ahhh... I do love this bag.
I'm quite sure that fabric came from a little fairy named Kim, who sifts through cast-aways and brings me the finest in unwanted fabrics.
But that map fabric that forms the pockets is from my sister-in-law who lives in Rome. It seems fitting that she give me a skirt covered in map pictures. My brother and her, along with my three loverly nieces; have lived on several locations on those maps.
The colours are indicative of the kind of weather we've been having around here. It's technically autumn, but we've been flooded in the most glorious summer sun and heat.
Great details and colour depth. Why are vintage pieces so appealing? They must be made in an entirely different way. And perhaps the dyes are different too?
The backyard view.
Nothing says "Darfur bag" like a few buttons to finish it off.
This is a medium sized bag- 10" x 11". Two pockets under the flap; two pockets inside.
Bids start at $30- Cdn and this auction will close this evening at 9:30 pm cst.
It's Thursday, everyone. Celebrate by standing the "wrong" way in the elevator at work; will ya?
