Shaped shoulder bag made from vintage 1960s floral fabric

Shaped shoulder bag made from vintage 1960s floral fabric

Love this

Description

The fabric design on this practical shoulder bag looks so fresh, it's hard to believe it is the classic vintage furnishing fabric Daisy Chain. Designed by Pat Albeck in the 1960s,its charm lies in the amazing strong purple and green colourway, and the geometric flowers so typical of the period. Although this is a roomy bag, its scooped out design gives a neat fit under your arm. It has an internal pocket,and snaps shut with a magnetic fastener. It would make a lovely present for a vintage textile fan.

The fabric is first sewn onto canvas to give it strength, but it is still soft.
The lining is made from a complimentary bright green cotton and the curved edge is finished with a wide facing.
There is an internal pocket for all your bits and bats, and a magnetic snap fastening keeps your belongings safe inside.
My little embroidered tag at the corner finishes it off.
Taking into account the curve, the strap measures 67 cm
The bag measures 34 cm across at its widest point, tapering to 30 cm at its narrowest
From the lowest part of the scoop, it measures 32 cm to the base which is 4cm wide
This bag was handmade by myself, using one of my own patterns.

I like to reuse where possible. Your bag will be sent out using clean, recycled packaging.
It will be posted by Royal Mail 2nd class signed for, and therefore will need a signature on arrival.

Inspiration

I love this fabric, and if I ever spy a corner of it poking out at a car boot, jumble sale or charity shop, I am powerless to walk by. Great vintage design, still looking fresh today
