    Gorgeous purse for that special chicken-loving person! Maybe as a gift or for yourself!

    If there is such a thing as a sophisticated rag quilt chicken purse....this is most definitely it!!!

    This is a one-of-a-kind "combination of fabrics" made in the traditional manner with the X sewn into each square. I used French "Le Poulet" ~ Chicken print cotton, Moda "Remembrance" cotton fabric, and chicken wire cotton fabric. The closure is made with cream roosters on a black background, also from the "Le Poulet" collection.

    The inside is made with a solid cream fabric and I used black flannel as the middle layer for color and fluff. I used coordinating Le Poulet cotton fabric for the pockets. The purse has one end pocket and one side pocket.

    I integrate a sturdy lining in the bottom to prevent droop, which allows you to load it up!

    Bag measures 12" x 8" with a 4" gusset.
    There are 2 interior pockets: one on the end and another on the side.
    The straps are made with adorable chicken wire cotton fabric. The straps are padded and double stitched for durability. It has a 10" drop.
    The button for this purse is a beautiful large, gold, floral swirl.

    This purse has been washed and dried once to start the ragging effect. Machine wash and dry. Smoke free home. Shipping seems to average $5.20. If it is less to your zip code, I will adjust invoice to reflect it.

    Thanks!

    I'm not surprised! Several are floating around now. A BYCer even bought some for presents and to be raffled off at a swap...I sent her a variety.

    Green...ummmmm
