But, these are so pretty! And they’re just the right size for a smaller project (never mind that I’m not working on any small projects… I’ll start one). And they have a nice wide bottom so they stand up. And it is so cool how the handle is attached to the zipper. They are lovely and I want one. What am I talking about?
Also never mind that I just bought a very cool, one of a kind bag from a local crafter (Melissa Hess, of Green Chick Designs). It holds my bigger projects, has a pocket big enough for a pattern/book on one side (with a small pocket on the outside of the big pocket) and a smaller pocket on the other. Also has a nice sized pocket on the inside and a strap long enough that I can carry it messenger style and knit while I’m doing whatever. I really like that it is made almost entirely of recycled clothing and upholstery fabric. Very cool. Check it out…..
I just love it when I have something different; when I know that there will most definitely not ever be another “one” just like “it”. You know, something a little “funky”. I just adore the fabrics on this bag. As I said before, I don’t need another bag but I couldn’t resist the fabrics. I find myself running my hand over the circular patterned fabric and the fringe around the top. If you like the idea of having a one-of-a-kind bag there will be some in the shop closer to the holidays. She has several different sizes available, each one different. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with! – Susan
P.S. Also, never mind that I just commissioned a purse from her. Not the one pictured above, but one to carry as an actual purse.
P.P.S. Again, also never mind that she had an adorable smaller purse for a little girl that I just had to get.
P.P.P.S. I still want the HiyaHiya bag. What can I say? I’m a bag whore….
