May Flower Bag

A few weeks ago my garden was filled with so much colors. It’s the summer of May in the island again, which means that my bougainvilleas are in their fullest bloom.

I was inspired by its gradient orange-pink shades reflecting in the sun, as if they were dancing gracefully with the wind in the endless sapphire sky. As I sat in the picnic table with my paper and pen and a hot cuppa, the idea of a bucket bag came to my mind, and I know just how it’s going to look like.

The May Flowers bag has just passed the testing phase and I am very happy to be able to put up another pattern release for this year. It’s been a very busy week for my testers and I’m very grateful to be able to work with amazing and reliable people in this community. Without them, this project would not be possible.

Check out this collage of their beautiful work-in-progress!

From left to right are the creations of Dina Sengupta, Malou Gaerlan, Pamela Zee, Peachy Gonzalez, Sabrina Merchant, Dimple Massey, Carrie Heise Morissette, Tammy Egan and April O’Brien.

The May Flower bag, although it kinda looks complicated uses a minimal pattern repeats and it is very addicting once you get the hang of it. It has a very easy to follow instructions and athough it is not quite beginner-friendly, this is a nice project to up your skills!

You can find the complete written pattern with pictures on my Ravelry and Etsy shops. Also, there is a Youtube tutorial on how I did the cord and tassels for this bag. Check it out here.
