Chez Moi

As soon as I saw Moda's Posh by Chez Moi I had earmarked it to make something for Maddi. The fabrics are gorgeous, just right for a teenage girl!! Eventually after weeks of it sitting in my cupboard, Maddi and I started to play:

Add a pair of old faded jeans and the bag came to life. Maddi loves yo-yo's so they were a definite must have on the bag front. We didnt make it too big, but she wanted the handle to be long enough to either hang by her side or across her chest......so a knotted strap fixed that, making it adjustable. And of course it needed pockets:


We couldnt waste these, they are perfect for her mobile phone and her IPOD!!! She loves it!! Im going to whip up another one for the shop and then write the pattern for it. Now Im looking forward to making her something from their new fabric line, Charisma!!

I love your bag. It's so nice when old jeans can have new life. Have a look at my site. I've made a quilt and pillows for outdoor use from old jeans.

What a great idea Rose. The denim looks great with the Chez Moi fabric & I love the pockets. I'd better not show this to my 12-year-old!

It's adorable, Rose! And it has the 'green' factor. *s* Nice finish.

This is too adorable - the idea of using jean pockets for the cell phone and ipod is BRILLIANT! I must remember that for later.

That is sooooo cute!

I love the Moda Posh line also. I am making a Yellow Brick Road lap quilt out of them.

Wow! What a great bag! I'm sure your DD will be the star of all her friends with that bag.

It's an adorable bag Rose, i love the combination of pretty cotton fabric and denim. Your daughter must be very thrilled with it and you.

Dear Rose, You are such an inspiration! This bag is adorable and I can imagine every girl in my son's class loving this bag. (He is the same age as Maddie). Any news about "Tender Moments" being available for sale to the US? Julie in NH

Rose how gorgeous. Love the whole idea. I also love the Posh fabrics and I'm 40 something. Maddie sure has great taste!!!!

Sweetie, it's perfect!!! I can see why Maddi loves it! The combination of the denim and the "posh" fabrics look wonderful! And the details of the suffolk puff flowers is great, and those pockets are such a good idea!! You've done a fabulous job!

May Kristin said...

I can see why she loves it! It's gorgeous. As you said, perfect for a teenager!

Leisha Camden said...

Wow, beautiful bag!! Great fabric combinations! But I wouldn't have expected anything else from you, either. ;-)

Great way to recycle with the pieces of old blue jeans! :-)

Love Maddi's bag. Thanks for showing it to us at Ulverstone. Hope you're going to do a pattern.
