Winter Makes Me Sad
One of the first bags I ever made came from a set of thick velour drapes I had. The drapes made me depressed after a while, since Minnesota never gets any sun in the winter, so I cut them up.
The Yellow Sailor Messenger is also made of drapes, although they were pretty sunny themselves and probably didn't cause depression. This is one of those recycled fabric/recycled plastic combo bags...I like to call it the Awesome Fusion. The buttons on the front are vintage navy buttons.
