I started out by arranging some thicker, ropier thread in the shape of an unruly tree. Then I placed the cheese cloth over top and ran along the tree outline with the sewing machine.
The blend of colours and the places for your eye to wander is sort of delightful.
The buttons add a dimension of texture that compliments the thread picture, the cheese cloth, and the array of subtlety in colour.
A piece of swirly, mustard and purple, yellow and green fabric from Trinidad goes absolutely perfectly with this piece.

Turned inside out, we've got three pockets. A small one made from the edge of an old table cloth. A large one with party reindeer, fashioned from the bottoms of my daughter Jane's jammy pants. And on the other side, a button up shirt that I bought at the thrift shop that looks way better here than it did draped on the likes of me.
One of Loretta's scarfs brighten up the shoulder strap, and goes really well with the fabric from Trinidad, some corduroy, and a strap of patchwork that needed a home.
This bag measures roughly 12" x 12.5" with a side measurement of ~4 ".
The auction will conclude at 10:00 am cst on Sunday, October 31, 2010.
I was so hoping that this would be one of the bags posted this week. Not sure what the opening bid should be, but I'll start things off at $25.
Oh my. It couldn't possibly be more delightful.
I'll up the ante...
Yeah, she is BACK! Just in time for me to do some Christmas shopping. :)
Oh, this is exciting. $70.
I loved this bag the first moment I saw it!
Beautiful! If I hadn't made my recent purchase this one would be mine!
Too rich for my bank account. But I LOVE LOVE LOVE the purple!
is ... divine...
cheers to you and to Brian!
yea, Melissa of the Chocolate Book! For $80-, you've got yourself a bag!
Woooohoooo! I can't believe that it is mine :)
Beautiful bag, beautiful Floey. I missed your return.
