frolic! + hetterson: make a scalloped bag!


For the last few months, I've been working with the wonderful Hannah of Hetterson to create some new projects and inspirational editorials for Frolic! The idea behind these posts is to provide accessible wardrobe ideas as well as little take-away projects for you. Today, we are pleased to share the first project: A Scalloped Bag!

Hannah styled the bag on our friend, Skye, with a darling blue linen dress from Rennes and comfortable t-strap sandals (like these). It's the perfect outfit for a Saturday morning run to the farmer's market. We couldn't resist adding an adorable bunny rabbit! The photography is by Lisa Warninger.


If you make the scalloped bag, please let us know. We'd love to see your version!
