Checked woollen fabric zip up shoulder bag
This little shoulder bag is designed and made from a wonderful old checked woollen fabric. It has a chunky zip closure, and fits neatly under your arm. A compact shape, but still roomy enough for all those essentials and a little bit more!
It would make a lovely gift for a friend, or as a winter holiday bag.

The fabric is first stitched onto canvas to give it some body.
It measures 30 cm wide at the bottom, tapering to 25 cm at the top.
It is 20 cm tall.
There is a 25 cm chunky beige plastic zip
It is lined with old fashioned striped ticking
There is an inside pocket, so you’ll always know where your keys are…..
There is a seam at either end of the bottom, which gives it a 4 cm wide base
There are 2 shoulder straps each measuring 70 cm
There is a clutch of 2 large vintage wooden buttons and 1 metal one on the front of the bag
It is finished off with one of my embroidered name tags.

I like to reuse as much as possible. Your bag will arrive wrapped in clean, recycled packaging.
It will be posted out to you by signed for Royal Mail 2nd class, and will require a signature.


I have collected old and beautiful fabrics since I worked as a theatre wardrobe mistress. This wonderful checked wool was bought at a sale in a pop up pub! It looks so lovely made up into bags. There is a matching little bucket bag in this fabric also in my shop right now.
