I was at Target the other day and found these:
I immediately envisioned a bag made from these dishtowels! I couldn't wait to get started on it (plus it was a good excuse to try out a new bag closure I've been seeing in my head).
So, I headed home and 2 hours later emerged from my sewing fog with this:
What do you think? Honestly, I couldn't believe how it turned out. I love the two pockets on the outside... PERFECT for my cell phone in one and keys in the other (two things I'm always hunting for in my purse). The inside fits everything I need (and when I say everything, I mean my calendar, a journal, a few diapers and wipes case, my sunglasses and case, a baby toy, plus more)!
I had to keep one for myself. So, I went back to Target to get more dish towels and decided to sell them (in limited edition) on my etsy site for $35 plus $8 shipping. Hurry, though - I've already sold one of the yellow/grey ones and once they're gone, they're gone!
(Remember, until March 1st all my proceeds are going toward the Haiti Relief Effort with Red Cross. After that, I will resume giving the proceeds to low income entrepreneurs in developing countries. "Better Life Bags... making lives better one purse at a time!")
