Finished

Yes! Yes! I just finished my first "Dutch colours" bag! It was so much fun to make it, and to sort out all the right fabrics and ribbons. Also the way to develop the bag was exciting. Because I put details of my old sweater and old fabrics in the bag, it has become a very personal bag.

other connecting-piece with smal pocket made from the bottum of the sweater
I made a lining in the bag with two pockets. The great thing is, I only spend money on the linig fabric.

And now it's ready and waiting to be used.....And me, I'm busy, busy, busy making my next "Dutch colours" bag!
