Holes

Click on any picture for a larger view.

Yes, this bag has holes - but they are super stylin' holes. And they've been patched, so there will be no losing your keys or lip balm.

I started with fresh pieces of denim and took a razor, some sandpaper and a splash of bleach to them. All that work, but so worth the effort. Some classy brown tweed lines the holes and some snazzy stitching holds it place.

The same brown tweed (a highschool sewing project that never happened) is used for the straps. The straps are lined with some coordinating bits of this and that - which don't really show while wearing the bag, but jump out at passers-by when you toss the bag down beside your chair.

The back of the bag features the bottom from my daughter's old jeans, with the original two pockets being fully functional, as well as the two large pockets. Bits of those old jeans are used for the cell phone pocket and for the corner trim on the front flap.

Now for the inside! I just had to balance this bag's edgy exterior with a feminine pink and blue floral interior (a remnant donated by Kim K.). The colors coordinate so well. The two blue and white striped interior pockets are finished off with an edge of pink.

Bid on this bag by leaving your name and a bid in the comments section. Bidding starts at $25 and increases by whole $s please. Highest bidder at 8am (PDT) on Saturday, July 19th gets the BAG! Postage extra (from Abbotsford, BC). This bag was created by Jennie.
