Description

It's a smokey blue suede and shoulder length bag with my mother's knitted basketweave patterned front and back sides a little bigger than a half moon bag. Meant for use in winter with a magnet button in the inner middle with polyester lining with two pockets on both sides. She asked her friend sewing shop owner to use her knitted parts and the smokey blue suede leather to make into this bag. I still use it as I like the colour patterns and it's warm look in the winter. The color of smokey blue suede is also what I like about it.
