The Flamenco Bag is a medium-sized bag that was inspired by the luxurious skirts worn by the flamenco dancer. This bag gives the impression of romance and movement even when sitting on a table. It is a roomy bag that can go anywhere, from the park to a fancy evening out.
These bags are surprisingly easy to make and complete: the felting and finishing is very quick and easy though the finished bag looks sleek and high-end. Simply hand sew the felt "flaps" over the snap handle structure, snap closed, and walk out the door. Add Beauty Bag Feet for a wonderfully luxurious finished look. Finished bags measure approximately 16-19" (40-48cm) wide at bottom and 8-9" (20-22.5cm) deep when sitting up (rectangular bottom itself approximately 7" (17.5cm) wide and 4" (10cm) deep), 8.5" (21.25cm) tall from bottom to frame. Flaps measure 10" (25cm) wide. Skill level is Intrepid Beginner to Intermediate.
