This is the first purse that my son made.  My daughter tested the market here by taking it to school and it was not a very big hit.  The kids asked her if her mom made it out of her sweat pants?  She said "no my brother did", and then they wanted to know if her brother is gay.  He is not by the way.

  I think it's cute!  It would be great with jeans and a tshirt or for your workout or outdoor clothes.  Also, tell your son to keep up with the sewing.  I hate to sew, and I think a part of it is I didn't learn at a young age.  Let me tell you, knowing to sew can save you lots of moola and help you make so many more custom things.  My boyfriend grew up sewing, and his wardrobe is so much more unique and fabulous than me.  And...lots of girls would love a guy that's not afraid to sew or do other "nonmasculine" things!

I think it's cute, too. Kids can be kinda rough on one another sometimes. Teach them to blow it off. Tell them I like the bag and the critics need to get an imagination. Smiley

Your daughter looks like she's in high school.

As a recent high school graduate, I can tell you that high school students (at least where I live) are often judgemental to the point of being very close minded. Many of them don't understand anything outside of the Hollywood box they want to live in.

I'm glad you're raised your children to think outside of that. Just don't let them take the "cool" high school kids' words as the most important judgement of their art. Smiley

I go to school. Kids suck. One of my acquaintance's got made fun of because of his voice and he was heartbroken...but the point is tell your son he is awesome, because when he gets all the awesome chicks because he can make clothes and the other guys can't, they'll all be wishing they could sew.

I personally like the bag. I seems to look like a bag from PacSun or something. Great job! Cheesy

Oh, kids are horrible. I go insane when I hear one of my son's friends using "gay" as a derogatory term.
Hopefully your son will just laugh at them, but you seem really supportive, so he probably has a good grip on who he is.
Also, I totally fell in love with my husband when I saw him mending one of his shirts.  I wish boys would get a clue, that we like it when they're creative.

Also, the bag is very cute. It would be great for toting around a knitting project.

thats horrible of them to say that.
i woulda been like 'yea and what' haha.
i dont know im sure kids dont like the stuff i make
but they never say it. and im in high school.
and if they did i wouldnt care bc theyre just being too close minded.
but yea most of them are actually amazed.
anyway. i love the idea.
for me personally, its too big cuz idk i love small bags. =P
but i think its a pretty smart idea.
especially since it has the drawstring already built in. heh.

Thanks for all of the nice compliments on the bag, and kids (boys) who sew.  Well, believe me my kids are beyond worrying about what the other kids say.  They do their own thing.  I just get kind of ticked off when people, not just kids, make stereotypical judgments about stuff like this, ie.  men who sew.  Oh, and he can crochet as well, and is the best cook in the house, but he can do all the "guy" stuff too. 

I am with you all, I would love to have a "crafty" partner.  I have seen several guys on this site and I am always impressed. 

Anyway, thanks for liking the bag as well.  I like it.
