Granny Style Bag - Vintage Happy 2 for Riley Blake Designs

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. I was on a fun cruise with my family, enjoying beaches, ocean, and family. They even served us Thanksgiving turkey believe it or not! It was a lovely time, but I'm happy to be back from super traveling (planes, hotel stays, bus rides, boat rides - we did it all)! This cute project was waiting for me upon my return and I'm so excited to share it with you!

Many of you are probably waiting for Vintage Happy 2 by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet for Riley Blake Designs. It releases this month, and I cannot tell you how lovely it is! Perfect low volume prints along with Lori's fabulous vintage style prints of florals, patterns, and sewing! I already knew what I had to make when I first saw it - a Granny Style Bag with classic wood handles. I've had these handles for awhile and I'm so pleased to have used them with this fabric.

When I first started making bags, Granny style was the first designs I used. Classic yet cute, it makes a wonderful bag. I paired it with hexies to showcase Lori's prints and used the Dressmaker low volume print as my background. Here is what I made:
