Bag with creature comforts
Sometimes winter gets so cold even the animals have to wear clothes.
There’s no Paddington stationed here, but there is one of his bear relatives, along with other woodland cuties - a fox, owl, rabbit, deer and squirrel.
While the sweet little figures give it an autumn or winter feel, the background is a more summery blue.
The 100% polyester fabric, sourced from Tkaniny Karoliny, means it is waterproof in all weathers, easy to clean and durable.
And its base is strengthened with aged Sahara Washpapa, the waterproof mix of latex and paper used in many of my bags, and metal bag feet.
Undo the funky rainbow zip and inside is a red polyester lining with two handy pockets (sourced from New Sewing Dimension.)
The matching red webbing tape and Washpapa Aged Sahara handles and detachable straps mean it has plenty of versatility - either as a handbag, shoulder bag or messenger (crossbody) bag.
Oh, and there is a matching keyring too. How cute is that?
