Denim Notions Bag - Take 2

Here are some better pictures of my entry for the Naughty Notions Bag Challlenge by Rikka of Ricochet and Away and Keren of Sew la Vie blogs.

This one I actually made for myself.
I don't make many bags for myself. I make about one a season. If it turns out the way  I wanted, I keep it. If it's not, I give it away and make another one. If that's a hit, I usually carry it around for about a year -at least.

That's why I embellished it with many of my stashed away notion keepsakes.

And that's why there are pockets just about everywhere -though I usually have more on a larger bag.
 There's three deep pockets on the outside and three flat ones on the inside.

The back is left much plainer, though I couldn't resist some shabby vintage material scraps and a ribbon from my stash doubling as key-ring.
The flower is one of my black and white organza flower brooches and it's detachable.

And a couple of close ups.

All the challenge entries are here, where you can also vote for your favourite bag.


  1. It's awesome! Very eclectic and original. I love how it looks like an envelope with lots of postage stamps :-)
