Perfect for summer!

Some Verna and a great bag pattern from Nanette at Freda's Hive has resulted in this summer prettiness. I think the hardest part was finding handles as I did not want cloth ones.
I love the way it looks so fresh &the lime jumbo ric rac was perfect.
Does it make you feel like summer? It is so horribly hot here at present...every day above 40C...garden has suffered...hope it ends soon!  Amazing that some have snow, some rain & we have  this heat!

Love the bag....great handles too! What a fun project! Are you using it now? It is cool here, so right now it's hard to imagine a heat wave :) I know when it's summer here, it will be hard for me to imagine it being cool :) Stay in the shade :)

The bag is terrific and cloth handles wouldn't have been nearly as effective.
