We can't seem to get enough green here this week. I might as well continue the theme with a little shoe and handbag love. Unlike Heidi Klum, I like things "matchy-matchy" when it comes to shoes and bags (or shirts and socks). The bag is my August/September submission to the Get Your Craft On Flickr pool. It was made using a Joel Dewberry print and Amy Butler's Frenchy bag pattern. August's rule was "use what you have" (fabric) and "birds" was September. I really love this pattern; the shoulder bag is a great size so I end up taking it everywhere (it's actually in need of a little wash at the moment). At Tory's suggestion (have you seen her bag?) I subdivided the two interior pockets for a total of five compartments. I find having more pocket real estate makes the bag much more functional (not to mention less floppy so it holds its shape better). I had grand plans to make one for a certain someone's birthday this week, alas I have run out of time. Perhaps for Christmas...
