    II) MY NON-EGG ITEMS
    A)-BURLAP ITEMS I MAKE There are several STYLES,
    w/ pics of each unique item w/ its specific # pls let me know the ITEM # so I can send you that specific one which is already made.

    NOTES-- all burlap pieces have been zigzap stitched one time around the outer edge prior to assembly to deter unraveling of the burlap.
    I have avoided using any sections w/ holes, however these are coffee bean bag with natural variations in weave texture, and random stamps and shipping marks which give each item a unique one of a kind character! Spot washing with a mild soap is recommended. These have been made in a smoke free home, however there ARE dogs and cats in the sewing room so pet hair IS likely!!

    WYG SWAP PICK 2 items from the first 3 STYLES, or 1 single item from the last 5 styles

    STYLE : 1 STRAP TOTE UN-LINED

    STYLE : 2 STRAP TOTE UNLINED

    STYLE: BACKPACK MINI


    STYLE: 1 STRAP TOTE LINED -- fully lined, w/ fabric which forms outer edge as shown
    ITEM#101 - 1 STRAP TOTE LINED (Burlap w/ purple, Multi colored Roses Fabric lining)
    [​IMG]


    STYLE: BACKPACK BLUEJEAN -- Bottom & loop is made of upcycled denim, drawstring/straps 550paracord,

    STYLE: BACKPACK FANCY -- Bottom & loop matching fabric, drawstring/straps 550paracord

    STYLE: JUMBO TOTE - These vary only slightly, each has a teal logo Elephant stamp on one side & a single approx. 3inch wide strap, unlined.
    The Bella Purse is in the front left so you can see the size difference. You could use the JUMBO as a weekend bag, or to hold a sleeping bag!
    ALL JUMBO TOTES USE ITEM #900 (the exact size & shape will vary to best show off the elephant on front)
    [​IMG]


    STYLE: BELLA PURSE - Fully lined, & contains 1 small (cell phone) pocket inside in contrasting fabric.


    B)- OTHER Stuff - as pictured, w/ unique item #
    w/ pics of each unique item w/ its specific # pls let me know the ITEM # so I can send you that specific one which is already made.
    Note -- ALL BURLAP is from used Coffee Bean Bags (food grade), there are variations in texture/weave & assorted color ink stamps, which I will try to show in each item picture.


    III) - which I would likely do a side swap forWHAT I'M LOOKING FOR

    (NOTE: For side swaps for items I really want I can do CUSTOM ORDERS on above BURLAP ITEMS,
    I have burlap w/ purple or blue center lines in the weave, as well as the teal elephant stamps, & I have lots of fabric samples so I can do focus color of your choice, in flowery, or non-flower patterns, as well as solid colors, just pm me w/ what you have in mind and your side swap offer,
    keep in mind that I generally sell the Bella Purse for $25, and the Large Msngr bag (pictured at the bottom of this page) unlined w/ large inside pocket for $40 )
