The day before Thanksgiving, I made up this little evening bag for my Mom for Christmas. A few years ago, I made her one for summer with an old hankie and some cream fabrics. Someone gave her a lovely Belgian linen hankie for her 90th birthday, so she requested a black bag for winter evenings. Yes, she still goes out of an evening! To the symphony gala, opera benefits, etc. So for this "runaround" gal, I made another Lazy Girl Run Around Bag.
It's hard to see from the picture, but I used a variety of black-on-black fabrics, including a Fairy Frost. I had been concerned about the high contrast between black and white, but the F.F. helped with that since it has a sheen of its own. The lining features a whimsical black and white fabric. I handstitched the hanky on before putting the pieces together. This is an easy pattern and I ought to make a few more. I have lots of hankies left in my stash from Jay's late mother's collection. A satisfying project for an afternoon!
