There is nothing more classic than graphic, black and white fabric. The color palette for this bag was inspired by a scarf I bought myself at an estate sale a while back.

The name of this bag is "Paparazzi". Why? This bag includes a matching green, sheer scarf which you can whip out of your bag to cover your face when the press simply won't leave you alone. (Or you can just tie it on the purse handles for a jaunty look. Or do what I do, and use it to cover your turkey neck.)

The purse measures approximately 16" wide at the top, about 11" at the bottom, about 10" high without the handles and 3 3/4" deep. The handles add about 4". This bag is a fabulous shape, easy to get in and out and holds plenty, but not so large that things get lost. There is a self-fabric pocket on the inside for your phone or lipstick or both. I have added new chrome feet to the stiffened bottom as well as a magnetic clasp to update the pattern, which is a vintage 1970s pattern with a couple of tweaks. I actually remade this bag to include a super stiff structure so that the sides of the bag would not droop from the weight of the handles like most fabric bags. (See photo 3.)

This fabric was new old stock, still had the tags on it when I got it. The lining and handle are new materials. The button is a oner that I found in an estate sale, and it has a wonderful art deco shape to it. This bag is one-of-a-kind!

At Odds and Nipperkins, my goal is to take vintage fabrics and findings and to make beautiful new items from them. The ultimate in recycled style, and this bag is no exception, although it is exceptional! Please note that no item will go on an Odds and Nipperkins bag unless it is in clean, excellent condition! I work too hard on these bags to have them be anything less than what I would expect as a customer. Yes, these bags cost more than you might pay for a fabric bag at a discount store, but a ton of time goes into securing the best materials for these bags, and I make a real effort for each bag to be well-planned and unique. And vintage finds like these wonderful fabrics can cost a great deal, even at estate sales. There is no assembly line here. Each bag is carefully cut, one at a time, for the best design placement of the fabrics. Then each bag is sewn, one at a time until complete before the next bag makes it anywhere near my sewing machine. The lining is sewn in by hand to ensure a nice fit.
