Today is "la fete des meres",
mother's day in France,
and I made this library bag for my Mom.
I thought it would be perfect, my mom was a teacher,
and she loves book, so of course she needed a library book!
(needed is maybe extreme...)
And as I showed you last week here,
I used a mix of Liberty of London, linen and selvage,
all of the good stuff!
There are 8 different Liberty prints,
the bottom and handles are of a dark purple cotton sateen,
I machine quilted the bottom and the handles, to add texture
and stability to the bag.
The back of the bag is made of linen and the same sateen,
I hand embroidered "pour le plaisir de lire"
for the pleasure of reading in a simple back stitch.
I hand quilted the linen parts of the bag,
I tried to do a brick pattern for the back, but it did not turn out exactly as I expected,
but it still does the job!
Bonne fete Maman
et bonne lecture!
