Oh hello, little mushrooms! This is my finished piece for the upcoming BurdaStyle sewing book. They asked me to design and sew a purse/bag, so here it is... I'd never really made a purse before, so this was a new challenge, and I'm actually pretty happy with the way that it came out. I was provided a basic pattern from Burda, but then I changed it to make it more "me" -- I added a front pocket, embroidered on it, and moved the tassels from the front of the bag to the sides. Amanita Bag is on its way to New York City right now... very exciting! I'll keep everyone posted on the BurdaStyle book; it's scheduled for release Fall 2011!
