Too good to limit to Halloween

Speaking of the Ghastlies, of course. You either love them or hate them and I fall squarely in the former category.

I saw a messenger bag on ETSY using this fabric that I really liked, but I have no use for a large messenger bag. Coincidentally, the very next week I was somewhere with my daughter wishing I didn't have a big, heavy purse on my shoulder that I had to keep up with while I tried to play with her, so the idea of a mini messenger bag was born. I've seen a few on the internet, but I'm basically making this one up as I go - sized to fit my favorite images from the fabric of course.

This is the front flap that will cover the front of the bag:

And these little cuties will adorn the side pockets:

And I will be using this bag at times other than Halloween!

Linking up to Freshly Pieced for her WIP Wednesday.


  1. Can't say I'm in love with the Ghastlies as you are, but I do like those sweet girls that will be your pockets!

  2. Pretty, I like the color combination.

  3. ohhh you're right - the fabric is great!

  4. I think the Ghastlies are adorable! I'm so glad they've continued to print them each year. It's one of those lines that I just don't want to cut into.
