I needed a bigger bag/purse and had lot of fabric scraps, so I made a crazy quilt bag. Some of the fabrics are leftover scraps from other projects, some are recycled fabric pieces and some I have received in scrap fabric swap. It's embellished with embroidering, beads, buttons and other stuff.

Here's the bag.


And here's some details.


I bought the dragon fly from Rome last autumn.


Cute little buttons that alteredmommy sent me in May.

Your bag is so much fun and I like how you added special embellishments.  It's nice you can enjoy the items you collected everyday!

That is all kinds of fun.  I love crazy quilting and I love your pop-culture-meets-traditional-technique on this bag.
