Tied Up






Guess what season it is? Grab and go season, that's what!
Or, for persons similarily addicted to rooting through other people's trash; ie, the ubiquitous Yard Sale Season. I like having a little wallet bag like this so that my quarters, loonies, and fivers are conveniently slung over my shoulder at all times.
I've also heard tell that they are great for ipods, puffers, and cell phones.

In any case, taking a set of cast-off drapes, a few outdated neckties, and some random scraps-- voila! a bag.


It also gave me the perfect oppurtunity to use a great purple button that looks like some sort of bumble berry. I sewed a button hole into the necktie flap so that you can fasten the bag closed.


(inside out) When my eldest daughter was a toddler she said "side-be-down". I always liked the sounds of that, so didn't actually correct her. Turns out that at nearly sixteen, she says it "right proper" now. yawn. How boring.


5.5" across and 7" down.
Tied Up will remain available until tomorrow, May 19, 2010 at 9:30 pm, cst.
Bids begin at a minimum $20.00 Canadian dollars.
