Many apologies for the rubbish photo….

….but at least the Onbag itself is very beautiful πŸ™‚

This is a classic Onbag made out of purple cord, paired with the delightful Amy Butler fabric “Alchemy”

The Alchemy fabric is an unusual shade of jade/turquoise, and is reminiscent of a vintage fabric with it’s large butterflies and the green and pink colour combination on their wings.

I have had to hurry this bag along so that it can go away on it’s holidays on the 6th, so I hope that it arrives at it’s new home in plenty of time and that it remembers to send me a postcard :LOL:

There is also another bag underway for this Mama, but I am keeping it under wraps for the moment…..you’ll have to come back in a few weeks to see that one πŸ˜‰

A Pretty Purple Paisley Onbag!

I love colours, but am quite unusual in that my favourite colour changes fairly often. My husband tells me that I am fickle – but there are so many gorgeous colours, why confine myself to just one :LOL:

For the past couple of years, I have loved green best of all – especially the fresh lime-green colour of the leaves as they poke out of the chilly soil in the Spring.

Recently, however,Β  my colour-based fickleness has returned :LOL: and purple has become my new favourite!

So I have been really excited to sew another Onbag set in this lovely rich purple cord πŸ™‚

The applique on the front of this Onbag is inspired by the paisley pattern on the fabric....

A Forest of Onbags!

I have used this title before I think…..( I bet that you didn’t notice LOL) but the fabric was completely different that time.

There are lots of trees on this Onbag set, but this time they are all appliqued on, and it took me a looonnng time to get all the fiddly little branches just right πŸ˜‰Β  Poor Eve-Marie has been waiting very patiently, as I even had to order in another foot for my sewing machine, just so that I could do her idea justiceΒ  πŸ˜‰

The colours all remind me of the Autumn :)

Skulls galore!

This Onbag Classic is made out of black sanded twill and ‘mini claveras’ in turquoise by Alexander Henry.

Skull onbags are often referred to as marmite bags- because you either love it or hate it – there is no inbetween :LOL:

Well……… I definitely LOVE this one!Β  And I hope that Sarah will too πŸ˜‰

Elephants with buttons!

This lovely Onbag Baby has been thought about and planned for a long time – just to make sure that everything about it is just right.!

It is made of dyed aubergine cord, paired with a quirky elephant print and splashes of Amitola wrap on the front flap and inner pocket πŸ™‚

Together with this Onbag BabyΒ  there are three matching zones, each of which is slightly different to the others πŸ˜‰

My first ‘nude’ Purple Onbag!

I bought some purple cord a little while ago, and have been desparate to use it πŸ™‚ I must confess that I have cut a few bits off to use on my own projects, such as my kindle cover, but the majority of the fabric bolt has been waiting patiently under my bed.

It has come out from under the bed a couple of times to be dyed and transformed into aΒ  lovely, rich aubergine, but has never yet been seen ‘nude’ as it were LOL

So when I got an order in to make a purple bag I was very excited! And here it is….

The flap of the bag and both side pockets have decorative strips of fabric along them too πŸ˜‰
