New project and this time it’s for me!

I’ve just ordered this Anna Maria Horner pattern, called the Art Student Tote.

I’ve been moaning for ages that I want a new day bag to cart all my crap round in, you know with two kids a handbag is actually a portable life support system. Anyway I couldn’t find one I liked (that didn’t cost a bajillion pounds) so I decided to make one and this is what I’ve chosen. I’m a little nervous as I haven’t made a bag this detailed before, it has lots of straps and pockets, I normally work with simpler patterns but I need to be brave and just get on with it. I can’t wait for the pattern to arrive, promise I will update you as I go along, even if I do make a hash of it!

I’m thinking about using some super yummy animal print from Anna’s new collection Field Study for parts of the bag, what do you think?

The lady in the know, Katy (over at I’m a Ginger Monkey), introduced me to this amazing collection from Anna, if you like animal print as much as I do then this line is for you! The colours look great, it comes in three palettes,

Along with the animal print (did I mention the animal print?!) there are beautiful butterflies, peacock feathers and plenty of florals, I think I may be in love!
