At The Circus Bag

Yes, I made it!
My entry for the Circus European Street Team challenge is finished!

I called it the 'At The Circus' Tote Bag  and this is it:

It's actualy one bag, but it is fully reversible, with a big bright, frilly brooch that you attach wherever you wish.

One side is  bold red and white stripes with a generous band of vintage white lace on the top.

The other side is one of my all-time favourite fabrics. A very retro looking cotton print with lots of moody black and white and some surprising bursts of purple and red amid the stripes and flowers.

It reminds me of those Victorian tattoed  ladies of the sideshows.

So, according to your mood, you turn the bag inside out and have two very different bags in one.

As for the brooch you choose if you will attach it or not.

You can wear it as a totaly seperate accessory on your clothing or on another bag -or even a hat.

And if anyone was wondering why there are two bags in the's not just to show you the fully reversible nature of the bag....

For the first time ever, I made two identical bags.

Because one bag is meant for you!
Yes, it's give-away time!

The give-away should be up by tomorrow morning so please drop in and comment to win.
