Quilted Circles Shoulderbag

My niece is turning 18 next week and I wanted to make something spectacular for her birthday. She loves handbags. She's also into the hippie vibe and the color purple. With a little help from the gals at Strawberry Patches, this is what I came up with:

The pattern is the Quilted Circles Shoulderbag from One Yard Wonders. The main bag fabric is Millefiore by Kaffe Fasset

Instead of circles, I fussy cut the flowers from Kaffe Fassett's Big Blooms, then raw-edge appliqued them to both the front and back of the bag. The flowers help to bring out more of the purple in the Millefiore fabric.

I hope she likes it.

Happy Birthday Erin!
