Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

More news from home!

I made this fun bag from this fun book.

Dresden Plate Bag

I used mostly Amy Butler prints with one Jennifer Paganelli…I also added some fun texture with the green upholstery weight fabric and some gray denim which is from a pair of Libby’s jeans.

This next pic is really for my sweet, home-sick girl (who says she checks here 10x a day for new news…no wonder my # of views has been on the increase) – Tripp is lying on some of the other sweet finds from this weekend’s estate sale.  That huge crocheted table cloth was about $5.

Tripp & the sweet finds!

  6. Ahh, look at that haha!, nahhh, I like yours way better!!!, the handles make this bag and I was too afraid to attempt them so I opted for the easier version, I wish I had made the proper ones, they look so much better, your stuff always has so much character :).. I will have to make another one and try out the braided handles, it is too nice not to…
    hugs from Jen xoxo

    (oohh, ps, I finally got some of the photos from my niece so will get Doug to help me scan them in this weekend and get the pics to you! Hope you can still do the necklaces :))
