Albany, New York...
I made this large bag for my neighbor who lived next door to me. I was honored when she asked me to make her three bags to take back home with her when she and her family were returning to their home in Japan after having spent three years living in the USA while her husband worked in the US representing a Japanese company. I asked her to select fabrics from my stash and to select styles from my collection of bags and this is one of them.
This bag is made with a heavy cotton home dec fabric, interfaced with fusible fleece and decorated with a white button that I had been saving for who knows what – it just seemed to go so well with this bag.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
