This gorgeous purse is made of multi colored striped “medium weight” cotton duck dcor fabric a Richloom print designed by John Wolf sewn with a center pleat design allowing for a generous interior.
The handle/strap is made of the black cotton duck fabric same as the purse boarder. It is sewn double-sided and attached by (2) black 1 ¼" rings with a side loop. I have made the handle/strap long enough to provide a generous 11.5” drop to center, making this purse perfect as an “over the shoulder” handbag.
To provide this luscious bag its flare I’ve added a black belt with a antique gold buckle secured by loops that have machine embroidered design.
Gypsy’s lining is the same black cotton duck dcor fabric as the border and handles. It has (2) large pockets made out of same striped fabric used for the body of the purse with multiple compartments and closes with a magnetic snap.
I have added a key ring: The keyring is 4” long, has a stainless clasp, antique gold chain,
acrylic olive green beads, antique gold filigree beads with a diamond shape filigree medallion making it the perfect accent with my new beautiful Gypsy purse.
Size: 17" wide x 13" height
Prominent Colors: Black, Olive, Gold & Spice Red Stripes
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
