This was the very first song I thought about when I read this month's challenge.  It's sooo funny, so I made a gift for my best friend for her birthday.

THE BUSINESS TIME BAG

First the purse itself. I followed this bag pattern, except for the bottom, I just sewed the two sides together instead of making it round.  I didn't take any during pictures because those of you that actually can sew would be appalled! Tongue 

The Outside:

I made it following this tutorial: http://lulalouise.blogspot.com/2008/01/reversible-shoulder-bag-tutorial.html The outside is meant to be functional and nice, I chose a purple-ish blue light cord material

The Inside: Team building shirt from your old work!

I made this from an old tee shirt that I got from volunteering.  I don't sew much, but I should know better than to try to sew stretchy jersey to non-stretch cord.  LOL There might have been a lot of cursing, especially trying to get the tee shirt pattern to line up!



The contents of the bag was stuff mentioned in the song:

Toothbrush and toothpaste (it's part of the foreplay)
Lush's Business time massage bar (even better foreplay)
A Cd with the song and erotic lounge music (incase you trip over your pants/shoes while taking them off and need to turn it into a sexy dance)
Business socks (you know that when I"m down to just my socks it's business time!)

And a lavender scented flax eye pillow for when business hours are over...to help fall asleep




There you have it! I'd love to hear what you think! (my friend loved it!)

I've never heard this song but I love what you did here. It reminds me of something my best friend or I would give to the other. Great job!

It's WEDNESDAY!!
My favorite part: "It's not foreplay, but it's still very important."

This would make a great Bridal shower gift, too (assuming the bride is a Flight of the Conchords fan).

For you craftsters that have no idea why this is so funny...

Thanks to everyone for their sweet feedback and to manunson for posting a link to it.  For those of you who have newly discovered Flight of the Conchords, they have a show on HBO too. It's great! 

THis is my first post and first challenge (I've decided that to help with my new years resolution to craft more I"m going to do all the challenges!) I find that I'm becoming a comment whore and spend a lot of time checking back to see if anyone has contributed to my currently inflating ego Tongue

Fantastic! So smart! I can't remember a Wednesday going by without me or my husband singing this song. "When I'm down to my socks you know it's business time, that's why they call them business socks!"
