i just spent the day making this bag which i then packed and posted to a buyer in canada. i came up with the idea for this bag last year and still quite like it. i use this very fifties looking woven kimono fabric with roses, plus natural linen, and i added a little stitching in matching colour. here is the result. ever so surprised how much a tiny bit of hand stitching adds to an item, be it a bag, a piece of clothing, etc.
