I made a few small bags last week, but this is my first ‘real’ bag since I returned home. I love the deep teal colour of this bag and the lovely texture of the leather. It is made from a remnant which was just enough–the exterior pocket and strap are lined with black leather from a pair of pants. The lining is a great green and white ticking, screen printed with ‘the bird with attitude’. It measures 13″x11″x3″ and the strap is 38″ long so fits nicely across the body, my favourite way to carry a bag. This is my second bag in this style–Carissa–named because she inspired the first of this series, the grape bag.
