Fashion gurus recommend "the color of summer" every year and you'll find it filling the shops.
I have no ideas about which is the color suggested for 2012 summer, but, sewing this bag, I realized that gold is a great color for this season.
Gold... like the sun, the sand, the ripe wheat, the sun-tanned skin :)
I like this fabric!
It's a strong upholstery cloth I recycled from an old pattern book; you probably remember the previous bags I made with other pieces (different colors) in the past (all sold out, except the blue one).
I love this charming brocade, the two-tones bacgkground and the floral pattern. I'm so sad that only one (but large!) sheet remains.
I coupled it with a plain gold upholstery fabric: the handle and the lining (with two wide pockets) are made of it.
The design is simple: rounded corners, six pleats on both sides, medium size, clousure by a magnetic snap, handle suitable for wearing the bag on shoulders.

I'm changing my mind about gold this year. I've never appreciated it so much; I like best silver for jewels and I've always considered it a color for mature women. I was wrong!
I started to reconsider gold making the wedding bag for Francesca and now I look at this color in a new way.
Do you like gold?
