Ozma of Oz

Click on any picture for a larger view.

Ozma rode into Oz on a green magic carpet. My sewing machine would leave me if I tried to sew carpet, so I had to make due with these lovely upholstery pieces.

The main body is made up of a super soft corduroy-like green fabric and features a side cell pocket and two back pockets.

The front flap is the highlight of this bag, made from the coolest upholstery sample of green, blue, gold, something sparkly, and some raised fuzzy bits (I wish my camera would do it justice). It's bordered with the same buttery yellow upholstery sample that the cell pocket is made of.

The straps also utilize some buttery yellow pieces, as well as a white and green striped cotton (thx Shawna). They are lined with a simple off-white, kinda yellow, kinda green piece of cotton that had a totally antique Eatons tag still on it (also from Shawna).

The inside is a delicate floral pink, green and gold cotton and features two pockets.

And there's also a little bit of this and a little bit of that and I'm completely losing track of who has given me what - but it all looks fabulous together!
