Katie's Boho Gatherings bag in progress

I didn't do much all day....cleaned a bit, floated a while, dyed some lace and trim, watched the Talk, and played a game on Facebook for a little while, yes, I joined a garden game and it is fun but I don't live on it like I did playing 6 games.
After DH got home and we ate, I headed up stairs to figure out what I would do for Katie's Boho bag. The lace and trim I dyed was pale pink with a bit of ecru. Katie loves pink and I looked above my cutting table and saw the perfect flap. I felted a pink piece last year and lost it for months. I hung it with the dyed laces hoping I would be inspired to use it on something. Well, the perfect home for it is on Katie's bag.
I will be embellishing the section under the flap with a butterfly, trims, etc then assemble it this evening and I am so happy that I get to mail Nic's and Katie's together. I hated the thought of them receiving a week apart.
Katie is a petite teenager so I made her bag a tiny bit smaller. Still plenty of room for gathering goodies though.
I almost fainted when I took the dyed trim and lace upstairs intending on digging through my fringe to hopefully find something to coordinate and discovering Tish had sent me the perfect tassel trim. It was serendipitous. Again, Thank you Tish :-) I'm off to assemble..have a great evening!


  1. Gorgeous! I especially like the trim that has the " bobbly " things hanging down every so often. It is around your center pc. with the girl.
