One of my new handmade bag for the Fall/Winter 2009-2010...Purple Gaze. I used microsuede (or microfiber) fabric as an animal-friendly alternative. This fabric is amazing. It is soft, durable and attractive. It is 100% polyester so it is easy to clean. The backing is made of 100% cotton weave. I normally make structured bags that could stand on its own but I am liking this slouchy look. Such a relaxed look...so boho.
Measurements (in inches):
Heights: 23" (from strap to bottom), 11" (shortest exterior), 9 (from zipper closure)
Strap: 12" drop, 29" around
Inside: Zip & Patch pockets, swivel hook for keys
I attached slim magnetic snaps on the sides to allow the gusset to be extended...or not. Your choice.
I used jean-stitching on all exterior seams and rims. Click on photo above to take a closer look. Also, you can see the texture of the fabric.
It is available at my Etsy store and will be posted soon on Paco+Lupe as well.
