One would think that after a blog break, it would be impossible to sleep through one's alarm and miss the early morning bag post.
But, that's exactly what happened.
well, I have no idea what it goes to show.
So, I'll go ahead and show a medium sized messenger bag decorated in buttons and fun colours. In January, we need to create our own pockets of colour. Why complain about nature when you can make your own flower garden that's not going to mind when you forget to water it?
About the bag: That's a pocket just beneath the flap. Many of these upholstery samples come with a grommet- used to hang a collection of samples in the furniture store. I usually cut around them, but there is something sort of fun about them, so I left the grommet in that piece. Now you know.
This bag employs a number of hoarded bits. I've always loved that plaid patchwork- a fabric that was sold when my firstborn was a baby. I bought it in pastels and made her a crazy outfit when she was just a little scooter. This piece in primary colours came from the local thrift shop. I was happy to take it off their hands.
The inside has two small, and two medium sized pockets. The fabric for those are a)a fun purple dress that I've borrowed out of numerous times now, and b)a seriously delightful splashy colourful bit that I think came from the lovely and generous Mrs Richert.

Dimensions: pretty much 11" by 11".
This bag will remain available for two days. I don't know how many of you have fallen off the blog watching wagon with my erratic attendence. So, please offer your bids from now until Wednesday, January 6, 2010. $25- Cdn is the place to start.
Thanks for your patience...
