I needed to make something for a valued client of my husband's and the only thing I really know about her is that she likes purple.
So I dug through my stash and found this strip set of purple fabrics that I made for a bag I made for myself.
I remember at the time I was slightly appalled at the vast quantity of purple in my stash -- that's a lot of purple.
But I really like the way that all these purples work together so I made this bag with my trusty Margo pattern from Lazy Girl Designs.
Here is the front -- that strip in the center is from some of my own shibori-dyed fabric. There are a number of my own hand-dyes in this.
I decided that the strips looked best going sideways on the back.
A better shot of my irises -- I noticed them blooming yesterday. It's so cold out this weekend. I think maybe they look a little bluer than usual...
