Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition 2014 -- Raita Bag

Orange finally gets featured in the Juanita Tortilla repertoire with the Umbrella Prints trimmings dark packet I chose. A fitting colour scheme for autumn, too.

This is a corduroy messenger bag named Raita and I am quite proud of her. You may peek behind the scenes to the making of this Umbrella Prints featured pocket here!

Accompanying this handsome patchwork is reclaimed vintage corduroy, polyester yellow lining fabric and brand new zipper and hardware. Also, you can make Raita yours through my Etsy store.
