'La basse-court' (the farmyard) messenger bag has a fresh eclectic style. Made from a mix of old, recycled and new materials, it is perfect to carry your whole life, or take on your thrifting adventures granny chic stylee...!

Heavy pink floral cotton printed in the heart of the Welsh countryside makes most of the body of the bag. It is combined with other good quality green cottons, also from Wales, some vintage lace and vintage linen embroidered with chickens. The strap is made from recycled martial arts belts giving it a nice sturdy feel.

The three chickens are freehand machine embroidered using a basic sewing machine fitted with a darning foot. I first sketched the chickens on paper, then embroidered them freehand using black thread.

The interior is fully lined with natural linen.

It measures approximately 13.5" x 14" x 3" (34cm x 36cm x 7cm) excluding the strap, which itself is approx. 17" (43cm) from the top of the bag to the shoulder.
