When Carl and I first discussed rehoming him, he turned into quite the diva, demanding everything from diamante collars to gold plating.  We compromised on fabrics and went for Ikea’s Besta Linen for the outer, and a yellow basic dot that I found in Mandors which, quite frankly, could be from anywhere, but was the closest to gold that he was getting!

Carl himself is a pocket, complete with piping along the top edge, fully lined with the yellow dots, and with a magnetic snap closure.  Inside there is a zippy pocket, and a main magnetic snap closure, but other than that he’s frill-free.

As we thought he would be good for trips through the Provencal summer to the market this summer, the straps are attached to both the outer and lining, and are just the right length to be carried over the shoulder so that he can get a good view of the world on our shopping trips.  He’s now hanging out on top of an empty suitcase hopefully…
