Folksy Monthly Make - evening bag

I have recently finished an evening bag which I have made to join in on a monthly make with the craft selling site Folksy. Set up by TheFeltFairy.
This is to make me finish my own projects, as well as my 'normal' sewing jobs.

I really like the shape of this bag.
Its made with black satin. The flower on the front has a brooch fastening so that it can be removed and the two pieces can be used seperately.

The flower is made up with chiffon, organza ribbon, satin and diamante.
Its the first time I have made the design .
I really like it, which is unusual for me . I normally have an idea and it sits in a cupboard on a piece of paper without getting made, so it was great to actually see one in 'real life'.
I think it may be the first item in my folksy shop, however, it might need to be photographed a bit better !! My photographty as per usual is not showing it at its best x
Hope you like it


  1. I think it's a beautiful bag..I really like the way you can 'dress it up' or 'dress it down' with the removable brooch...

  2. A great first make, it is lovely.
