A while back I was blessed to win a fabulous Island Girl Bag in a giveaway hosted by the super sweet Maggie of Gussy Has a Lot to Say & Sew. The best part? I got to design my very own bag! My first big decision was which of Mary Beth's fabulous bag styles to choose. After a lot of deliberation, I decided on the Sassy Satchel.
Then, it was off to select my fabrics. I had a blast browsing through her spring selections and finally chose a super sweet palette of dark & light pinks and beautiful shades of green.
I love the way the contrasting fabrics really blend together to give the bag a very finished, professional look...not to mention a certain sassy flair! The seams are all reinforced and incredibly sturdy and Mary Beth's attention to detail in her stitching is some of the best I've seen. I'm certain my Island Girl Bag will serve me well for many years to come!
