You probably wonder what is the relationship between a pouch and a party theme. Sometimes, you find inspirations in the usual place. It started with a purchase I did this morning. I bought this yellow and white XL frame pouch with a collapsible handle designed by Oktak. My favorite handbag over the last years was yellow and I missed it. This burst of color complements many of my outfits. Plus, I like the sunny shade.
As I examined further the fabric pattern, I realized that those jungle animal shapes would be wonderful for a baby shower or a first birthday party. The silhouettes are simple yet sophisticated. If you are not a talented artist, you can draw the basic shapes from a coloring book and a kids book. You may have to make a few adjustments to get it right.
As for the color palette, I think that the festive yellow and white combination works every time. It is gender neutral. It is suitable for kids and adults.

I love the jungle animal theme. Actually, I’ve always loved any animal theme for baby showers and first birthdays. Cool that you’re creative enough to have gotten inspiration just by looking at a handbag (and it’s a cute handbag at that!). Mel @ theme a party

Animals are always a great idea and the shapes on your bag will be pretty and fun if you use them. And you don’t even have to be an artist the figures don’t even need any detail. Inspiration right under our noses!
