Not such a good photo, but just to let you know, I'm LOVING my Art Classes on Tuesdays!
Rubbings of underwater fish, some sea weed and then a blue wash.
How old do you think this bag may be?????

Glad you're enjoying the art class! I love the blues of the fish rubbings. How do you do those?

The bag doesn't show any wear, that I can see, except for the handles. If it wasn't for that I'd have thought it was new. Is it from the seventies, by any chance?

Unless old handles have been put on a new bag, I would have a stab at the '60's
I am trying to remember when I knitted cotton bags from lengths of cotton knotted together and I have one still somewhere I suspect and have no idea where the original cotton came from......maybe hospital materials of some sort.
I knew once I lost my Mum I would lose my memory..

I'm guessing sometime in the 70's for the bag Annie, gorgeous art work too..

I can't believe the age of that purse! That's very cool. (I won't say how old, in case anyone else wants to guess.) LOL.

I had a bag similar to that made by my grandmother in the late sixties, different handles though. I like the art work. Beautiful shades of blue.
