Celebrate Color


I love big bags. And I've been itching to make a new fall bag to go with a wallet I bought the other day using a sweet Groupon deal I stumbled across. So after Michelle bought a copy of my Wristlet pattern the other day, I went snooping around in her Etsy shop and found this pattern. It was love at first sight. Big slouchy bag meets big slouchy redhead. And to give me an extra push, I saw Rachel's post about the Celebrate Color project - FUN!

It didn't take me long to find the gloriously Fall-colored Echino Story print for the exterior, and I decided to pair it with some seasonally appropriate chocolate corduroy I picked up at Joann's. I love corduroy. It makes me think of my grandpa because he always called corduroy pants "whistle pants" :)

So here's to my favorite season of the year...to having a new home with a porch where I can set carved pumpkins and hand out candy to sticky little fingers...to holiday baking and apple cider...to crisp breezes and crunchy leaves under bike tires.

  5. Oh, I love it! The Echino cheater print in that colorway is one of my favorites. I've been hoarding a pretty big piece of it. Your use of corduroy with it is awesome!
