A Little Cinched Lace Bag

I have to admit I have been loving the "Lace" trend we are seeing this year.  I've got bags on the brain lately and I was curious about just how Lace would translate into bag format.  So I made one.  A little cinched lace bag. What do you think?
 I went with gray lace over the top of gray denim. I will probably "gray" myself out over here but right now I'm still in love with this perfect pairing color.  I regret that I didn't make this little bag bigger.  I always underestimate sizing when I'm cutting out a new bag.
 It's not as functional as I need it to be and really needs a boxed bottom to be convenient.  But I do love how cute it turned out. Mer, my fashion consultant, said I needed a little pop of color or a flower on it. So I added a gray one.  I wanted to keep it neutral. :)

I also experimented with using french seams on the sides and the bottom which made it interesting to construct. I love the construction puzzles that making bags create.

I'm linking this up to Purse Palooza, fun sewing contest going on at Sew Sweetness.
Also linking up to SewCanShe, & the Train to Crazy.

I have a few projects to share this week So hopefully I will update more than once here. :)  Also I get to go to quilt market again!! We leave Thursday and I have high hopes of sewing up a new bag design for the trip.  Stay tuned!
