Simonne sent me some patchwork she had hand stitched & bits & pieces of silk & taffeta, & a pattern for a "bo ho bag". there was a seam in the middle of the bag so i didn't use the pattern because i wanted to use her patchwork across the front of the bag to make the floral design.
i found a really informative tutorial for a "patchy bo ho bag" here,
but decided to make the straps & gusset in one piece from some floral furnishing fabric (not enough silk & taffeta for the straps) the white lining is the reverse side of this fabric, a couple of pockets on the inside from scrap material, & some pearly buttons for the flower centres. machine stitched stems & grass in orange to add a bit of warmth to the purple silk daisies & the patchy blue flowers.
