inspired by chunk from The Goonies

Goonies fan here! I made this keen halter, inspired by Lawrence/Chunk.
I have been known to mix plaids and florals.... perhaps this is why!

new style : pouch bag : win one too!



So this is how it happens. I save everything. I have been saving the bottoms hems off of polo shirts (among other things) for years. I knew I would use them for something. Some of them turned into asterisk poms : http://courtneychu.blogspot.com/2010/02/asterisk-pom-flutter.html

I accumulated a bucketful and came up with these bags. I sewed about 18 in 24 hours - what does that tell you about me? Something about seeing the variety and colors as a collection is so satisfying.

There are lots of exposed seams and stitches. They don't lie flat. They are not lined. I love their texture. You can adjust the length of the straps by the knots. So if your little girl would prefer a handbag, or maybe a crossbody, go for it. I think some of the moms might be using it as well...

They will be popping up in the emails, please sign up here:
