Funky Fabric Bags

A Little Bit About Funky Fabric Bags

Perfect small gift for a Teenager or Teenager at heart - Wrist Bags and Shoulder Bags.
I have delved into my stash of "vintage" fabrics for these novel small handbags.  They each are fully lined, and big enough to zip away small treasures - mobile phone, small purse, keys or makeup.

The "pyramid" wrist bags are cut from one rectangular piece of fabric - twice as long as it is wide.  The shoulder bags are made of one long rectulanger piece of fabric stitched "back around itself".

(An endeavour is made to replace stock with a similar item as it is sold - depending on availability of fabric)
