Espresso for a Woman's Spirit II

Click on any picture for a larger view.
*** Description updated Wed morning. ***

Espresso for a Woman’s Spirit II has bold colors of burgundy, gold, rust, red, browns and pinks. I hope there is some gal out there that loves these rich wintery colors.

The main fabric used is a multicolor textured, and sturdy upholstery fabric... I added gold braid, fringed the fabric and put a velvet edge on the flap. The under flap is a taffeta-like fabric patterned with burgundy squares and also edged with contrasting velvet.

The front has a large double pocket secured by a unique button. The back has four squares of the fabrics used throughout the bag.

The cell pocket and the strap are decorated with the self fabric fringe and gold braid.

The inside will wow you with a Waverly bright yellow flowered, embossed print from my generous friend, Cheryl. To add a little interest I cut the square patterned material on the bias for the sides and bottom of the lining. There is a large pocket divided in three with bright yellow buttons sewn on the velvet trim.

The upscale textured fabrics are sure to uplift the spirit of all who enjoy the Espresso dream.

To answer your question Linda -- I got tired of cleaning off the glass table and seeing dirt underneath that I couldn't reach SOOO! I got a greal good buy on the tablecloth that just happens to match my latest bag. Now I have to deal with fading. Oh Well! Love you, Mom
