A strawberry inspiration...

Yesterday I told you that I was inspired to make a new bag for my Etsy shop...and for the craft fair that I will be participating in October...well...I was gardening and cleaning out the area around all the strawberries in our back yard...
And noticing how pretty they look with all the flowers blooming...did I mention that the birds planted all of these lovelies for me?? Anyway...I got to thinking...I know that can be dangerous...but anyway...



I made this!

You know how much I like drawing and working with wool...


And buttons...3 of them on this bag...I love how that silver one fits perfectly inside the red one!



The back needed a pocket...and more strawberries...



Here's a close up of the pocket...



The inside has plenty of pockets too...


This one was so fun to make...


Enjoy the day, my friends! I hope you find something fun to do yourself today!!

Oh Linda, that bag is absolutely lovely! You do the most beautiful applique with wool on your bags. Those strawberries are perfect...they look almost good enough to eat! That bag won't last long in your show!

XOXO,
