Button-licious

A darling of a bag.



Anyone who slept in the 70's has seen this fabric before, stretched across their mattress or pillow.


As a matter of fact, you are nearly wearing a bed on your shoulder. A butterfly quilt serves as the body; green chenille for the strap, and the side pocket is another 70's sheet.



Not to mention those precious buttons that I stitched on with love and care...

Just there, you can glimpse the handstitching in the orange quilt fabric. Great big, luscious butterflies, and all that nectar to feast on.
One last lingering look.....

Dang! I love that big pink button right there, so proud. So confident. Never a moment of self-doubt did she endure.
A clever market-er would say.... "And neither will you, if you own this stupendous bag"!
But you know what? You will. We all do, I think.
Want a perrennial shoulder bag?
$25.00 would get you down the right garden path.
Leave me a comment or an e-mail. Include a numerical figure with it so that I know you are bidding, and not just farewell. Remember, we are in Manitoba time, otherwise known as central standard time. Bids will conclude at 6:00 pm, Friday.
