Woops.... I realized this morning as I was doing the last minute stitching on this bag that it ought to be Tightwad Tuesday.. But I messed up with yesterday being a holiday and all. So, we might have tightwad day on a different day this week.
If you like elephants, and you like soft beige tones... this is the bag for you. It is lovely and understated. Sort of soothing to the eyeball.
The body is made of durable Mr Fancy Sample Guy materials, so it should live a long life.
I got my piece work fix on the adjustable straps. I used a combination of beige and light brown pieces for some variety on the bag.
For the inside lining and pockets, I cut up a shirt from Tanzania that I found at a Brandon thrift shop.
The bag measures 9.5 inches by 11 inches. A nice compromise between a big BIG bag and a small handbag.
If you purchase this handbag, you will not only feed refugees in a displaced person camp; but you will also be able to lay claim to the fact that you can easily sling an elephant over your shoulder and carry on with your everyday tasks.
Bids begin at $45.00 Cdn and the auction will continue until 8:00 central standard time.
Leave me a comment, will ya?
