Little Yellow Bag


Hi Friends! Is it hot? It is here! and busy, high summer season. But I managed to squeeze few moments to finish a little bag …

This is a small, simple shoulder bag. Strap is adjustable with a knot …

Fabric is a canvas style with fun print and it’s from Ikea.

On the other side the ric rac covers the seam so the print continues nicely all around the bag.

Lining is full of juicy oranges!

This time my favourite juice is with berries …

From the local mini market I bought crackers which happened to be really good! With cinnamon and sugar and the yellow is with corn. The cinnamon cracker is like the crackers we used to have at home when I was small.

I’m happily surprised that I have had been sewing a lot. Secret project is finished and I’m looking for to show it to you. I have continued the ‘Scandic Scene’ quilt which is now on my design wall. Hope to finish the top these days because I’m already making plans for a new quilt and soon the design wall has to be empty for that new project.

I spot this fun view through the mirror in the shop! Maria has Greek statues front of her shop.

Thank you for reading my blog and thank you for the sweet comments you write! I wish you wonderful August and happy sewings!

  1. Very nice… and a real summerly fabric!

  2. Lovely as always!!!!! Sunny and beautiful here after some VERY hot/humid days. Hugs comin’ at ya. 😍

  3. What a fun purse! you always find the most unique fabrics to use in your projects. Looking forward to seeing your secret stuff. It is hot and humid here too. We are not used to humid, so we are a bit cranky, but the evenings are usually cool. Hugs from suu y So Cal. Sonja

  4. Teje, what a great purse–I love that a simple design can be so adorable–and your fabric makes this a terrifically unique bag! Ric rac!! When I was younger–in the 50’s and 60’s!–I think I put ric rac on everything. It is such a fun finish. Your yellow corn cracker looks exactly like American onion rings (coated in batter and deep fried!)–and who doesn’t love cinnamon sugar! Have a wonderful August, too–and tell Hanna, Nero and Nelli to find some shade!!

  5. It’s so cheerful and happy! I love your oranges fabric on the inside, too. It’s been a while, so I’m saying hello here, too!

  6. A little but a great bag! The fabrics are just perfect – they reflect the summer in Greece. x Barbora

  8. Very nice bag. It is always nice when you find a little treat that reminds you of your childhood.

  9. Lovely bag. So glad you are finding opportunities to sew even in the heat of the holiday season. Hope your shop is drawing lots of interest and sales. Summer stayed for a week in the UK and then left!
