Tanzania is where the lovely brown and green fabric of the shoulder strap came from. A generous supporter donated the fabric to the project.
It goes perfectly with a handstitched green quilt, the last scrap of brown piecework, and some other brown and green bits and baubles. This close-up shows the lovely detailing that got laboriously stitched into the green quilt. Not by me. Nope, I was at soccer that day.
I can promise you.... With this bag over your shoulder, you'd swear you were actually IN Tanzania. (But I'll never put that in writing...)
This bag could come in super handy if you are ever at a formal function and the bottom of your shirt sleeve falls off.
Or the top of your fancy dinner shirt. Simply remove said items from the interior of the Darfur bag, attach to garment in appropriate places, and Voila! Problems solved.
In the meanwhile, they function perfectly as pockets for your goodies.
Who will start off the week with a bid?
Give me your name, your number, and a brief message.... oh no. Never mind. In my fatigue, I thought I was on the answering machine...
The bids will end at 6:00 pm Monday evening, June 16, 2008, Central Standard time.
