A Color of [Her] Own

Click on any picture for a larger view.

Here is a ladybug bag with a color all it's own.

This fashionable carrier bag was designed from a valance and a chenille robe from my friend Connie and her daughter Becca. Connie gave me the valance and then Becca walked by with the lime green robe that matched. I jokingly commented that the greens matched perfectly and VIOLA! the ladybug/chenille bag. A selfless sacrifice. [Editor's note: we really meant it when we warned you about hanging on to your garments!]

The bag is made of cotton chenille and lightweight cotton fabrics. There are three sizes of red gingham and two colors of green gingham. The entire valance was used, so there are 3.5 ladybugs resting on the bag.

Two large pockets inside and a cell pocket outside help with storage.

Embellishments include black satin ribbon on the front flap, polka-dot ribbon on the cell phone pocket as well as lime green and black button accents. This is a lightweight version of our sturdier carrier bags. It would be ideal as a purse or vacation activity bag, but won't do for a laptop or heavy school books.

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 9th gets the BAG! Postage extra (from Phoenix, AZ). This bag was created by Linda.
