of the way down is good.
Now sew on the buttons, leave room to add the rose.
If you look at the finished bag, I also decided that a few dangly bits would look good so I tied buttons to the middle of about 5 pieces of 3mm ribbon and then sewed them to the bag before I sewed on the rose.
I hope that you have enjoyed this as much as I have. In fact, I think that I like this so much, I will use it rather than keeping it as a demo piece for the shows.
