Note on color: The purple corduroy is actually purple - like the crayon (not burgandy or plum). And the red is very red - like the crayon (not orange).

Bid on this bag by leaving your name and a bid in the comments section. Bidding starts at $25 and increases by whole $s please. Highest bidder at 9pm (PST) / 10pm (MST) on Saturday, January 31st gets the BAG! Postage extra.

The Owl and the Pussycat is a dainty denim number that would be perfect for taking to sea in a beautiful pea green boat. It is also the perfect size for holding some honey and plenty of money wrapped up in a five-pound note.

The O & P is a smaller version of our typical Bag for Zaza. It measures 11" across, 9.5" tall and 3" wide. The knotless strap measures 41".

The front flap and the back of the bag are adorned with embroidery on denim in purple, red, white, lime green, light blue and sage green. The pattern is butterflies and flowers.






The main accent fabric is a lush purple corduroy and I saved a pocket from the blazer for under the flap. One denim pocket from the jean skirt was used to be the cell pocket. The cell pocket is also the right size if you buy a ring from the nose of a pig, or need to carry your runcible spoon.

The red fabric that is under the flap, on the edge of the flap and is the sides inside the bag is a thick woven... almost burlap material. It's very sturdy but soft at the same time.

The straps are denim on the outside, with a saucy flash of red, and purple denim on the inside so it's soft on your shoulder.





Inside the bag is a light purple denim fabric and two large pockets of striped cotton. The pockets are topped with a satin ribbon with large red and purple flowers. There is a dainty red button securing the pockets.

This would be the ideal bag to dance by the light of the moon, the moon, the moon.

I need to comment on the color. It is NOT maroon. It is the same purple color as the purple crayon in the Crayola box. I think it looks maroon because of my daughter's sweatshirt.

NOT maroon or burgandy or rust.

PURPLE!

And that's RED. Like a ladybug... not orange like an orange. Good grief.

The closest color match is the photo with the book in it. But it is a bit dark.

Once again, I shamelessly add that the purse looks WAY better in real life. :o)

Is it just me - or are there others out there who have no clue what a "runcible spoon" is?!

I believe it's for dining on mince and slices of quince ... if my memory serves me correctly.

Jillybean said...

Hold the pickles, hold the lettuces. Special orders don't upset us. All we ask is that you let us make them YOUR way. :o)
