Bags in Bloom Book
Now when I look through all of those little bits left over from other projects I think oh this will make a pretty flower center. Those odd stray buttons too pretty to toss now will see the light of day..... someday. Ah maybe a few xmas present bags. I long to re-cycle some old denim and this seems like a great project for it.
Bags in Bloom by Susan Cariello is very inspiring and contains a lot of fun and elegant stitching projects.
"A perfect bag for every occasion, in every season! Each season has its own palette of floral colors, from vivid poppies to hardy wildflowers, from autumn leaves to winter roses-and now you can have a bag to match every outfit in every season. In Bags In Bloom , with just 6 simple patterns and 12 easy embroidery stitches, you’ll learn how to make 20 different purse designs.
