Recently I found myself renting an old stone school house in wyoming. My family and I lived there for a year and during that year, I became pregnant with my 3rd child. So here I was jobless, friendless and pregnant, living in a historical building. Which means that any givin time of the day or night, random people would stop by and look in our windows. It was weird. Once I finished the job that I had been brought out there to do (my mate still had work), I found myself extremely bored (and lonely... but that's another story). So, one of my hobbies was to go to any thrift store in a 3 hour radius.
On one of these outings, I found a $15 sewing machine. I rushed home with my find. I knew that we were heading back east, at some point and not wanting to purchase additional items that would have to transported, I began cutting apart any and all articles of clothing or blankets that suited my whimsy. This particular bag is made from my landlord's wool blanket (yeah, I know... it wasn't mine, but I left him 2 blankets and a hand painted floorcloth in return!). Not only has this bag been created in an old stone school house by a pregnant woman, but it had been packed carefully and traveled from wyoming to Maine! In addition, it is adorned with a hand embroidered tree on the front flap. The whole bag is loaded with many pockets: 3 on front (under the flap), one on each side and a large one in back. Large interior is 18"x13x3.5". The interior of this bag is perfect for a laptop, diapers, wipes and/or change of clothes. The multiple outer pockets are great for binkies, bottles, toys, mobile phone, mp3 player, etc. The back pocket is large enough for magazines, books or mail. Large buttons adds a funky flare.
Would also make a great kid's school bag.
