The bag was inspired by a 1940's handbag in one my vintage booklets.
I used a piece of 1950's Barkcloth.
I love the closure style.
A view of the front.
I used a very rigid stabilizer to get a round shape.
I fell a bit short on a perfect circle though.
I should have doubled the stabilizer.
I did a bit of surface stitching around some of the design
and added layered vintage buttons
for the loop to pull over.
Each end has this embellishment.
I used a piece of the feed sack lining and made an abstract cut
which after the fact I realized I had created wings. :0)
And then more layered buttons.
And here's the vintage feed sack lining.
This is the page from the vintage booklet.
I think this is a timeless design, don't you?
I'm sharing my handbag with Quiltstory for Fabric Tuesday
Hope everyone is having a good day
and staying cool!
Thanks so much for visiting with me.
