What materials did you use? I was given the floral upholstery fabric, but there was not enough to make the whole bage. Since I had already purchased the teal blue woven fabric - inspired by Brett's funky colours- I worked at making them co-ordinate. On the blue strip across the front I used frayed threads from the upholstery fabric, and some red stretch velvet- to tone down the over-bright teal.

What a beautiful story behind the making of this bag! You most certainly have a very good heart. I like the fabric and also like how you padded the straps. Very pretty bag in itself, but the story makes it even more beautiful.
