Messenger Style Bag from Vintage Tea Towels - Wales
Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
This messenger style bag is made from two vintage tea towels and some 1960's fabric. The main body of the bag is a Welsh language picture dictionary on a blue linen background. The side panels and strap are made from a 1970's cotton tea towel with fruit and flowers interspersed with a checquerboard pattern. The bag is lined with a piece of sixties fabric with bright blocks of colour.
These bags are fun and colourful and make use of those brilliant old tea towels that would otherwise languish at the back of the cupboard.
The front flap simply folds over with no fastening and this bag measures approximately 42cm x 30cm.
