Stacy's Artichoke Anathama

Stacy writes a blog called 'Artichoke Anathema', and has written about her Onbag project.  She says it should be making me rich!

 Stacy writes :

"I have completed many projects. One of which was a diaper bag. The hospital sent us home with a simple black Similac bag that I used after I removed the labels. It really wasn't big enough for outings with the cloth diapers plus I was lugging around purse, diaper bag, and baby. There are tons of great free projects on the web, some of which are free for a reason and others that should be making someone rich. The Onbag should be making some rich. It is genius; diaper bag with extremely long straps to be worn around your body and accommodate your baby wearing! My purse fits in in to boot! ...

Wal-Mart $2 cotton with a bit of lycra. It is a cool charcoal color. I didn't want black but yet needed versatility in color. Grey. Who goes wrong with grey?

The straps are tied criss-cross, through the loops, across one another to go back through the loops, then finally knotted together. I think I need to make a little loop to go around the upper part of the straps to keep them closer in at my shoulder blades. I thought the 14" width would not be too wide, but alas, it is....

Opened up, here you can see the pockets and lining. I got a great deal on the salmon colored raw silk. Being one of my favorite colors and fabrics, I couldn't resist."

I knew this one would be lovely! Tulip print outer with turquoise slubby silk lining.

The silk lining is almost exactly the colour of the tulips on the outer fabric.

This is a very luxurious Onbag Baby!

I hope that Cindy loves her new bag.

This beauty is all mine! 'Old Gold' taffeta lining and navy blue cotton drill outer. I love all the beautiful brocades and silks but I fancied something a little more simple...

This bag was made for my dear friend with a taste for luxury. Floral silk print lining matched with brown cotton drill outer.
