A Senior Modern Maud

A senior relative in my family has been using one of my bags for several years now.  It goes absolutely everywhere with her and it has seen better days!  The best kind of compliment a bag maker can have!

So I thought it was time to make her a new one!

My oh so reliable Modern Maud to the rescue!

This pattern was named after another senior member of my family, my Nanny, sadly not with us anymore. 

I think these colours are to my relative's tastes and style.  She has also been one of my main 'suppliers' of vintage lace, buttons and remnants, so I'm 'giving' back some of her donated buttons!

There are 2 spacious pockets inside, one zippered with an easy to grab zipper pull.

And hopefully the feet & reinforced base will keep this bag sturdy as it gets dragged around used plenty!

So that's another Christmas pressie ticked off the list!

  2. Another happy person in your family I would think. Love the buttons and the contrast they make with the blues.

  5. It is such a compliment, isnt it, to know that a bag you've made someone has been used to the point of destruction! I'm sure the replacement will go down well :-)

  10. The bag is gorgeous! I particularly love the striped lining. Bit of a fan of stripes and denim tones here!
