Oops!

I realised to my horror that I haven’t updated this page in aaages, and I have four (yes, four!) new Onbags to put on….As I have so many, I’m just going to lump them all together in one big post, full of Onbaggy goodness 😉

The first gorgeous Onbag to share with you is the Buddha bag 🙂

werrw

The front flap is made out of buddha fabric

This Onbag has classic red taffeta in the lining. There was only one yard of buddha fabric left at La Chakra, so we had to stretch it out 😉 It stetched as far as the front flap, all the pockets and onto the zones – which I thought was pretty good!

Next up on the catwalk is a Musical Onbag.

First, the inside....so that you can see the lovely musical notes on the fabric :)

The front pocket has a stripe of print fabric across it to make it stand out ;)

Next, the front pocket with it’s snazzy stripe of print fabric 😉

And lastly, the Onbag worn back-pack style!

What you can’t see clearly from this photo is that all the children in the family have their initial monogrammed in various places on this Onbag.  Now, that should have been an easy thing to do – but my new embroidery machine was super-stubborn, and nearly got kicked out of the window when it refused to do as it was asked :LOL: Finally, after much blood, sweat and tears, we got there and I was really pleased by the overall effect 🙂

The final Onbag in this post is another one that I have embroidered 🙂

It has taken me a long time to get going with the machine embroidery and I will tell you a little more about that in the next post (along with a few pics of embroideries that I have done 😉 )

But after a few weeks, perseverance finally paid off, and I was able to download this lovely rainbow swallow design from Urban threads, and embroider it on the front flap of the bag. What do you think? I LOVE it myself 😉

And here is a close-up of the swallow, just in case you couldn’t see it clearly enough on the last picture 😉
