Trails West

Click on any picture for a larger view.

I had fun "rounding up" the ideas and fabrics for TRAILS WEST. The focal point on the denim flap is a red paisley scarf tied with black velvet and a silver concho buckle.

My friend Cheryl supplied the classy Ralph Lauren jean dress that I used for the pockets under the flap. The pockets and designer buttons for the front pouch are all usable.

The tooled imitation leather that adorns the bottom, straps and bag accents was a very timely donation from Jordan and Breanne. Thanks so much!

I used two wool jackets, one black, and the other red with a black velvet collar. The velvet and jazzy red cording dressed up the cell pocket.

The cherry print, black and white polka dot and red and white checked materials added a nice western touch for the lining. I topped the inside pocket off with a red, wood hand-painted button. Makes a girl want to giddy-up.
