This barkcloth bag has quite a story! In another life, this barkcloth was made up into some amazing pillows in my living room. But add one mad dog-named Willow-upset that I had the nerve to go out and run some errands, without her, and voila! Shredded pillows!

Willow knew exactly where to strike-because I LOVED those pillows-made with some of the most beautiful vintage barkcloth ever.

Luckily, I was able to salvage enough barkcloth for the front and handles of this little bag.

♥ Approximate dimensions are 11" wide across the bottom, and 9" wide across the top, 7.5" tall, and 1.5" deep.

♥ This bag is made from one of my own original patterns.

♥ The back, handles, and lining of this little sweetie pie are made from a mid weight leopard print fabric.

♥ I put a small pocket inside this bag-big enough for a lip balm or similar small item. This bag closes securely with a magnetic snap. In addition, the bag is interlined with fusible fleece for just a little bit of added structure.

♥ Two matching vintage geometric buttons are the perfect finishing touch on the front-and the top left button hides a small flaw in the fabric that I could not cut around-and so I covered it up. (Clever little button!)

♥ Spot clean.

♥ Does barkcloth make you go just a little bit crazy? Me too! I think it’s the most beautiful fabric on earth, and those of us who appreciate it are pretty special. It certainly has inspired me to create bags that are not only beautiful, but are heirloom quality as well. That’s the level of commitment I put into every bag I sew. If you’d like to take a look at even more bags that I’ve made with wonderful barkcloth-here is a link back into my shop: snapshotsailors.etsy.com

Please stay and take a look-I’m so glad you are here!
