My market bag

Well it just kind of started out as a project.....I was doing the Plymouth Fantasy Naturale market bag(free pattern) As I worked on it, the project developed some kind of personality....something about the way the colors were working...I'm not exactly sure. One of our customers came in and we talked about the pattern. She had already finished hers and gave advice..."make the body of the bag shorter than the 15 inches it calls for....it stretches" she said. I decided to take her up on the advice and ended at 11 inches, following the rest of the pattern as written. I finished it and now....it is one of my favorite finished objects.<


The bag looks great! Can't wait to see it -- of course, you'll probably have it with you. Sigh!http://blog.rivercolors.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss

I love my plymouth free pattern bag, and imagine my surprise to see your made up in the same color I had chosen!

My dark & light blue are much more integrated, and I didn't get the waves of color you have. I am starting a second to give a friend as a gift.http://blog.rivercolors.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss
