My little dumpling bag.
Less of a rigid gaming purse, more of a floppy sack, but I'm fond of it nevertheless and intend to use it for carrying sewing supplies when I'm on the go. More of these are on the cards, perhaps as gift bags filled with goodies. Or, maybe next time, I'll adapt my pattern and turn it into a shifuku (a bag for carrying tea caddies) which I have Queenie to thank for bringing to my attention. I might even make an azuma bag, as this would give a greater surface area for trying out more shashiko.
You see, I am, and always have been, something of a bag lady. While other women obsess over shoes, my passion is for handbags – and leather gloves, (is there anything more chic than a beautiful bag and glove combo?). Whatever I choose to make, one thing is for sure, it will feature more of these little flowers – they're so simple and sweet to make.
