i made this bag out of reclaimed fabrics/items. it was inspired by this awesome handsewn octopus bag i saw on etsy and for all of my searching savvy can't find now.  mine is a little more on the "cute" side while the etsy one is WAY more intricate and bigger.

this one has a brown calico lining and a burgundy 80s belt for a strap. it fits over like a messenger, but is better as a slouchy 80s shoulder bag.

thanks for looking!!

xoxo

sadly, the buttons weren't my idea---i wish i could find the purse that was the inspiration!!! the octopus on the other bag was less "kawaii" and had more buttons.

i'm a bit into simplicity, good cuts, as little bling as possible.

thanks for the positive feedback!!

xoxo.
