Momma's got a brand new bag

I'm a pretty casual gal and I really needed a new purse.  Most of the bags in the stores that were "doable" had way too much hardware on them for my taste; I turned to etsy, and went the hand made route.  Of course there're tons of etsy shops that sell hand made purses.  This is the one I settled on:

It was made by a great gal in Ohio, creationsbyellyn, and it's reversible. 

These are the items that go in my purse, every day, and they fit in my new bag, perfectly.  I bought the small zip pouches a long time ago from JPATPURSESalso an etsy seller.

After I'd used my new bag for a week or so, I decided I probably wouldn't ever reverse it; I like having the pockets on the inside.  But, I want another one, just like this, but black on the outside; I thought that'd be better for the "winter" months.  I know we don't have much "winter" in SoCal, but I contacted creationsbyellyn, and ordered a 2nd bag with a print, this time paisley, on the inside and solid black on the outside.  It's winging it's way to me, as I type.  She's a wonderful etsy seller.  Stop by and visit her and see what else she has to offer.

Now, here's something funny, when my new bag came, I realized it was the same fabric, only black instead of brown, of one of the tablecloths I'd made!

Thanks for stopping by, we enjoyed having you,


  1. Nice purse, and since it matches some already owned fabric, you knew there was something that drew you to it! How did I know there would be a camera in there, hmm?

  2. LOL...funny how it matches your tablecloth! Very pretty!

  3. very cute! that it matches your tablecloth is really funny!
