The idea behind this design was inspired by the intent to re-create the
traditional duffel bag, giving it a more sophisticated, feminine edge. It took
on a life of its own in the process transforming into a stylized version of the
bag carried by that legendary governess, Mary Poppins.
This is a large bag ideal for overnight trips for which a conventional piece
of luggage is just too much. It measures 18"high X 20" wide (at the base) X 8"
deep and is supported by a 16" diameter hoop sewn into the top band that pops
open for easy access. Inside, there are four zippered pockets along with four
slip pockets for organization. A d-ring tab provides the attachment point for
the matching zippered pouch which is included with each bag. A common sense
twist-lock fastener secures the bag, and two matching fabric handles, with a
12"drop, are provided for carrying. Two piped slip pockets on the outside of
the bag provide a spot for water bottle, cell-phone or any other item you need
readily at hand. If you are looking for an elegant, curvaceous, all-purpose bag
that can carry just about anything, the MARY POPPINS BAG, may be just what you
are looking for. In addition, for those of you who knit or crochet, this bag is
ideal for the really big projects like afghans.
Refined and tasteful, MAGNOLIA features a floral tapestry in cream and toffee.
A matching toffee ultrasuede was used for the ends, staps and reinforced bottom
of the bag. A cobbled satin jacquard adds elegant detail to the interior.
