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.
Wow, you have gotten alot done since your return. That bag is beautiful, I love the colour, style and of course the name.
Delicious!!! I love the fruit names. The ticking is incredible, with the bird silk screen onto it. So personal. Are you selling any of these bags?
The bag is fantastic! I love the “Carissa-Grape” and get compliments on it all over town! The blueberry is a great addition to the collection. I love the double inside pocket and I use the outside pocket for easy access to my phone. It is the perfect size and the splash of colour inside puts a smile on my face =) I am so lucky to have such amazing talent in the family. XO
Wow, I can’t believe you made another bag since I said adieu at the airport! It’s gorgeous. I love your birdbrain motif and the rich colours you use. As our friend Isabelle would say, it’s BEA-U-TI-FUL. One day I want to be the proud owner of a birdbrain original, so just let me know how to sign up on the wait-list. 🙂
PS I’m already home-sick for France and the great times we shared.
Wow – I’m so excited about your website! I love this bag – it seems so practical and Carrissa’s comments as an owner would confirm it is a winner in both style and function. Hope also to be proud owner of a birdbrain original. Going to check out the rest of the site!
This bag is brilliant. I love the colour, the texture, the materials, the shape, the proportions, how practical Carissa finds it, in short, everything about it! Perfection!
Congratulations on the blog, your creations, your recent travel and your ventures.
