I couldn't bear to part with my kiddo's leopard print coat even after it was really really small...as in she couldn't get her arms in it anymore.  So...it sat in my stash...whispering to me "cut me baby...do it!"  I never had to guts to hurt her....but she wanted it.  Oh yes...she wanted it bad.   Cheesy  After I cut her, she whispered to me again...this time "tie me up honey...tie me to a tree!"  How could I say no?

Lined with heavy satin material donated to my stash, and the handles are a random thrift store find from about a year ago.

Am I the only one whose craft items tell me what they want to become? Wink

how positively lush is that? it's stinkin' adorable too!
my beads do that to me.... they beg to be strung up and tied off (haha)  Cheesy  but hey, madness loves company.. wait that's misery.. but madness is so much more fun.

Whew!  I'm glad I'm not the only one Smiley  My little bag is an exhibitionist!!  I'm so happy you guys like her!  I've been trying to decide if she's worth selling, or if she's simply an experiment and I shouldn't even bother.  Oh, by the way, there's three pockets inside, and that area that looks like a big wrinkle on the front is another pocket on the front of the purse. Smiley

Thanks guys! Smiley

As always, meanbean, you did a fabulous job.  And I have 20+ neckties in my stash that whisper to me all the time.  Not to mention 50+ feet of seat belt webbing and several rolls of duct tape.  They know what they want to be!

I am an apologist for the spiders.

Just treat me no differently than you would the Tarantula Queen.

That's definitely a cute bag. 

And your bag's S&M thoughts made me laugh so hard I snorted.  And seeing that in writing makes me laugh even harder.
