Annie's Rose


Well, we are back. And if you've not already noticed, we hit the big old number of ten thousand smack-a-roonis. That was largely raised in 2008- nearly $8,000 of it.
So, to celebrate, I reverted to an original bag style. Actually, it wasn't really to celebrate; it just turned out that way. For those of you asking for a return of this bag style- don't say I never did nothin' for you. For those of you waiting breathlessly for more messenger bags- never fear. I still have roughly eight tonnes of stuff here waiting to get turned into just that.


So, this sweet bag comes to you from a prior life as a table cloth. It's bright and pretty. There is a pocket running the length of one side; trimmed with red rick rack, and buttoned closed at the top so that your depends and hydro bills don't pop out at inconvenient times.

See the interior?

Tricked ya! This bag is fully reversible. And then you've got a red bag with flowery accents, and a pocket on both sides, with the other pocket now fitting inside.

She is pretty sweet.
The dimensions are approximately 16" by 17" with the straps measuring around 17" as well.
It is good to be back.

Leave your mark in the comments, and we'll wrap up these roses at 8 pm, cst.

yay! They like it, they really like it!

(I wonder if I was stuck in a bit of a rut with the messenger bags? I was so not ready to make another one, and it was fun to make this style for a change. Coming up next: handbag size bags.

Handbag size bags-YES, please!!!
A girl needs "lots" of handbags. I can hardly wait. I don't have a laptop or books to haul, but I have a wallet, a brush, a phone & not much else. Hurray!

I love the style Joyce! And reversible!?! Your sewing prowess was just raised another notch in my eyes! Perfect change of pace for those of us whose spouses claim we don't need another messenger bag.
