Vermilion Red Bag!

Vermilion - such a lovely word and such a gorgeous colour! This vintage vermilion red binca work in black and white has been given new life as a lined and pocketed bag with a matching detachable flower pin!
When I found it, the piece of work was complete, but appeared to have never been used. The stitches are so even and beautiful!
 
The bag is lined with thrifted cotton print and the pocket inside is highlighted with a  vintage lace motif!
I feel particularly noble when I am able to find and reuse vintage craft that was never used in the first place!
It will be going into the Freshly Found shop soon!

First time I have ever heard a sentence that contains vermilion and binca. (I had to Google the latter!) Thanks (-:

Oh so lovely! And just in time for summer! :) I love tote bags, they cute and functional without the heavy weight of leather
