I like Valentine's Day.
It helps to be in a secure, longterm relationship with a sweetheart that I still love after all these years.
But in my mind, Valentine's isn't just about romantic love. It's about L-O-V-E which we all have a reason to celebrate, whatever our situation.
I like the fiery, unabashed colors of Valentines.
I like the shape of a heart.
And I love expressing all of that with fabric, buttons, neckties, and trim.
The particulars of this lovely bag are as follows:
7" across; 9" lengthwise; and 3.5" in depth.
The adjustable shoulder strap is fashioned from a cheery red necktie, and a piece of happy trim.
There are four pockets: two on the inside; one under the flap on the front of the bag; and the fourth on the rear of the bag, with a handy dandy velcro closure.
The exterior of the bag is fashioned from a rescued piece of red velvet, and some heavy old curtains. The front pocket is full of playful pictures of a man and woman sharing a bicycle (very much in love, of this I'm sure).
I will sell this bag using the auction format, with the first bid starting at a minumum of $35.00 Cdn.
Let the bidding begin in the comments below. Bids will close on Monday, Feb 13, 2012 at 7:00 pm, cst. Now. Go love on someone!
