I've been working on a round bag idea and today I just finished putting the different elements together.
I finished the straps and both front and back sections.
I cut four large round pieces and two 3/4 moon pieces for the inside pockets' and two pieces of batting.
I used regular cotton fabric for this bag and I did free form stitching on the flowers and ferns. I added buttons for the centers of each flower and used embroidery thread to stitch the buttons on. I used fabric paint to paint the center surface of the flowers.
I will be assembling the bag today . I need to stich the edge of each circular piece together and then stitch the strap on using a slip stitch.
the red flowers in the front of the bags design is 3-d and stands up on the surface.
I'm going to put a simple cotton strap and Velcro closer for the bag.
