This Is . . . My Favourite Accessory...


This is a bag I made recently in a class at The Kimono House in Melbourne. The class was run by the lovely Nicole of Nicole Mallalieu Designs. who was incredibly patient and managed to keep us all on track. At the end of the day I was amazed I had created such a beautiful satchel.

The subject for this weeks "This is..." was suggested by One Red Robin. Sorry I didn't include a picture of me with thw bag, but the photography and flash into the mirror caused me all sorts of problems - in addition to that, it was a really bad hair day, so this is will just have to do.
The "This is..." meme started with the very creative Angela of Three Buttons fame.

Hey, the best thing about the interpretation of this meme is it's just that, it can be what ever we want it to be! I love your bag too, great fabric and finish..sounds like a great class!

Gorgeous bag! You're so lucky being able to take a class with Nikki, I love her patterns, but being in Japan, it's a little too far for a personal tutorial... Luckily, she's very patient via email as well ;)

Ohhh, I have a hat made by Nicole, that one of my besties gave me one birthday... It's an absolute classic!
I love your bag... it's reminding me how much I want a new handbag myself. I should follow your lead and make one....

You've made my day, Jacinta! I just found your blog. Thank you for kind words.

It's great to see your lovely bag again - and I'm SO GLAD it's your favourite accessory. You really did a fantastic job with it, and the button trim finishes it off beautifully.
