Spring is in the Bag

It's time for me to put away the drab and carry a perky new bag.

I had fun choosing fabrics for this bright and cheery bag. 
Because the colors show more than the fabric print, this is a great way to use fabrics in a different way.  Will you choose a dramatic print, a hand-dyed solid, a subtle print or a combination of all three?

The print can add a lot of variety depending on how the fabric was cut.

A combination of three green fabrics creates a softer charm.

The solid fabric became more dramatic with the addition of a green yarn braided in.

Come on Spring. Is this what you have been waiting for?  I'm ready!

Techniques for for this bag and similar braided bags can be found in my book 
"Braidcraft, Designer Bags and Totes" 
and can be purchased through Herrschners, Inc.
