Flower bag frenzy

 This is a bag which has proved popular over a number of years.  I was taught how to make the flower on a course run by the lovely Helen Coverley.  Her original of this bag has a horizonal strip like mine, but the base on hers is made from a solid piece of fabric - something which is not practical with jeans!  Her solution was to use strips to piece the base, and this I have continued to do.  I have made the bags in a variety of sizes as the whim takes me, and the flowers from scraps in toning colours.  I am now experimenting with making the flowers from denim teamed with print.
