I found all the pieces for this bang of a bag downstairs when I was trying to find some order in the chaos. I had apparently cut it all out and then buried the pieces in the mania of everyday living. It employs some of my favourite things- those wonderful paisley thingies in bright colours; and of course- dyed chennille bedspreads.
This bag is a return to the larger bag that I consistently made "in the beginning". So, if you are looking for a place to stash your diapers, books, water bottles, kid paraphanalia, beach supplies, or you just haul around more than your wallet and tylenol.... This is a bag for you.
(Isn't it just spunky looking?)
The strap is made of gingham that was hand embroidered into a table cloth. I thought it worked better here.
And two functional pockets at the front. I find that I like to use those for that stuff that always gets lost in the other sections: grocery lists, lipstick, car keys, cell phone. (in no way means that I will remember to turn on said phone).
The bag measures 15" across and 12.5" deep.
I'll keep the auction open until 7:00 am, cst, Thursday, April 9.
(Today is my second daughter's thirteenth birthday. Do you think I'm up for this challenge of suddenly, unexplicably becoming the mother of teens?!)
