A New Summer Bag!
I have been hanging on to this Ruby Star Spring fabric by Melody Miller for quite some time. It's a cotton/linen blend and I thought it would be perfect for a bag. I paired it up with two Essex linens - Sand and Putty. I'm always a bit intimidated to work with linen because of all the shifting but the Essex linens are really nice and behave (most of the time).
The pattern was great to follow, even for those of us that are 3-dimensionally challenged. ;) Here's a view of the other side of the bag.
I used another Ruby Star Spring print on the inside and you can see there is also an magnetic snap enclosure.
Can't wait to take this bag out on the town!
