I made this bag out of a recycled vintage wool Windsmoor coat found in Ilminster, Somerset, and lined it with a remnant of Liberty Tana Lawn cotton in a floral design of greens, blues, and mauves.
It features an inside double pocket, is open at the top and the handles are sized so it can be carried in the hand or over the shoulder. Created in a box shape, it is 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.
If your bag gets grubby after a few months of bouncing around on public transport and out shopping, you can machine wash it on a gentle wool setting. All the materials I use are machine washed before the stitching starts, so they are used to it.
approx. 29 cm high by 41 cm wide at the top
with an 16 cm by 25 cm base
(contents not included!)
There are also some pouches and pencil cases available with the same fabric; see 'Pouches' and 'Pencil Cases' sections.
