fanny pack

In ten days time we will have another market :
Saturday August 17
10.00  -  17.00

(in Zierikzee)

This is a special textile market
so I will leave my paintings home
and will take only "textile stuff" with me.

Some time ago
I made these small bags :
bum bag
fanny pack
(ha, didn't know that name but I like it)

I started making them
when we visited a medieval feast
and loved those tiny pouches, worn on a belt
for special small things.
(nothing like the handbags or shopping bags
we have nowadays)

Time to make some new ones like that.

The first pic has funny colours because is was taking at night,
next one (by daylight) the second colour is added
and the slot for the belt is made.

Decorations on the flap

finished front and inside the flap 

Back of the fanny pack

My  QUEEN OF THE NIGHT (Epiphyllum oxypetalum)
has been very generous lately

Though there were even more flowers buds,
in the end as much as 8 flowers bloomed
(not all at once of course !)

In the early evening three more started to open up
(the two at the bottom and one high up
are already from days before)

The next morning all were gone .....

(always hoping for seeds to develop
but never had any luck there)

4 opmerkingen:

  1. Die Tasche ist sehr schön geworden, ich würde wahrscheinlich noch die Sticknadel zücken ;O)))
    Leider blüht die Königin der Nacht wirklich viel zu kurz.
    Liebe Inselgrüße

    1. Danke Kerstin .... vielleicht, aber erst muss das Band noch, für diesen únd nummer zwei ...

  2. love your blue bag & does your Queen of the Night have a beautiful perfume?

    1. The next bag is drying :-)
      Ohhhh YES ! and strong !
      (even a bit too much so when three blooms are open all at once !)
