I designed the Tootsie due to requests for a zipper closure in the Tallullah. It's the same bag with a few small changes made to allow me to put a zipper across the top. I've offered it for a while, but, this is the first opportunity I've had to make a bag for the shop.
As regular readers have heard before, this is another fabric I loved and couldn't wait to use. I started it when I made the Geisha Britta Shoppers, I blogged about, a few weeks ago. I had most of the work done but got held up with the trim selection.
I had this option, plus a few others. At the time they all seemed possible so I set the whole project aside. It kept calling me so, yesterday, I pulled it out again. It was funny, the trim that I used was so far and away the best choice I don't know why I even considered anything else. At the time the other options looked good , but with the passage of a few weeks the leaves, paired with the new, but vintage, gimp seemed custom made for the fabric.
I love the overall feel of the bag, lots of motion, and the colors are unusual. This print comes in other colorways but the vibrant softness ( can I even put those words together?) of this one, caught my eye. This is a one of a kind bag you can find in my shop by clicking here
