This artsy bag has waves of softly blending colours across the front of it that is evocative of the buckskin fields and blue skies of the prairies ... or perhaps the American south-west. The base fabric of this bag is a warm coffee brown linen/rayon blend with the front having an added panel of high quality cotton that has been stitched with variegated threads. There is a large tassel of hand spun yarns and beads on each side of the front with a cluster of beads hand stitched nearby ... another drift of golden beads follows a curved stitching line in the "sky". The writing on the front panel is words that are all run together so it doesn't actually "read" but there are words and phrases that might have come from someone's description of the countryside around her.

This purse is larger than my usual little bags and is a modified pouch-style messenger bag with free motion quilting on the design and in the background. The pouch opens at the top, which then folds over to become the flap of the bag (the flap itself is part of the pouch). The back of the bag has additional free motion stitching in brown on brown so that you have the option of flipping the top over the other way to wear this as a plain bag. The bag is lined in a golden caramel fabric ... there is an interlining of quilt batting for added stability and structure. The edge of the flap on the backside curves up just slightly so that it doesn't peek below the front edge.

The bag has a 1-1/2" (4cm) gusset on the bottom and the straps are stitched securely to the sides of the bag at the place where the top folds over. This bag would be large enough to carry your book or iPad and the comfortable 1" (2.5cm) wide brown cotton webbing strap will sit nicely on your shoulder. The top of the bag folds over to become the flap of the purse with no additional closure.

The stats:
Strap: 1" wide cotton webbing
Drop from the shoulder: 16-1/2" (42cm)
Approximate Measurement: 11" (28cm) wide and high
Colours: brown, denim blue, turquoise, gold, tan, black, grey, cranberry, soft violet
OOAK: One of a kind ... you won't see another one like it

This bag has been reduced from $85 to $51 ... a saving of 40%! The final photo shows a model wearing another of my purses of a similar size.
