Every lady no matter how small, needs her handbag.
And here’s some I made earlier:
The start of a new range of pretty bags.
Little Fairy bags are a new range of children’s bags from Crochet Bright and Beautiful aka me. I take inspiration from the colour of the yarn I’m using and then hand bead and decorate them to finish. Each bag is unique, no two are ever the same , the one thing they all share is that they are all 6″(15cm) square and are fully lined with fresh, crisp cotton.
The Pink One
A symphony in pink
Detail of the daisy
I started with a pink bag, well, I just had to. Made in three shades of pink, from candyfloss to seriously Barbie, this bag has it all: Flowers , butterfly and ribbons and bows, sparkly sequins and pearls. Sigh. I’m overwhelmed by the pinkness…It’s seriously pretty.
The Festival One
This one is my personal favourite.
Jewel bright colours and daisy beads. Mmmm
I love the combination of colours and textures in this one.
Detail of the beading
I call this one the Festival one as I can imagine a little girl trailing behind her mummy at a Summer Festival with this bag on her arm, daisy chains in her hair and barefoot. Indulge me. I think I may just have to make a big lady version for myself. This beautiful bag is lined in fresh lime green crisp cotton and is hand beaded with pretty daisy beads all the way around. Gorgeous, even if I do say so myself.
The Rainbow One
Who doesn't love a rainbow?
- Showing the green lining
I’m a sucker for rainbows. Yes I know how they’re made and all, but for me they will always be a little bit of real magic in an otherwise dull world. I’ll never forget the day I witnessed the end of the rainbow plunging into a Swedish lake just yards in front of my feet . I tried to see if there was a pot of gold but just couldn’t quite make it out. I think it was there, just out of sight.
Anyway, this bag features ‘rain’ beads that scatter down the rainbow diagonally and has brilliant crystal beading ( albeit plastic – they’re really bright and sparkly though) on the edge of the bag. Again this bag is lined with brilliant green crisp cotton which offsets the purple edge beautifully.
The different layers of colour also have different textures for richness, and the yellow and blue stripe feature a bobble or two for fun.
The bags are available to purchase on my facebook page , just leave a message under the relevant photo. Payment is via Paypal or I can email you an invoice and pay by card online. I shall soon be uploading these to my folksy shop as well , along with other bags that are soon to be created.
These unique darling little works of handbag art cost just £15 +p and p.
Here’s another one hot off the hook;
The Blue Sky one
Isn't she lovely?
Lovely rainbow handle
Back of the bag featuring ladybird detail
I’m totally in love with this dinky bag. She’s sparkly, fresh and flowery with rainbows , ladybirds and butterflies . Sigh…
Lined with fresh white cotton , and edged with pale blue sparkly sequins.
I may just have to make myself a big one. My inner child is starting to blub a little.
