This is a bag I made for AlmostDawn in a swap last year and I had such a hard time letting it go, that I think it deserves its own thread. She said, she liked green, so it was kind of obvious what I would make for her.... Grin and the Metamorph Moogy was born Wink



The green fuzzy stuff used to be a blanket and for the lining I used cotton... and I HAD to attach some fake fur ( can't seem to do without it Wink)



The bag is the rough size of a record , is closed by zipper and the back has an extra outside-pocket....



and the inside has two extra pockets and a keychain to fasten things to ( kind of hard to see, sorry)

And of course, there is a story that goes with it:

Metamorph Moogy
pluralis hortensis Salentia, Moogy 1712

The Metamorph Moogy, being named after their discoverer, Doogy Moogy (1680-1751), are a frog-subspecies that undergo constant change in appearance over the course of their lifes. They start out as a sort of butterfly, where their one eyes creates a unique appearance. They transform into flowery dragonworms in their adolescence, where their hypnotic personality is easiest to observe. The grown M.M. has no visible appendages and it is strongly suspected of moving via telekineses.

Though generally friendly, the M.M. Is highly suspicious of its surroundings and can be found hypnotising everything and everyone, thus forcing observers to forget parts of the encounter. Because of this, little is known about habits and diet, although a number of scientists have hinted that the M.M. Is fondest of the company of garden gnomes.

Please give these Metamorph Moogys a good home where they can practise their various hobbys, which include .... gee, I must have forgotten..... 



Feeling hypnotized yet? Grin

Thank you, girls! Grin

coffmancakes - crazy is always good, I agree Grin Especially when it comes to the kind of purse you carry around..
 
Padester - I found that kids once they get used to having weird stuff around, they actually enjoy it....after all, little boys think that cars that turn into space-alien-robots are utterly normal... Grin
