Just for me......what BLISS!!




This year I've decided to try and make myself a few things and this bag is one of the things I've been wanting to make for ages so yesterday I dived into my Bliss stash and created it.I wanted it to be one of a kind and I think I did that using as many diferent pieces of my bliss fabric :)

What do you think?? I have some pretty dark pink buttons I bought for the bag to attatch to the bottom of the handles but I'm not sure if that will make it too much....your opinion would be appreciated.

Let's just say this bag has already been out shopping with me today and it's fantastic to use with four outside pockets and the two I added inside the bag....I think I have a pocket fetish lol.

It's lovely Barb - I adore Bliss too - I think the butons would look great but it also looks just fine without them. Hugs - Fee X

Use the buttons! It looks great without, but I do have a bit of a button thing, so my vote is for buttons whenever you can!

Bliss is such nice fabric. Nice to make something just for your self some times. Buttons would be very nice.

Barb said...

Your bag is just adorable and so glad you made something just for you!!!

I love what you've done with your Bliss....pure Bliss! I'm thinking there's enough pattern without the added buttons but without seeing them it's hard to say!!!! (am I a fence sitter or what!) Good to see you spoiling yourself too!

Clever gal! One can never have too many pockets in a bag. Looks fantastic Barb.

Wendy said...

what do I think? I think it's gorgeous! Buttons or not, you'd be hard pushed to ruin it!! I can just imagine a use for those outer pockets... I so need some Bliss!

Robyn said...

I don't think a bag can have too many pockets as you always find something to put in them!

Hey Barb! I totally LOVE this bag! Very blissfull! Bliss is my favourite fabric at the moment, I have a quilt kit in it, and a FQ bundle of flannel.
