BOHO BAG #2

I decided to make another Boho bag to take to Florida with me.  I had a great piece of fabric to use for the front and enough of a black jacquard fabric for the bag, gusset and handle.  I had a great picture of a gypsy girl that I wanted to use so the colors went well with the material.  I made a flap and crazy quilted it around the pic and then lined the back of the flap with the same black fabric.  I am trying to use fabrics that I have around the house and deplete the stash.  I found a great trim at JoAnnes yesterday and some cording that matched also.



The 3 pics I will show are the flap once pieced,  then crazy quilted an the 3rd. is the gypsy girl.  She photographed very light but is definitely better when seen.  I have just finished sewing on the trims to the flap and will finish the bag tomorrow then take another picture of the finished bag.
