The Secret Garden

Click on any picture for a larger view.

I'm SO excited about this bag. As you can see, it's NOT a messenger bag, it's a tote. A very SNAZZY tote! I've become a bag watcher and the shops are full of totes of all shapes and sizes. Please let me know what you think of me introducing this new style of bag to BFZ.

The main body of this bag is a heritage pink eyelet from my grandmother's sewing chest. It seems a bit washed out in the photos; it's such a lovely, true pink - dare I say a perfect pink?

The tote measures approximately 13" x 18" with 24" straps.

The straps and the band around the top of the tote is a minty blue-green decorator fabric with coordinating pink, brown, and green floral patterns (thanks Ashleigh). Oh yes, and a pineapple - I had to throw in that last pic to show you the funky pineapple.

The bag and straps are lined with a simple floral cotton in coordinating colours (I forget who to thank for this fabric). The roomy interior features two pockets trimmed with a delicate blue plaid from my mother's stash.

*Sigh* I'm not a pink person, but for this bag I might become one. A final note, there will not be another pink eyelet bag - there's only a couple teeny pieces of this super special fabric left.

Bid on this bag by leaving your name and a bid in the comments section. Bidding starts at $25 and increases by whole $s please. Highest bidder at 8am (PDT) on Saturday, August 2nd gets the BAG! Postage extra (from Abbotsford, BC). This bag was created by Jennie.

Oh my goodness - you're all too kind. More totes are definitely in BFZ's future. Judy - I'm SO not an innovator - I just know good ideas when I see them ;)
