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!
