Hello!! And welcome to my first blog post!!

I'm glad you are here!!

I'm excited to share with you a mid sized square bottomed bag I sewed up.

I used some of my all time favorite fabrics from Tim Holtz's Eclectic Elements line. 

These fabrics are from his Correspondence Collection. Which is the perfect mix of vintage Air Mail.

Thanks for stopping by!!  

Here is the full bag.
It measures approximately 9 1/2 inches tall by 8 1/2 inches wide. The bottom is 3 inches wide.
The handles drop about 10.5 inches.  


The red geometric background makes my heart pitter pat. Especially paired with that air mail stripe. 



I used a decorative stitch on my sewing machine to add a little bit of flair to the dress. 


I used vintage postage stamps and an air mail label. The numbers on the stamps just happen to be my birthday :)

I kept the stitching on the main body of the bag clean and simple. But had to have a bit of messy stitching and strings. So I left the strings from the dress construction hanging loose!! 



The hardware from Tim's Eclectic Elements line is fantastic!! The perfect vintage patina.


I love this blue graph design, It reminds me of the inside of an envelope.
