I go back to work tomorrow and though it is not Autumn I did want to have my Autumn bag already made. As many of my followers know I take an excessively long time to make a bag. Anyway, last spring Helena was my bag swap partner and she made me this blue spring bag. I knew instantly that I would want another. So , while she worked on publishing the pattern, I made my stitchery from the Acorn Hollow book and I made the binding and handle while I waited. Months later, Helena sent me the pattern and months later I finally made it a point to make this bag. As you can see, it is not exactly like Helena's because I had made the stitchery prior to the pattern being published so I had to alter it a bit. I made the flower on the top photo from Natalie Ross tutorial I love this pattern and I hope to make a Christmas bag like this too. Go check out Helena's blog. She sells the pattern in her store and it includes stitchery for all 4 seasons.
