French Market Bag with tons of vintage laces!

Imagine yourself wandering around the mall, neighborhood shops, or at an elegant Sunday Brunch...and you're feeling so STYLISH and CHIC carrying this really fun French Market Bag!

It has a roomy pocket on the back side, perfect for iPad, tablet, phone.  Another sweet, trimmed with rose lace, pocket under the front flap. Perfect for your keys or lipstick. And one more lacy pocket on the inside perfect for your secret treasures you like to tote around.

Bag measures approximately 10"x10". The cross body strap is made with three different vintage laces, and measures 52" for a comfortable fit.

Many layers of vintage laces, doilies and trims gives this tote a romantic essence. Actually, there are SIX layers of vintage lace and doilies on the front flap/lid. Another SIX layers of lace and doilies enhance the front of the purse, under the flap. The entire body of the purse has been crafted using one vintage crochet runner!

Keeping with the theme of vintage fibers, the inside is completely lined with a sweet vintage cotton, little roses and nosegays.

The flower on the front is made from vintage wedding dress satin. The button is a lovely Czech glass, hand painted button. The bow is crinkled seam ribbon, dyed to a very soft pinkish tint that picks up the pink in the pink and green rickrack lace along the top. One of my favorite vintage doilies grace the bottom of the bag. The rickrack trim was crochet right into the lovely lace edging which has been up cycled from a vintage pillow case!
