I made this bag out of a recycled checked Pendleton tweed jacket in various shades of purples, blues, and with threads of dark pink. It is lined with cotton taken from a Liberty shirt in purples, pinks and white. The original flapped jacket pocket from the jacket is incorporated into the outside of the design, and there is another pocket inside. It fastens at the top with a vintage button and the handles are sized so you can carry it over the shoulder or in the hand.
Robust, practical and perfect for stuffing with books, umbrellas, water, purses, make-up bags, random shopping etc.
Because each of my bags started as something else (a wool kilt, a tweed jacket, a cotton shirt) they come with a unique numbered card that shows what they used to be, and where they came from – a sort of bag birth certificate.
All the fabrics I use are washed before the stitching starts, and you can put this in a gentle wool wash if necessary.
