Magical Mitre Bag - March 2011
I bought the kit from the Button Angel stand at the NEC, Nov 2010. The fabric for the middle of the panels was very autumnal/flowery. I bought Japanese Chrysanthemum fabric,with a gold metallic outline. It suits the bag design really well.
I used buttons to embellish the heart-shaped zip pull.
I did add a pocket inside but it really isn't deep enough to be practical. It will need a rethink on future models.
I have been asked to make a bright green mitre bag - for Sarah. (Work in progress.) The green fabric that I used has an element of linen in it. It is not as substainial as the brown fabric that I used in the first version.
