Margo Handbag Dressed in Poppy Lane by Timeless Treasures

Lazies, Today we have Margo dressed in ‘Poppy Lane’ by Alice Kennedy for Timeless Treasures. I love Alice’s style. I used her black/limey green ‘Kiwi’ line on our City Bag pattern cover recently. Alice – keep ’em comin’! Coincidentally, I have an Alice Kennedy on a branch of my family tree. Back to the Margo Handbag (LGD127), I could not resist this beautiful feature fabric. It’s perfect accented by the small red/white dot behind the pockets.

I chose a cute newsprint style piece for the lining, giving the inside of the bag plenty of brightness. A fabulous Atom Red zip from Coats & Clark matched beautifully! I rounded out the inside with a companion red/white poppy print for the pockets and small red/white dot for the Bag-E-Bottom sleeve. I chose black thread for all of the stitching.

The Margo Handbag pattern (LGD127) has already started shipping. Check your favorite local quilt shop or online for the pattern. Margo uses Bag-E-Bottom size F for the bag support. Supply list and info are posted at our blog here.
