'Dandelion Clocks' Bag - new bag finished today!

Dandelion Clocks Bag: heavy weight brown wool blend fabric embellished with 'Dandelion Clocks' which have been hand crocheted in cotton, with vintage button centres with dandelion seeds blowing across the bag.
Handles in matching fabric with vintage grosgrina ribbon down the middle.
Complete with Dandelion Clock closure which buttons down to close

Fully lined in a matching coffee coloured twill cotton lining completee with full width pockets

Close up of the 'Dandelion Clocks' - with their vintage button centres

I started this last night making the Dandelion Roundels ............ sort of fre formed them as I went along 
Then today started making up the bag - selecting fabrics and ribbons and buttons
Deciding on the shape .then cutting stitching etc
Each Dandelion is hann sewn on with teh stems and leaves couched down as well
I left the outer edge of the Dandelions free so they would have more texture and added the air borne seeds with their little windmill tops to add that bit of whimsey!
Added an extra Dandelion for the closure ....and once all these sewn on and all ends secured then I could start making up the bag ............ hence taking me all day to put together!  But I think it was worth it and echoes a Summer's Day

More importantly I think it all works .... what do you think??
