SOLD – One of a kind, handmade purse



These are the bags that I make from scraps, old linens, and a recycled blue Ikea bag. There are many layers involved, hand stitching, FUN energy and loads of pockets. (can’t have enough pockets!) So to answer your question, yes, the bag will be a bit crinkly (since it’s sewn over the Ikea bag. But I will assure that it’s padded nicely, so for me, I don’t notice it at all). The cushioned straps measure about 25″. Overall the bag is roughly 16″ across the top, 11″ on the sides and 10″ across the bottom. Please note that there are some raw edges on this bag, which means there will be what I refer to as shreds. You can either trim them off or let them be. I personally think it adds character. The purse has already been washed and dried for a very soft and worn look. My idea is to create the bags in a way so that they will be used and not considered too precious or reserved for special occasions. There are pockets on the front (and 2 small pockets to the left of the focal image), on the back and also on each side inside the bag. I have carefully described the bag so that you understand that it is meant to be imperfect and loved as seen. This bag is one of a kind. I’m sorry, I do not offer refunds on my art.

Artsy bag $185 plus $17.55 (priority flat rate box, comes with tracking and insurance)
