Yesterday I decided to sew just for me. It had been a while since I made something just because I wanted to make it... and not because of a deadline, contract or Quilt Market. I'm not complaining... I love what I do... but it was nice to just sew yesterday!
The result... my new Lily Bag!
This is the front of the bag. I used laminates for the base and regular cottons for the band & handles.

Fabric is Prince Charming by Tula Pink
This is the back of the bag.
The white is regular cotton & the navy prints are laminates.
Here is a close up of the frog on the back. I fussy cut the pieces so that he would be featured.
A closeup of the front. The pleats turned out well in the laminates & don't take away from the frog at all.
Another closeup of the front showing how I also fussy cut the frog.
Here is the bag laying down. I used the coral on the inside & outside bands.
I didn't have a lot of Prince Charming to work with... so I decided to use Neptune for the lining. It worked perfectly!!
I hope you love my new favorite bag as much as I do!!
