Points of Inspiration. 2.
This is the bag that Jan made for me. Note the sewn outside seams and top corners - adds rigidity you see, because I chose a very soft oilcloth. And although I wasn't expecting it - it's lined, with gingham, after I was given a choice. I love it. I'm sure if you ask her nicely, Jan would make you one too. I love the strong solid pattern, have always been attracted to this sort of pattern. I have no idea why. Too shallow to examine that. But each time I look at this or variants of it, I'm reminded that a single colour is all it takes to have an impact on anything, and that the solid design adds to the impact overall. Which basically means that you can do so much with very little. Much like Jan herself really. I see a fabric I like. She makes it into a bag I like. What's not inspiring about that?
