It's A Saturday Sharing Day on Sunday.......LOL
Just as I decided to join Thearica's It's A Saturday Sharing Day my Internet refused to work! So now I will show you what I wanted to share yesterday. I have been working on a Crazy Quilt block that has to become the front of a bag.
A bit of a challenge, making the crazy quilted front isn't a problem but I never made a bag before! I always see beautiful examples of CQ bags on the Internet, so I wanted to give it a try also. I only wonder when I can use it in a climate with a lot of rain like here in Holland....Here a picture of the front:
I only still have to add a spider in the spider web, but can't find the right beads for it at this moment....
Now I have to decide what fabric to use for the bag, I have an old dark brown velvet jacket or an old jeans to cut up for  it, maybe I can use both?????
Also have to find a pattern for a suitable bag!

This is absolutely beautiful. I have been making purses for years, but recently I have been following a blog that is giving the best purse making instruction I have ever read. I learn something new with each one of her posts. You may want to check it out...a piece like you have created here deserves a well made bag. http://www.ikatbag.com/

So beautiful! I like all the laces in your block. I think could be a great contrast with jeans fabrics.
