Getting Ready ~

I can't believe Brimfiled Flea Market is next week!

Of course I needed to make a new market bag to carry all my flea treasures in

...and I made this wonderful scrap rose pin to put on it ~ you can get the tutorial here. I've made similar, but this one is constructed different ~ Rebecca is so very clever!

There's a reason why I saved those tiny scraps of all my favorite French linens ~ I knew someday I'd use them. I know you guys get it ~ some people around here that don't ;)

I love my new bag ~ creamy linen, ruffles, lots of room for everything, and all my favorite colors rolled into that yummie rose

Even a little pocket to keep my Brimfield bucks in (stamped with permanent fabric ink)

I modified a bag pattern that I had designed to create a bag similar to this one, and if you'd like a fun ruffly bag, check out these ones here ~ love her!

If you're local, let me know if you're going to Brimfield ~

P.S. I see Rebecca has gone to Haiti and will return June 1st ~ guess you'll have to wait until she returns to get the tutorial ;)

I've only made it up to Brimfield twice.

The second time we had to rent a U-Haul trailer to get the stuff home.

I've been banned from ever going again.

Have fun!

I have one of those bags, I love it but yours is just as beautiful- I love the pretty rose.

Someday I am going to go to Brimfield :)

Absolutely adore the rose you have made, I have tried to get the tutorial but there is a problem with the link! I would love to make one.

What absolutely beautiful goodies you make.
