I made three items for my swap partner Brandi for the Fall/Halloween themed swap organised by Bonnie at Pink Stitches.
You have already seen the cute Halloween purse, so here is the Fall themed item - I have called it The Autumn bag.
I found this beautiful fabric, Co Co Chi by Kokka. After a bit of a browse on the internet, it seems that this fabric is kind of hard to get, I found it here. The colours are perfect for the Fall theme and I love the small details - the rabbits, birds and deer in amongst the trees.
I made up the pattern myself using a lot of the elements and techniques I learned when I made my first bag, the Tohoku tote. The trim fabric was a red cotton I had left over from making a Super Mario Brothers costume for my sister to wear to a fancy dress party!
To finish it off, I added a large faux tortoiseshell button I had in my huge op shop button stash.
I was really happy with how it turned out, and my swap partner Brandi said she really loves it! I have a fair bit of the Kokka fabric left. Any suggestions what I should make with it?
