Another project waiting in the large ‘to-do’ pile is the Tulip Bag from Monkey Buttons. I am planning to make the version with squares (made in black & grey on the pattern) using one or more of my lime green(ish) batiks and a plain brown cotton for the main colour which I have yet to buy.
I want to make this before summer to go with a lovely lime green frilled Rocha, John Rocha shrug which I recently bought from Debenhams and which I plan to work part of my summer wardrobe around. The shrug looks a bit pale in this picture but it is a really warm shade of lime, not too bright, which is set off really well against a dark chocolate brown. It is a shame that digital cameras often don’t show true colours as these are much closer in shade than they appear to be here.
