This isn't as easy as it looks; you know.

Some particularly astute people may remember this fabric from months back, when two loving husbands "fought" valiantly over a bag named Tanzania; each vying for the undying love of their fair maiden.

I named this bag Serengeti because Tanzania had been taken.
(pretty deep and meaningful, eh?)

This nifty-neato bit creates a pocket beneath the flap. There is also one side panel pocket, about the right size for a cell phone or bunch of keys.

I really like that soft brown stuff. It came straight to my door from a fellow sewing mama who gives her time to MCC, sewing quilts that land up all over the world. She gave me lots of other amazing pieces which you don't get to see yet, cuz I'm not quite done oggling them myself.

This bag measures 11" deep and 13" across.
You ask for handbags, Joyce makes handbags.
Now quit your whining and put your money where your mouth is.
(Or just leave me a comment- I like those too)
As usual, this carnival will be on until 8 pm, cst.

This is a really nice bag, Joyce.

I was going to bid, but since I already have an "africa bag" and considering the day Rana had yesterday :) - I'm going to hope that she gets it!

Can't wait to see tomorrow's bag!

Ranavan said...

Oh well - considering the day I had the other day it is probably good I didn't win...I guess I need to save my pennies.

Thanks for the thought Shauna :)

Joyce as always you make a beautiful bag!
