Seagreen Vintage Inspired Floral For Katherine

When I took this bag down to the shop,  my lovely friend, Katherine,  took one look at it and had to have it!  Thank you, thank you Katherine!

Making purses is like writing a song.  My brother in law who owns a recording studio calls most of the songs written --"fillers"--he says only a few really really good songs are written each year.  This bag is not a "filler". I fell in love with this wonderful shade of blue--or is it green fabric-- filled with roses and blue hydrangeas--seagreen is what it's formally named.  I love the vintage buttons on the outside and the two outside pockets lined in brown feux suede.  The closing zipper is a vintage zipper, so as far as zippers go, I really liked this one--it's brown too.  The inside is a seafoam silk blend fabric with offwhite and caramel colored stripes.  I love this fabric, it was wonderfully soft and light--a delight for sewing!

I bid "adieu" to this lovely creation and hope that Katherine enjoys it for a very long time!
