Handmade by someone in the 1960’s – 1970’s era, this was a popular tote-style purse during that time. Many were handcrafted and decorated. It’s fun to see where she ran out of one green thread and switched to another – true vintage fashions always have a story to tell. There’s just enough green to get you started toward St. Patrick’s Day.
Back in the day many women made these bags from scratch or from kits. Macrame’ was common. Unless a home wood shop was handy, the handles would be purchased and then she’d go from there in whatever fabric or weaving she chose. Some would even be lined, but usually the handcrafted bags were not. Designs were as original as the people who made them. I like the pretty Spring feeling on this one, and the lavender color.
Hadn’t come across one of these in a while but, you just never know . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
