A year or two ago friends came for a sewing weekend. One of our number brought everything in a bag, which had a simple but unusual design. We rather admired the bag, and has a good look at it, and sort of stored up the idea for later...
Now is 'later'!
I happened to spot some rather attractive fabric, 100% linen, going for a rather bargain price up at Abakhan. Lovely linen with ELEPHANTS all over!
Well, perhaps a good bit of that landed in my basket? and just perhaps, it was meant to be a bag... Some details are rather different, but, in essence, it is the 'Leonie bag'.
