Another day, another bag

I got a wild hair to start making bags again. Part of it had to do with my cousin Sarah coming to visit and her falling in love with this bag. She graduates from Mizzou this summer and I made her an orange version as a graduation gift. I figured, well since I have all of this stuff out I might as well make a few other bags.

So last week I sorted through my fabric stash (oh mah hell I have a lot of fabric) and found a few things to work with. Monday I did this fun Sock Monkey number. It’s the same size as the Dick & Jane version I personally carry, only better constructed. It’s 12″ tall and 17″ wide, so large mommy bag sized. I’ve carried my laptop (and I have a big ass Dell), camera, drawing book, wallet, water bottle and other various purse junk in mine. I don’t have it listed on Etsy yet because I don’t have any quality photos of it. I wait until I have a few bags done to photograph them all at once. I thought it would be fun to share though.

    I visit the asian bag you have on etsy every month or so. We’ve stopped buying stuff so I haven’t treated myself…and my hubby hasn’t taken the hint for gift giving occasions…but I’ve got a couple coming up so it is on the list. LOL
