Just when you thought that aunt Bertha's Sunday goin' ta meetin' broach had gone out of fashion.
What you didn't think of is how great the broach looks when you pair it up with some needlework, a pair of plaid fortrel pants, some velvet, and a bit of upholstery fabric.
Never thought of that now, did ya.
That bit of really detailed needlework used to say something about the road to a friends house, and it used to hang up in my house. But I really love the way it looks right there atop a bag. Helps you enjoy the detail so much better.
I particularly love the piece with the sort of raised velveteen. It reminds me of cushions on my auntie's couch.
The long shoulder strap piece in plaid is nearly the length of a pair of polyester pants.
Could we bring back the day of the plaid polyester pant, pleeeease?
Here is Bertha all bent out of shape... er... turned inside out. Helps you get a clear picture of her pockets, which number four on the inside, and two beneath the flap.
10" across and 12" down.
