Luscious Lime

I've had this fabric for a while, but not known what to make with it. Inspiration struck yesterday and within the space of a couple of hours I had two new bags and two more on the way. First a couple of tote bags - these are slightly smaller than the normal (I wanted dainty not voluminous!) and the pocket is on the outside. This one is finished with a rosette and vintage button. The other one (not shown) is finished simply with three little vintage 'crystal' effect buttons on the edge of the pocket.
Then a couple more slouchy bags (I've given up on snowy bags - it just didn't sound right!)
No fancy embellishments on these, just that gorgeous lime linen and a couple of vintage maroon buttons back to back as a fastener.
