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.

  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.
