I found some pretty floral cotton lawn recently, and I cannot get enough of it. I love it and its Liberty-like glory. I made some needlebooks with it, and a tiny skirt, and this lightweight puff tote. I would love to own a Sessùn Piou bag, but for now, this will do.
It has ruffles aplenty. The image of baby bloomers comes to mind. I know.
It is lined with satin in the most delicious shade of mauvey pink. It is much more sturdy than it looks, thanks to the wonderfully thick sew-in interfacing I used. I find the size of it to be satisfying, as well. It's not too small, not too big.
I may tweak it here and there (handles -- shorter, interfaced, or perhaps made of some faux leather braided trim I have; fewer ruffles, larger ruffles), but I may make a couple more for the shop. Does that sound like a good idea?
