Giveaways are so much fun that I've decided I'm going to have a few more, one at a time, for a few weeks to pass on some stuff that I'm currently not using, in preparation for my cross-continent move. This week I'm offering up this unused shoulder bag I made from vintage fabric. A few years back, I used to have a stall at a handmade market in East London and have made a squillion of these particular bags in my time, usually in vintage fabric scored from charity shops of ebay. I have used these bags every day myself for years now, so can vouch for their practicality.
The outer fabric is a sturdy synthetic of unknown type, probably from the late 1960's/early 1970's, in shades of purple, lilac, burgundy and white. It is fully lined with vintage floral printed cotton in coordinating lilacs, pinks and white. The black label you can see shows the name of my little accessories brand, 'Electric Pussycat'.
If you would like this bag, either for yourself or as a gift for someone, and can promise me it will actually get used, then here's what you do: leave a comment on this post completing the sentence 'I would like this bag because.........'. I'll pick my favourite at midnight Thursday 29th April. Hint: a successful answer has to make me giggle. Good luck!
