Well, here it is the last day of February and I have not shown you my February Bag of the Month yet. I actually completed it last week but have been busy testing a couple of bags and fulfilling orders that I haven't had a chance to post it yet. I thought I better do it today so that you knew I actually completed it in the month of February. I don't want to get behind. The Hyacinth Bag is the second of six bag patterns that arrive on the 1st of the month for 6 months. This is the 2nd year for it and this bag was designed by Sara of Sew Sweetness.
I receive a lot of discontinued samples of upholstery fabric from a local furniture store and I thought this bag would be cute if I made it in a solid color and highlighted one of those samples on the flap. Those of you that follow me regularly realize I rarely use blue. I don't know why that it. Well, that was the color I chose this time and I think it really set the flap off. (I rarely use solid colors, too, except in linings sometimes).
Under the flap is a zippered pocket and 3 card pockets so you can reach a few key items easily. The flap closes with a magnetic snap. (Looks like I better iron it again!)
The back of the bag has a zippered pocket
A new pattern arrives tomorrow morning. I just wanted to show you that I am ready for it.
