Hey everyone, I thought I would share some pics of the commission I just finished for Auntie B, a Victorian Travel bag!
The bag is made from black linen and trimmed with cotton ribbon (as opposed to the original, which had twill tape and featherstitching). It?s basically a rectangle that?s been sewn into a tube with two circles attached to the end, so that it looks like a duffle bag.
The handles are also made of the ribbon, but two layers of it, and the bag closes with 5 black glass buttons:
And the interior is this neat tan, red, and black repro cotton:
I'm making myself one, as well, and they should get a lot of use at our camping event next weekend!
