A couple of weeks ago I had a "vision" of this bag. It had been a long day, and I was too tired to start on it (I know better than to try cutting/sewing/ironing while it's late and I'm exhausted), so it had to wait. But only until the next morning! I got up, gathered everything needed from my stash, and got to work.
I totally love this bag! The applique. The size (huge!). The *look*. Even that crazily-shedding silky "fun" fur didn't make me curse (much)! It's made with bright red velvet and is fully lined with a Santa "vintage postcard" fabric.
What a blast! I'm soooo looking forward to doing some Christmas shopping now!
