Most times I make prototypes before cutting into "the good stuff."
I love playing with vintage textiles so the center panel is a piece of vintage tablecloth and the pink is osnaburg. I used a sweet vintage doily and a yo yo and button for the flower. I really like the flair shape of this bag.
But since my dearly departed fraternal twin aunts, Ethel and MJ, were not demure I used black and white polka dot and houndstooth corduroy. To reflect their personalities each got a pop of color. Corduroy or not, this is a simple and fun bag to make.
