Autumn Bag

“Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.”
William Cullen Bryant

It all began with this Forest Fancy mini-charm pack by Moda.

I couldn’t decide if this was going to be a table runner, place mats, or a bag.

The more I worked with the fabric, the more I loved it.
The Mesquite Bean Fabric shop also had the fabric by the yard, so I purchased some for the border and the lining. The burnt orange fabric was in one of my fabric bins.
It just had to be an autumn bag.

I used 100% cotton batting and backed it with muslin.
It reinforced the outer bag and it could stand on it’s own.

I also backed the lining with a thin, stiff, fusible backing.
I like the way it shaped the lining.

A few years ago, I had purchased an acorn and squirrel dangles that came in a set.
I finally got to use them.
