Well, okay, perhaps this isn't actually about wild orchids, but they were definitely the inspiration for this beautiful fabric that I found on one of my shopping trips.
When I found it I knew it would make a beautiful bag but I took some time over deciding on the shape of bag to make. It needeed to be a simple enough shape to highlight the fabric, too busy a shape would detract from the lovely screen printed design. I also took great care to select just the right butttons for the handles taking a trip to the wonderful Duttons for Buttons down in town here. They have hundreds (perhaps into the thousands) of beautiful buttons but actually it didn't take long to make the decision as these were the first that really caught my eye and were 'so right' - all the others I looked at just didn't match up to these.
I do hope you like it too.
