Promises, promises

I promised my poor mother a black and white frilly dilly bag. I won't say when I promised! She is a very patient woman, but in sheer desperation, she made it up herself on a recent visit to my place.
How cute does it look in black and white? And on the shoulder of my 'Miss-Fifteen-With-The-Blonde-Locks-To-Die-For'?!
From top to bottom, the fabric details are:
Unknown by Timeless Treasures
'White Swirl' from  Not So Basic Black & White by Avlyn Inc.
'Everything but the Kitchen Sink' 2006 by RJR Fabrics
And, as if I need to say it, the pattern is 'Frilly Dilly Bag' by Janelle Wind. I've lost count how many times I've made this pattern up, and I still love it.

Good job Mum!

  5. I love this bag so much I have just looked it up and found out where I can source the pattern from - it is so cute!!! Your Mum has done a great job! I have so many things on my to do list at the moment but I am going to put my head down and get stuck into them all so that as soon as I get the pattern I can start. Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. Bloom, I hope you never tire of making Frilly Dilly bags because you have such an eye for combining the loveliest fabrics. Each bag is a beauty and this one is no exception. I bet your Mom will love it and not complain about the wait. ;o)

    Your Mum did a smashing job with her B&W Frilly Dilly. Were you teaching her whilst you were making mine? I saw the sneak peak in the post below, it looks yummy!

  13. Dear Bloom,

    I LOVE your Frilly Dilly bag! I can't see where to get a copy of the pattern from though. Can you tell me where you got yours please?

    I didn't realise you had so many projects available. It wasn't until I went through the list that I realised that I had already printed out most of them! They are all fantastic. Thanks so much for being so inspiring. I will be following your blog now!

    Regards Lexi in Perth WA.

  16. I completely love this bag, and the black & white theme. I attempted to make one for my oldest daughter, and it wasn't easy, but turned out super. Thanks so much for sharing.
