Its all about the Bag

One of the classes I took last November at Silver Bella was a canvas bag class called "Prada Smada" we took a canvas bag from Michael's and painted it , stamped on it and added lots of vintage lace , ribbons buttons and other goodies...I really wasn't sure what to bring for this class as we were to bring some fabric and trim for our bags. I picked some dark colors of black , green and brick red...of course these were not the colors of paint which where provided to us they were pinks, blues and creams..DUH!!! I really had no idea, this was my first time to Silver Bella and now I know everything is PINK!!!!!! I decided to try it again since I really liked the idea..so when my friend Karen's b-day was here I just knew she would love a PINK bag! This first one I made just for her, I painted pink and cream stripes on the bag then stamped with french writing stamp.




I added the pocket with Vintage lace and buttons and made a cute ruffle for around the top. I finished it off with a flower old lace and ribbon hanging down and a beautiful vintage pin in the center of the flower. She loved it and screamed when she opened it up!


Then I decided since I like her bag so much that I simply must have one for me..this a picture of my bag. I made the ruffle around the top of the bag with burlap..love it...and put this lovely Vintage pin I found on the pocket (I was saving this pin for something special) Don't just love to hoard the GOOD STUFF!
