Fruit Ladies Bag
My latest creation is this cute bag, inspired by the Fruit Ladies fabric by Elizabeth's Studio. The motifs are fun, the ladies are made from fruit and they are at the beach. There are colorful beach towels and the fruit is brightly colored. It makes me smile to look at the fabrics. The diagonal lines in the fabric determined the shape of the bag, so that I could show off the pictures of the ladies to the best advantage. I put pockets around the inside and one on the outside, between the straps. I put a zipper at the opening to keep everything safe inside. The whole thing was interfaced with Decor-Bond, so it will hold its shape very well. Visit my shop, Bag & Baggage on Etsy, if you are interested in purchasing the bag or pattern.
