Purple Passion Margo Bag

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.
 And inside are some batiks.  I LOVE this bag -- it is my favorite of all the ones I've made so far.  It's very difficult to give it up.  And I'm not really even a "purple person."

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...
