For winter 2012 I have created a new series of Bella Handbags in a selection of rich tapestry fabrics, chenilles and velvets. The bag listed here is a replica of an older Bella in that it utilizes a wonderful medallion tapestry that is embellished by a companion fabric in checkerboard chenille. The juxtaposition of two disparate designs (one vintage the other contemporary) adds visual interest and balance. Inside, a deep scarlet brocade serves as lining.
The Bella has a #8 canvas duck base which gives it enough structure to stand on its own, and provides support for the 12" tubular frame around which the bag is constructed. Two matching fabric handles attach to rectangular loops for carrying as a handbag with a 45" detachable shoulder strap provided for carrying across body or over shoulder. A 1.5" tab with twist-lock fastener securely locks the frame closed. Additional features are four metal feet that protect the bottom of the bag, and a full length slip pocket on the reverse side, that is ideal for patterns or small books. Inside I have provided multiple pockets for organization- two with zippers and two slip pockets per side, with an additional slip pocket on either end. A matching zippered wristlet (approx. 9" X 6.5") attaches to a snap tab on the inside.
In addition to being a perfect all-purpose handbag, the Bella also works well as a medium size knitting/crochet bag. The four slip pockets are deep enough to accommodate one ball of yarn each, while the zippered pockets are perfect for miscellaneous tools like counters, cable hooks, darning needles, etc. Because the tubular frame locks open,and the bag is stiff enough to stand on its own, yarn dispenses easily without tangling.
The overall dimensions of the bag are as follows:
Width at base= 16" Width at top= 12" Depth= 7" Height= 9"
