The BAG at the Party…

I bet I have your attention!!  Who was the the BAG at the Party you ask…and what did she do?  Well it wasn’t so much as what SHE DID…it was HOW she LOOKED!!

  Here are most of the Clubhouse Quilters..and I have to tell you, we had a blast celebrating Gwen’s birthday!  MIA are Calgary Judy and Phyllis…so we KNOW it’s wasn’t them! There is Gwen on the RIGHT way down…towards the end of the table with only half of her face showing!  And we KNOW she would NEVER be a BAG!!   BUT there was a BAG in our midst…and we all sucked in our breath when she showed her real face!!

Here SHE is!!  Gorgeous isn’t she!!  Made in blacks, greys and taupes…and all hand woven from…

…SEAT BELT STRAPS!! 

BUT still, none the less, a BAG!  She is the perfect size…easy to get at things…and sturdy…why I bet this baby will last FOREVER!!!!  Chris bought her at a Shoe Shop in Salmon Arm, BC!  But thanks to the Internet…

  3. Hey the bags are coming back in again....my daughter had one years ago...that had a long strap to wear across you. And it was connected with the seat belt buckle from a Buick....it was the coolest purse....

    Love the valentine peek....
