This is a variation of the ostrich vinyl tote for a friend’s client. After I finished this bag, I went shopping (read as researching) at a local mall. While cruising through the bag displays in a big box store, I overheard a woman say to her friend how much she really liked a certain designer’s bag but really disliked the gaudy logo/trinket…it was sooo tempting to offer to make her a bag that she could design and put her OWN initials on. Then there was a man looking for a bag for his mother. Again, I resisted temptation – besides I didn’t have a worthy sample on me or any business cards.
