Stormy, Misty's Foal

Click on any picture for a larger view.

Stormy, Misty's Foal is the color of a storm, blues and browns. The darling brown fabric with the tiny powder blue flowers was donated by my friend, Jill, who is a cowgirl, so reason #2 for the Stormy name. The vintage buttons marching across the flap are the color of Misty's mane... and were donated by my friend, Donna. Thanks girls!

The stunning stitching on this bag sets it apart from all the others. A 2nd hand store jackpot... I found this dark blue denim skirt with the tan colored diamonds, vines and onion domes ALL the way around. Score! I used every inch of it for the flap, the front and the back of the bag. Because of the size of the denim pieces, this bag is slightly shorter than most BFZ bags. It measures 12.5" x 10" x 3.5".

The accent fabric in powder blue (that matches the dainty flowers) is from the early 1970's from my mother's stash. She said it is so old, she can't remember what she made out of it. It is a soft cotton with raised and stitched flowers that almost feels quilted.

Inside the bag is a lovely bright stripe to help you find things inside. There are two large pockets across the inside of the quilted-like light blue material. The edge is trimmed with some vintage Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt pieces and more of the cute brown fabric. There is another antique button tacking the top of the pockets in sunny yellow to match the quilt pieces.

The strap has all of the above mentioned fabrics and measures 42" the way it is tied currently. It can be shortened or lengthened.

Stormy is looking for a cozy stall with other purses to live out the rest of her days.
