Bag It









I've been sewing up some bags from the screenprints I did a few weeks ago and these are two of my favourites. The top one has a combination of three blue fabrics, the pale blue at the bottom, a rich blue along the top bar and then a dark blue for the straps. The print is the grosbeak I made up a while ago, although this one is a re cut of the original design.

The one below is the curlew from the museum drawings and I'm quite fond of it because it isn't a cute or sweet bird print like some of the others I've done, plus the red, black and denim is always one of my favourite combinations.

This weekend I'm doing Rose Street on Saturday and then the Mornington Racecourse Market on Sunday. So Saturday night is going to be a very quite early night as I will have to be up at about 6 to get there on time. I think that might be a rather large shock to my system.

Ohhh... I love the first one. Turquoise is one of my favourite colours! Will it be at Rose St on Saturday?

We're having a little Frankie forum meet up on Saturday cos one of the sydney girls is visiting Melbourne, and we're coming to visit the Rose St market... so we'll see you there too I suppose!

I love the curlew print.
Mornington Market is fantastic, especially if the weather is good. Fingers crossed for you!
