The Birtskag


Liesl came up with the name Birtskag earlier this week..... and I haven't been able to get it out of my head ever since, just like those rascally robots that have been singing Stayin' Alive on high rotation inside my brain.

This was a longer skirt with a sheer embroidered overlay.....

I love the combination of purple and red together....

So I decided on red stitching on the purple strap.

More birtskags are on the horizon....

Love the bag... the name sounds a bit like an IKEA name... something I can never quite pronounce! Sounds like lots of fun yesterday.
Cheers to you!

I immediately thought of the Birkin bag- you know how they name bags at Chanel etc. Everyopne will want their own Birtskag!!
Did LOTS of binding unpicking last niaght, might need to straighten the edges a bit better!

I really love the outer fabric on this birtskag Cam! And yes, it does sound like an Ikea word. Or a Ukranian insult...

Becky said...

Very clever, the bag and name both :)

Liesl (Hoppo Bumpo) said...

I still think that Birtskag was the surname of one the girls in Abba!

Love your latest Birtskag - it looks fabulous. I think these are going to be as big as teatowel aprons. Can't wait to see more!
