Love You Forever

Your little girl will LOVE YOU FOREVER when she lays her little eyes on this Holly Hobbie quilted jean purse. This bag is a vintage delight. The quilted Holly Hobbie fabric that lines the interior, peeks out the top, and makes up the straps is a remnant from a skirt my mother made for me when I was eight years old.... almost an antique. It is nicely quilted and my mother lovingly made a full length skirt which I remember feeling quite "bell-ish" in. Holly Hobbie is seen hugging on her friends, climbing over fences, pushing her baby in a carriage, picking apples and stepping on stones in a stream. As Darla's daughter says, this is the "Old" Holly Hobbie. (Old School!)

The bitty denim skirt-overalls were a donation from Darla. Thank you! The chest flap is inside the bag as a large pocket as well as the denim pocket on the flap, so two-for-the-price-of-one. It is accented by two bright pink buttons.

The outside of the bag has been tastefully decorated with any and everything that matched from my bonus box. There are pink ruffles, heart shaped and vintage buttons, quilted heart patches, polka-dot grosgrain ribbon, satin ribbon, ric-rac, and flowered lace. The bottom edge is fringed denim.

All the original pockets on the skirt are functional as I only decorated the edges of them. There is room for lipstick, a mirror, a few shiny pennies, Polly Pocket and her friends, as well as extra jewelry and a Barbie bling-bling cell phone. The back pocket on the right side has pink satin ribbon with the words "smooch hug kiss love" over and over. Perfect for the little love.

The dimensions are 15" across the fringed bottom, 11" across the top, 12" high. The quilted straps are 16" long.
