The League of the Scarlet Pimpernel

Click on any picture for a larger view.

Scarlet, gold, and avocado tapestries make up this rich-as-butter bag. All were donated by my friend Maria (who has exquisite taste).

The side pocket has a snazzy little fringe and the front flap is finished off with two scarlet buttons.

Two inside pockets.

Hmmm... Is it red or is it burgundy? I seriously don't know - it does different things in different lights. Maria -- if you're out there, any comments?

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 8am (pacific) on Friday, June 27th gets the prize! Postage extra (from Abbotsford, BC).

OK, this just in from Maria ... the red has more rust undertones, burgundies are NOT her thing. And that green and red chintz was $100/metre. Yikes.

Hi Jen...I consider this fabric to be "rusty red" as I'm not a big fan of burgundy. Although it does look different in various light situations! Great job on the bag!!! Maria
