So April Rhodes is a fabric genius. There. I said it. Like her Observer collection is bananas! Like its so major it might even be plantains! And like its been sitting on my shelf waiting for me to play with it for a couple weeks, but I wanted a project where I could use all of them because that’s just the way it had to be. And then Giucy Giuce posted this awesome Bucket Bag sew-along and I counted all the stripes and there were 10, which was exactly what I needed to make two bags with all the fabrics: one for me and one for Helena.
I gave Helena a choice between blue and yellow and she surprisingly chose the yellow, which gave me the blue. So, I chose the Bluebottle Field Denim & Parisian Blue Pure Elements to go with the blues and the Canyon Sunset & Chocolate for the yellows.
So blue happened….
And yes, the bags had a photoshoot. Here are the highlights.
