the interchangeable bag . . .

This little bag uses
The Interchangeable 3 Bag silver frame
by Ellen Medlock

The silver frame has loops where you can attach your strap with clip closures.
I had the silver clips and attached them to the silver chain.

You can purchase patterns, frames and ready made chains from the website here

 A sleeve to thread the rod into is on the inside of the bag. 
The lining folds over to the outside to form a piping.
In hindsight, I wish I had picked a different lining.

Below, you can see the rod removed.
It is very easy to thread the rod through the frame and the sleeve to change out your bag.

The fabric is wool felt, embellished with flowers and threads.

I had not heard of that type of bag frame before but it's very clever! I love the colors and texture of your bag.

Love your beautiful bag & all the touches you gave it. This must be a newer pattern from Ellen Medlock? I made a bag last Christmas from one of her first patterns & the instructions were so will have to track down this sweet one! Thanks for sharing.

How did you find the pattern to follow? I have never heard of that designer, but love the idea of using the handle more than one.

The design is awesome and I love the idea that you used wool felt!
