When I go to the sea in the late summer, I feel like the summer lasts longer. Yes, I am getting ready to go to the sea. I am getting ready for the beach, for swimming, for the smell of the sea and for dried salt on my skin, for naps in the sun and listening to crickets.
Thinking about the sand under my bare feet and watching two nuances of sand colour artist’s canvas, I have made a bag. Then I played a bit and made sea horse, sea shells, periwinkles and starfish appliqué. Corals are present in the colour of the motifs on the bag and in the name of the bag. I am very impatient to take Coral to the beach!
Coral tote is made from linen artist’s canvas. The bag is 35 cm high and 50 cm wide. The bottom of the bag is 40 cm long, 12 cm wide and it has been strengthened so the bag would keep its shape. Sea horse, sea shells, periwinkles and starfish appliqué is made from coral linen fabric. Inside is made from red cotton fabric and it has three pockets, one of them with a zipper closure, and a ribbon with a swivel clip.
