~~ Americana Diddy Bag ~~Spoken for

Diddy bag was made using fantastic red white and blue very early ticking and beautiful thin turkey red antique calico .

Tucked inside the front pocket of the diddy bag is an antique pocket ledger dated 1930 with advertising for a clothing store... What a fun find.

I made a flag from an antique wool red and cream  stripe blanket and a bit of solid blue cotton.
Flag and stars are attached to twigs.

Stars are all made from various antique homespuns .


Please do let me know should you wish to purchase this bit of true Americana, or should you have a question or two.
