Owl Moon

Click on any picture for a larger view.

Owl Moon is the denim hippy bag you have been waiting for. It's Bohemian to the core. This fabulous fabric was a thrift store find in the form of a long dress that was handmade in Malaysia. It has tiny mirrors all over it with turquoise hand stitching holding each in place. Truly a piece of art.

The front, back and insides of the bag are constructed of rich blue denim giving the bag some weight. The turquoise fabric is cotton and has been reinforced with iron-on interfacing for the sides and bottom of the bag. This is not a super-duper heavy bag; it is a lighter weight version of last week's mammoth messenger bags.

The cell pocket is accented with golden fuzzy fabric and two turquoise shell buttons. The golden fabric is also used for the lining. There are pairs of the shiny buttons from the sea inside on the pockets and under the flap. Also inside is the bluebird of happiness. This was a donation in the form of a flour sack. Cool!

Across the back of the bag are two handy pockets with ease of accessibility. Altogether there are seven pockets on the groovy sack.

The straps on this bag were the sash of the dress, so they are slightly thinner than the usual BFZ straps.... but OOOOH so long.

Owl Moon is the perfect bag for traveling. It is lightweight and roomy. Plenty of pockets for passports, plane tickets, snacks and in case you end up stranded in the wilderness, you can signal overhead aircraft with the tiny mirrors and be rescued.
