Very Pretty Applique Bird Bag With Pleats and Faux Leather Handles in Olive Green. YUM

This is my lovely applique bird bag.


My beautiful bag is handmade by me- I am the creative person behind my shop! It is made in a natural coloured linen fabric, a gorgeous piece of printed linen and a fun spotty fabric. My bag features a cheeky bird that I have appliqued from many Liberty printed cottons. But I haven't stopped there....Oh! No! I have contrasted my applique bird with an over sized turquoise spotty button brooch and with lovely fabric that makes up the pleat in the front.



As I have designed this bag myself my aim was to have something that is functional as well as being fun and unusual but also looking fantastic. Therefore I have incorporated pleats into the front and back of the bag. The pleat in the front is made in a colourful contrasting spotty fabric (pic 3), the pleat in the back is made in the natural coloured linen. Pleats make the bag nice and roomy while looking FAB.


I have added two olive green contrasting handles to this bag and I think they give this bag a little bit of designer quality while being strong and nice to hold. I think they contrast nicely with the oversized button brooch, while tying in and complimenting the other colours and fabrics.


My bag measures approx 35.5cms/14inches at its widest part- which is the bottom. It is 32cms/12inches in length. It has an approximate opening off 20cms/8inches.

The straps measures 33cms/13inches long.

It fastens with a magnetic clasp ensuring that your bits and bobs are secure.

I have lined it with a yummy botanical print and added a 'bellows pocket' which will allow plenty of room for your mobile phone or lippy etc (see the 5th pic). I have also sewn a wadding inside to keep it plush.


Use my bag to carry around your favourite items, your cherished books, note pads and pens or to just look gorgeous!
