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 8pm (pacific) on Monday, April 27th gets the BAG! Postage extra.

Words From A Fearless Heart is a bag with attitude. The book is a collection of wit, wisdom and whimsy from Laura Ingalls Wilder.... and the bag sort of reminds me of one she may have sported (minus the fringe trim). Here is a luscious burgundy purse with pizazz and style all wrapped into one. The fabrics, inside and out, are upholstery velvets, so the bag is thick and durable. I think the fabrics are from Donna B. Thank you!

The outside pocket is trimmed with some flashy braid from Darla adorned with flowers and beads. It has exciting fringe on the top and bottom that lends to the gypsy look (or shabby? or chic?) I couldn't decide if I should put a button on the front pocket or not. So it will be an option for the highest bidder. I do have a cool square button that matches the beads on the trim. So you decide.

Inside is mostly burgundy velvet with the exception of the pockets being a paisley coordinating light-weight velvet.




The purse has an oval bottom so there is lots of storage room inside. The bottom measures 6.25" across and 13" long. The bag itself stands 12" tall. The straps are 16" long, perfect for over your arm.... and over your shoulder only if you have skinnier arms than I do.

I planned to put a magnetic clasp inside to hold it shut, but realized I forgot to put it in, after I took the pictures. So it WILL have a silver metal, magnetic clasp.... eventually.

The square button was balancing there for the photo. I do have silk flowers that I put buttons over the top of... like the pink and orange bag up this week. I can email several choices if you'd like.

A vintage button large or small, dark as the bag or light as the trim, would be nice. A flower shaped vintage button even nicer.
If none, no worry.
Thanks

Congrats, JA. You have choices with this bag. Do you want a magnetic closure inside at the top of the bag? Do you want a button on the front pocket?
