bracelet bag – brown wool, hot pink flower, + lace!

I saw this ad in one of the sunday paper fashion sections:

At £18, it’s well within my means for an impulse buy, but that’s not really the point, is it?? I was already making a jacket and skirt out of some gorgeous wool suiting fabric (photos of the jacket & skirt HERE!), so I made this bag out of scraps of fabric leftover from the suit (and the lining of the bag is scraps from the lining of the jacket!). I freehanded the pieces to make it match the magazine photo, but spruced it up with some wide white lace, hot pink stitched flower, and some sparkly beads.

I love it, and it’s big enough to be practical even though it fits on my wrist!
