I do hair. Naturally when I found the AH fabric with bobby pins, I snatched it up. The whole rest of the bolt, in fact. At least it was on sale.
Anyway, I needed a really big bag. I carry a lot of stuff with me, including ridiculously large brushes, and a big bulky blowdryer. Not a lot of bags work for me, and all the bags they sell at the beauty supply are ridiculous amounts of money and UGLY. Besides, whats the fun in buying something?
So I saw the influx of Weekender bags and adored the shape. They remind me of bowling bags. And they were huge. Naturally, I wanted one. And since I could customize it to my preferences, it was perfect. Not to mention that this was created with stuff I just had laying around. Granted, I could open a small fabric store, but still....
The handles are my only qualm. They're webbing I had laying around to match...but its nylon, and too shiny for my taste. I might go try and find some in cotton. I hate how slippery they are. The bobby pin fabric is actually a giant pocket. They are on both sides.
These photos are terrible. Really terrible. Its 3 AM, but I still cant justify.
Here it is, lookin' like a lump. Its only got a few brushes in the front pocket it so it looks strange and lopsided...not to mention unable to stand on its own. I've only got my makeup kit in there.
Here is the lining and a very sloppy pocket. But the pocket houses my shears, and thats all I needed it for.
Here is a poor action shot, for scale. I am a deer in headlights.
