Another sweet Kantha cloth purse...

Welcome friends.... here's my latest Kantha cloth purse currently being listed in my Etsy Shop.  

Sweet bag measures approximately 9" wide by 10" long. Created by collaging fabrics from five different Vintage Kantha quilts! 

What is Kantha? The Kantha quilt originated in Bangladesh and the easter states of India, where women stitch together layer upon layer of old saris to up-cycle the mostly colorful fabrics into fun quilts. As a crafter, I cut these quilts into manageable sizes to create these stylish bohemian bags, totes, and/or purses.

Lots of fun colors...and this bag will go with just about everything! Nice long 50" strap is perfect for your cross-body ease. This sturdy strap is two colors of vintage gimp trim sewn together with a decorative stitch. 

Fully lined, it also has a 4x6" interior pocket.
