Congo

On this icey, icey day, I present you with a Congo bag. I don't think they actually lie around in rows, properly spaced with trees between them in the Sahara... But you never know.



This bag has practical neutral colours, measuring 12 by 13 inches. The strap is adjustable, there are pockets in each side panel, and two pockets in the lining.

I took a close-up of the back of the bag to capture the subtle animal print imbedded in the upholstery.

This is the interior of the bag. This fabric was given to me by our local doc who brought it here from the Republic of Congo.

raarrr.
Anyone in a catty mood?
Leave me a comment, and/or a bidding amount on this meowy bag.
I'll definitely be here- all the highways are closed; because for some bizarre reason, we are having rain in February. Remember last week I mentioned windchill values of -50? Now... Not so much. But when you get rain on top of winter, what you have is a lot of super slippery ice.
Not that leopard friendly.
Yet.... I see a leopard in my studio......
weird.

Great bag Joyce.... but I think your new profile picture looks too cold!!!! Freak winter storm headed your way from southern half of SK.... sorry for such crummy news this early on a Monday morning.

I will have to take you up on your offer of a new tie for my bag. I had food poisoning last week and needed to wash the bag in hot water to get the sme --- OK, you get the idea. Wool and hot water don't mix. No rush. Besides, it's too darn slippery to leave our homes.

Joyce, this is a beautiful bag - created by a beautiful person.

sALES you say.... hmm...
(she putters off to her closety room, rummages about, tries to locate scissors...)
Everyone likes sales. I like sales. I don't know how to shop if there isn't a "clearance" or "sale" sign. They are like my homing devices.
Thanks, Valerie. Looks like you've got this computer techie thing "in the bag"!
