This doodle bag is an upcycled canvas and genuine leather small messenger/cross body style purse that has been completely covered with one-of-a-kind, hand drawn illustrations. I simply some Sharpies and got to work. The theme of this bag is medieval woodcuts of werewolves, or more specifically, werewolves vs. villagers. I have done my best to reproduce several famous woodcuts/etchings of werewolves from medieval European literature. In the Middle Ages in Europe there was just as much hysteria over werewolves as was experienced later on in the Americas over witches. Countless people were tried, tortured, and executed for their alleged carnivorous lunar activities. This bag features my personal favorite illustrations on the subject, which I find to be both fascinating and hilarious.

This mini messenger bag is about 8" wide and has a brass snap closure. The interior of the purse is trimmed in burnt orange suede and beautiful glossy deep brown leather. There is a single interior zipper pocket. I used to make themed bags like these for my friends as gifts and they always would get tons of compliments whenever they would wear them out. The illustrations are quite durable and will last as long as the bag does if you use common sense. I would stick to hand washing or spot washing if it gets dirty, for instance, just to stay on the safe side. This purse comes signed by me inside the zipper pocket, along with the name of my Etsy store if anyone asks you where you got it…and you know they will.
