The plaid is vintage wool. I had sort of planned on selling the fabric instead of using it, but I was inspired by it and decided to use it myself.
Funny story that the plaid reminds me of...at the bottom of my blog you can see a counter. It links to blogcounter.com and provides a ton of rather interesting info on who links to me, where people are coming from when they come to my blog and the top google searches that bring people here. My all time highest google search (a whopping 4) is "lumberjack fashion" which I mentioned as a joke way back here during Mary Ann's fabric challenge. I think it's hilarious that people actually are searching for this. Anyway, I think this bag has some lumberjack qualities. And, if you arrived here via a lumberjack fashion search, welcome! I hope you find what you are looking for!
