Monday's Offering

(Hey-- YOU try and come up with an original bag name every day! I'm stumped this morning... And)
Well, Monday morning has dawned.
A few of my favourite things: that gorgeous turquoise lambskin coat-turned-bag.

The edge of one of those funky wall carpets that all our parents had in the '70's.
(just the edge- I avoided the deer and the sunset...)
My daughter's cat.
And... two lamby pockets on the front panel.
And. My right foot.
The coat.
(Did I mention that?)

Love this piece. A snip from a pillow slip.


A turquoise kitchen apron. I love those dandelion looking poofs on that fabric.
The strap: several unused fabric napkins, and an apron.

I must say; this bag was a pleasure to build. It's soft, a lovely medium size (12" wide; 11" deep)
[Crumb. I forgot to photograph the inside, and now it's nearly crush hour.... You'll have to accept my description.]
~
A few more pocket features on the inside: double pockets on one side. Pocket #1 is divided into two small pockets. I greedily thought that one was the perfect size for my business cards. Pocket #2 and #3 span the width of the bag.

Bids begin at $25- Cdn and the auction concludes at 9:30 pm, cst this evening- November 9, 2009.

totally unrelated:
Well, you're invited.
All of you.
Great way to meet some lurkers. ;)
