I’ve had this fabric for a while and have been waiting for the right bag design to come along. When I found I had just enough soft brown leather for the flap and trim and identified a cute embroidery design for the internal slip pocket I couldn’t wait to start!
The external fabric is a linen-type fabric patterned with foxes and cubs. The lining fabric is 100% cotton and the internal slip pocket features a little embroidery of a fox curled up with her cub.
The strap is adjustable and is made from strong cotton webbing with antique brass finish hardware.
As a little extra I decided to make a tassel from the remaining leather which is detachable.
Measuring approximately 10 inches wide by 7 inches tall and 3 inches deep, this bag is both compact and roomy. It fastens with a metallic snap and has an adjustable webbing strap so it can be worn as either a shoulder bag or crossbody. The ideal bag for country pursuits!
P.S. Matching coin purse now available.
