Audrey's Country Crafts Bag Swap - Sent

Now that Alexandra (Daisies Days) has received her bag swap parcel I can now show you the bag I made.

As Alex said her favourite colour was I went on a mission to find some yummy fabric and found these two shades of purple. Inside the lining is a lovely lemon colour cotton.

And some felted flowers (which I bought from Paper-and-string even before I started blogging) so I thought they would be perfect to embellish the bag. Alex also likes buttons so there are some in the middle of the flowers.

And then I thought I would have a go at a felt purse so after a couple of hours of sketching and hand sewing this is what I came up with. There is a little diamante in the centre of the flower.....couldn't resist a little bit of sparkle :)
Pop over to Daisie Days to have a look at the other goodies I put in her parcel. One swap down 2 to go...... I LOVE SWAPS!!! :)
