le sac orange

i made this bag last december for a charity auction at a craft show and it was so popular that i had three requests to make more that same night. i finally finished filling the orders- what do you think? the orange fabric is a very nice "melange tweed" from maharam, which is actually an upholstery fabric but it really works for the purse, no?

the fabric i used for the sides was a robert kaufman print, i think. it just happened to match the orange perfectly.

the fabric flower is sewn on and embellished with a brushed gold button. this is a very happy purse! it's funny that i dreamed this up and put it together in about 48 hours and it turned out to be one of my more successful pieces. does that mean i do my best work under a deadline? perhaps. :)
