I am recycling the label of the recycled upholstery fabric that forms the body of this fun-filled bag. Particularly because it says; "all worsted wool", which made me think of yesterday's wooly bag. Today will be a happy "hangover" from all that wooly bliss.
Besides, it passes flammability tests and recommends heavy duty use. Sounds dependable.
The strap is bright yellow (table cloth) on one side and a splash happy green and blue swirl on the other. The orange plastic belt buckle from less inhibited days of fashion just pulls the whole darned thing together.
Darn dog. Although there are roughly 19 piles of fabric scattered from one end of my work space to the other.... Much like wall to wall carpeting.... She INSISTS on laying on the bag that I am trying to work on.
Last night I marched myself up to bed without a finished bag when I overheard myself shout at the dog: "Don't you bleed on tomorrow's bag!!"
Bloody dog.Now, don't get all squeamish on me. She didn't.
This bag has an extra pocket under the flap. So that's a total of five pockets- one in each side panel, two on the inside, and another hidden under the flap.
Today's bag is brought to you by: part of a quilt that I scored at Niv Thrift, a flowery bit of trim from Rosa, a yellow table cloth, some worsted wool from Mr Sample Guy, a bright green bit from baby sling making lady, some buttons with history, and some scraps of eyelet blouse from the Armbrusters' garage.
Not like I wandered into their garage and just helped myself. I do have a principle or two.
Same schtick, folks. If you want the bag, leave me comments and numbers throughout the day, up to 8 pm cst. It is fine to come back and re-bid just as often as you like. It is also fine (downright wonderful, in fact) to simply comment on the bag. Or lurk.
It's all good.
