I dearly love this bag. It looks good wherever it goes, with that big bow on the back and the sophisticated shorter straps. It’s just as big as the others, so it’s equally functional, but perhaps a bit more elegant.
This bag made me smile the whole time I was making it, from its design all the way through to the last stitch. Sometimes, I turn it inside out because the inside fabric is uplifting, too.
Then, I went nuts and lined it with my these funky zebras. Oops, giraffes, I mean. Well, are they zebras or giraffes?
This was incredibly fun to design and make. I had a few scraps left from one of Mimi’s favorite pair of jeans plus just enough of that wild, crazy red fabric to play with. That yellow flower in the middle panel is a pocket.
