I am IN LOVE with this little Bag Eight!
Everything about Bag Eight makes me grin from ear to ear, and while I thought I would find the time to make at least a half dozen more of them (seriously, I have the plain pattern pieces cut and just need to do the mixed media art collages for the fronts!), but at the moment it didn’t really work out that way so it’s a one of a kind that might stay that way.
I don’t know anyone who isn’t hot under the collar for a great round bag – so much versatility and this one is durable enough to be a daily use bag, if you’re so inclined.
The front panel collage art is totally random, but sometimes the pieces go together in ways that I didn’t even imagine when I sat down in the studio and started cutting pieces and fitting them together. This is the part of creating Bag Eight that is soooo time consuming, and I don’t want to make run of the mill bags that you can pick up anywhere.
This bag’s got an absolutely gorgeous interior; after all I couldn’t whip out a bag front like this and fail to do it justice with the inside, now could I? A fashionable teal print with LOADS of contrast to the outer body. It’s got an interior zip pocket and a slip pocket for good measure. The caramel colored faux croc vegan leather adds just the right amount of insouciant attitude, and this bag stands out in a crowd for sure.
The finished bag measures 9″ in diameter and the gusset is constructed of the vegan leather to give a little extra protection if you have to sit it down somewhere less than pristine. The hardware is antique brass with metal zips.
The finished diameter is 9″, the depth is 3.5″ and the strap is 24″ long. Retail price for Bag Eight is $249.
Product photos are on the way, soon! I promise!
