I painted a bag like this one for my June Package Pal…since then I have wanted one myself! Hate it when that happens. I was in my sewing room this past weekend and was finishing up some projects and saw this scrap of canvas drop cloth left over from this project.
I made a simple bag, one handle from side to side, it is double thickness and turned out really good! I made it to go to the Farmers Market, it is a cross body style bag, so it will be perfect for that.
I free hand drew and painted the feathers…I know they don’t look like a classic peacock feather, but I love them!
This is the back, I painted one feather on the back. I also used a strip of grosgrain ribbon on the strap to hide the seam, so it looks like the strap has no seam at all!
I am linking to these great parties!
