Pink Flower Garden Theme Patchwork Bag

I made this bag for a friend who wanted something girly and what could be more girly than flowery pink?

I originally wanted to put ivory coloured buttons in the middle of these flowers but she preferred the Pink YoYo Flowers which she felt give more accent to the flowers.

I machine-embroidered her name on a piece of cloth and hand-sewed it on the bag. Quite labour-intensive but the result makes me happy.

Since the bag had been handsewn at the piping, I was able to make this a reversible bag. You can turn it inside out just fine.

Must admit that the embroidery is very amateurishly home-made.....haha.
