Mary Blair South American Bag

Mary Blair Felt Applique Handbag

By Kevin Kidney, 2000 © Disney


This is another hand-made gift for a dear friend who not only loves Mary Blair, but is an unbelievable artist and painter herself. The illustration was published as a Hallmark greeting card in 1948, and you can find a picture of the painting in the book "The Architecture of Reassurance" (1997) edited by Karal Ann Marling.


Sorry I don't have a picture of the entire bag. At least before giving the bag away, I had the foresight to flop it down on a color xerox machine and capture this much of it.


Anyway, I always say, if you can't find that perfect gift for someone in a store, you really need to make it yourself.
