Boughing to Pressure


A branch (UK: /ˈbrɑːntʃ/ or UK: /ˈbræntʃ/, US: /ˈbræntʃ/) or tree branch (sometimes referred to in botany as a ramus) is a woody structural member connected to but not part of the central trunk of a tree.
(Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)


Otherwise known as "another kick at the can"... Or branch. (can you kick at a branch?)


The bough is again made of leather, turned upside down for that fuzzy effect. Three special buttons from my collection form the buds on the branch.

Two pockets beneath the flap. Just right for a phone and keys.



(I really love this fabric. It came in a lot of hand-me-down stuff from someone some time ago. Gorgeous. I always wonder what the original intent was for that piece. Curtains? Clothes? Shame it never got done, but good for me and the Darfur bags in any case).





This is inside out. upholstery samples make up sturdy pockets on each side.




I'll be back with words- too much going on right now...
peace out.



Boughing measures 12.5" both ways.
Bids begin at $25- Cdn, please. This auction will close tonight, March 22, 2010 at 9:30 pm, cst.

Oh, this might make a nice present, $30

It WOULD make a nice present... but I have no intention of giving it away. :) I feel in need of an "alternate", and this bough bag (like the long line of tree bags before it... of which I would also love one!) would look great on my shoulder. A wee bit selfish? Unashamedly.
$35
