Sanctuary bag.......


This pattern is the Flea Market Bag - Grand Revival Pattern by Tanya Whelan
Perfect spring bag..........

When I saw this piece of heavier weight fabric from one of my favourite lines Sanctaury by 3 Sisters for Moda I had to buy it and even better it was 1/2 price (and extra wide)................then to decide on a pattern and the lining fabric. Lining is Look and Learn by American Jane for Moda. Went perfectly..........


love this grevillea...........

sometimes you just don't see everything in a photo when you take it until just now I was looking at this photo and found a snail on a leaf...........nice surprise when I was trying to get the hydrangea so I cropped it a bit........



Take care til next time Chookyblue..............

  1. Very nice bag. I have just severely pruned a shrub that was a veritable feast & nursery for snails!! I hope they dont invade my lettuces instead...

    Hydrangea's are my favorite ( and the snail by the looks) But I dont deem to be able to grow them. Hope one day

  7. Really like the bag - especially the polka dot lining. I love hydrangeas but it's fall here - have to wait until next spring until I can enjoy them again.

  17. Really beautiful flowers. We do have many flowers and foliage in Sri Lanka but not so many of such soft shades!

    I have done a similar bag as a christmas pressie!
