Miniature Handbag No:17

This one is a pattern I have used before but the style is a favourite of my Parchment Tutor -Marilyn Pybus. It is called the' Knitting Bag'.    It is on Marilyn's stand at the Sandown Show - in September - where all these bags will be displayed.  This one uses two pieces of parchment, one plain and one coloured. For the coloured one I have used Debbees Cd - Paper Flower Boutique.  It is a subtle backing paper of mainly yellows and soft greens.  It doesn't photograph that well but it does look delicate and pretty in the flesh.
The ribbon is already attached to the bag so that it can be hung from the Fotofall.  Sorry about that.  It is a fiddle to thread the ribbon through the glass beads I use as weights and I  didn't want to do it again.

One more to go but I haven't decided which one yet.  I think I ought to finish  with a bang and do a really complicated one - - -but then perhaps not!


  1. That is really pretty Carol.. I love all the bags you have been making.. would be hard pushed to pick a favourite... Good Luck with "going out with a bang!" Bet you can make a real WOW one to stun us all speechless!!!


  2. Another lovely bag Carol, I like the way the handles are done on this one. You're on the home straight now with only one more bag to go. What will you find to delight us all with next.

  3. Another fabulous work of art. I bet they will look fantastic on display at Sandown.

  4. Gorgeous as usual Carol, I like this shape. They will look fantastic displayed at Sandown, wish I could be there.
    Can't wait to see your 'final' one, I am sure it will be special
