I'm calling the Ferocious Furries, but I'm tempted to go back to calling them Monster Bags. Several of them have their own names, all of them will soon.

Keep them Ferocious Furries.

I don't want to be mean, but I recommend you give this post a read before you sell them.

Your project was the main reason I didn't want to call them monster bags. I do understand that you are very protective of your bag design, but like several other people have already posted, I did have the idea and the fabric before you posted your bag. It was actually Goldfinch's bag that inspired me to finally make it, and my bag is dramatically different from hers.
As you can see, I didn't give mine a mouth. I really did like that idea, I thought it looked great, but I hadn't thought of that before I had seen yours, so I didn't use it. Likewise for the vinyl pockets, the idea had never occured to me, and while they would save me time, they were not my idea.
Yes, both of our bags are messenger bags, yes they are both made with faux fur, and yes they have felt faces on them. However, they are not the same bag and as several other craftsters have posted, they made similar bags before you did. I know that you have expressed interest in selling them, but I feel that our bags are different enough that it would not be a conflict if you do choose to sell your design at a later point.

I hope that you will understand that I do respect that you publicly displayed your bag before I finished mine. I really was impressed that you did, because one of the main reasons I had put off finishing my bag was that I thought it was too silly and strange. Your post, and the response to it, encouraged me to finish my project. I see many craftsters selling similar items and helping each other out. I would be happy to give you the stores I use for cheaper fur, or other items.

I understand what you've said, and yes I admit I am protective of my design. I actually respect the fact you're going to try and sell these bags, I was planning on that for awhile but wasn't sure how they were going to go over.

I don't want to drag this out, so I'm just going to say one more thing and then this is done with. Go ahead and sell them. I hope you make a ton of money off of these bags. My only request is that you keep the name Ferocious Furries. Other than that, I appreciate the thought you put behind your own bags, and I am sorry to have caused a slight disturbance in your thread.

Again, good luck with the bags on eBay.  Smiley

I'm glad we could talk this out calmly. I understand your feelings about the name Monster Bag and I will respect that and not use it. I'm not totally sold on the Ferocious Furries. I've been going between that and Ferocious Fuzzies, and am still trying to think of another name for the bag line.

I'll try to post my bags on Etsy tommorow, but I must get some sleep now. I have swim lessons to teach in nine hours.

Thank you for your support, that means a lot to me.

Ferocious Fuzzies sounds like an oxymoron or something, I like that.

If they were all messenger style you could try Monster Messengers, but they're not. Hmm...

I finished another two bags this week.  I was going to post them tonight, but Etsy seems to have slowed down, so I'll either post them late tonight or tommorow night.  I wanted to give you guys a sneak preview.  The green tote is probably my favorite monster face ever and I just really like the black messenger bag.  The fur is gorgeous in the light, it shimmers like real fur.
