Umbrella Prints Trimmings Challenge

Well friends, I finished up my Umbrella Prints Trimming Competition Entry.  I had at least 10 different ideas in mind (and with another trimmings packet left, I may use another idea still) but ended up going with themes that I am familiar with-linen, repurposed materials, a big bag and the red cross symbol.  I still have quite a bit of my husband’s old climbing rope left and I really enjoyed the Man-Purse I had previously made so I decided to make up a similar bag design.

I used the Umbrella Prints scraps to outline the cross symbol in a quilted fashion.  I used some black and turquoise linen I had on hand and upcycled some black cordura for the bottom and top of the bag.

I used some left over scraps to put a top edging on an inner pocket.



This was such a fun challenge!  So tell me, what do you think?  Anyone out there also finished on their Umbrella Prints creation?  If so I would love to see it.

Happy Easter everyone!

  1. I love this bag! You did a great job in the challenge using the fabric in such a graphic yet understated way. Again, I love your handles. You make it really hard to maintain my self imposed bag making fast. 😉

    1. Thank you! Nothing like a challenge to trigger some creativity. I thought I saw on your Flickr pages a scrap pack? You do such amazing work-look forward to seeing it if so. 🙂
