Patricia Marfurra McTaggert

Sweet and stylish crossbody bag with oval base and adjustable strap – a very practical size.
The bag features fabric designed by Patricia Marfurra McTaggert, an artist who is a member of Merrepen Arts in Daly River in the NT. She has depicted the plants growing in a billabong including beautiful water lilies.
Fully lined with external zip to close, a rear pocket with zip (shown) and internal zip pocket too.
The strap is long enough to make it a cross-body bag or worn over the shoulder. Very well constructed with brass fittings. The final photo shows someone (me!) holding a Nancy Bag to show scale.
The Nancy bag has straight sides but appears slightly sloped when filled because of the base. The base makes it roomy inside. See the final pic for example of how the bag looks when worn (but different design) to give scale.
