pretty petal dilly bag

You guys know Lauren Wright, right?  She's the name behind @mollyandmama (or Molly and Mama) and is responsible for some of THE prettiest images of the prettiest things on the internet.  Seriously.

When she invited me to join her book tour for Pretty Handmades, YES PLEASE was my answer. :) (We share the same obsession with pink, btw.)


I chose this absolutely adorable drawstring bag.  Now you may be surprised that I didn't use pink fabric.  I'm kind of suprised myself.  When I first flooked through this beautiful book, I was in heaven with all the pink-ness of it all.  But then I thought maybe I should be a little unpredictable, ya know? And I also thought that the sample in the book is already half pink so maybe you'd like to see it in a different colour.  So I pulled a few yellows and a white from First Romance and ... voila! Cute cute cute, isn't it?

Plus I made it in an afternoon.

There are many more lovely things to see from this book.  Pop over to Lauren's blog to find links to all the other blogs on this tour.  And then be inspired. :)

Kristyne, your Pretty Petal Dilly Bag is so fresh and fun in all its sunshiny goodness. Using the lemon prints from your fabric range was an inspired idea. Thank you for creating such a pretty piece for the blog tour, and for your kind words. I'm honoured you were able to join us! xx
