The floral tapestry upholstery piece that makes up so much of this bag was a thrift store find. It's heavily textured with browns, golds and creams, on an ivory background. It is featured on the front, back, and flap of the bag.
The flap also show-cases a piece of navy-blue and gold upholstery from a stack of samples donated by Melanie G.
The sides and bottom of the bag are pieced from a fuzzy navy-blue upholstery sample and a heavily textured brown and gold sample from Susan F.
The side pocket, back double pockets, inside double pockets, and straps are made from a navy-blue fabric (I'm not sure if it's linen or cotton) and lined with a blue and cream floral rayon from a skirt donated by my mom.
Both the back pockets and the inside pockets are accented with old copper buttons that smelled like pennies while I was sewing them on. Several button donations have been blended together in my stash, but I think these came from Grandma Anita.
The flap and body of the bag are lined with a fun and sturdy gingham checked navy print donated by my co-worker, Marjorie T.
