I thought it would be a good idea to attempt Africa Wednesdays this year. We've seen this fabric before. Its a piece from Tanzania, and what's fun about it is all the different looks it can take on depending on where I cut the rectangle for the flap.
The edge pieces are cut from an MCC rescued placemat. They show a lot of fun details.
The brown body is super soft- a great therapy if you're feeling stressed. Imagine your wallet wrapped up in a cozy winter sweater.
This bag measures 10.5 inches deep and 13 inches across. That classifies it as a handbag in my world.
The interior shows another interesting feature. I found some shirts at a thrift shop in Brandon this summer that were made in Tanzania. I used the bodice for the pocket; which actually forms two pockets on the one side. Another pocket is on the other side of the interior. Three inside pockets in total. There are no side panel pockets on this bag because I did not want to lose the graphics on the fabric; so I added a pocket to the front of the bag, just beneath the flap.
Bids as usual until 8 pm, cst.
