I am kicking myself.
When Loretta, the one time mayor of Flin Flon's wife sent me a large box of fabric to re-use, she had nifty notes pinned to things with history.
Like the flap of this bag, for example. I know that it is a bandana/scarf. I know that it is batik. I know that I kept the little yellow slip of paper that was pinned to it, telling more of its history. I know that slip of paper is somewhere in this room. I know that it dates back to the 60's or 70's. but there was more. (Loretta. if you still read, will you help us out?!)
In any case, I absolutely adore it.
That top turned into a pocket just beneath the flap.
The body is fashioned from a really soft, almost velveteen feeling fabric.
I took advantage of the orange in the batik to use some great orange in the shoulder strap. Now, not all of you are as passionate about brown and orange as I am. But I trust that some are!
I never tire of it, although I will eventually run out of it.
Inside out. More shorts pockets that are better served as bag pockets.
