Broad bean shaped 5 way anti theft travel bag

Copyright©2008 senhouse zakka All rights reserved

Just made this anti theft travel bag.
Customer requested for an earthy colour.

This front pocket zipper is hidden inside, and you can

store maps, brochure, etc here.

Back side has a zipper opening and a small bean shaped pocket.

You can store travel card, tickets, etc here

and it closes with a velcro.

You can put your valuables from the zipper opening so you can take it out easily when you need it.

It will be safely stored inside the bag,
and inside the whole size zipper pocket

like so.
It will be really hard for thieves to locate it.

The other side has a bigger bean shaped pocket with velcro flap, and one zipper pocket.

The bag closes with the zipper which is hidden behind this flap.
Normally, the flap faces the other way round.
Personally, I don't understand why all back packs are made easy for people standing behind you to open it...

Anyway, here the 5 way part.

You make the strap short and use it as a shoulder bag,

make the strap longer and use it as a messenger bag,

or just sling it back to use it as a body bag,

or make the strap longer and pull it from both sides and use it as a back pack.

And you can hold this tab to carry when you are getting off the bus in a hurry.

3 purses and more to go...

I've made 3 purses for requests in Creema.

This stripe and dot fabric is the most popular print,
and I've got about 5 requests for the small purses with this fabric.
I don't know if I have enough...

Got this gorgeous black fabric with hint of gold lines at the spotlight!

And made another doggy one, but has one mistake.
I mad a hole in this leather tab in the wrong place,
and it is showing a little.
I've put it into my auction page.

Now I have few bags to make for requests,
and then I can start on making requested purses and stock for my upcoming event.

knitting season

Although Perth is still warm,
I'm in the knitting zone right now.
I've purchased the jute twine at Bunnings yesterday
and started to knit this...."will be" basket bag.
Can't believe how much I enjoy knitting it!
I've used up all 100m to make this, so I need to get more!!
This will be my storage bag for my Ipad and glasses to put next to my sofa.

Zipper purse with an extra pocket

Just made this long zipper purse with this beautiful Japanese print.

Back side has a zipper pocket.

It opens both way with the zipper, and you can store 10 cards here.
You can store your coins in the divider zipper pocket.

Inside the flap pocket are 2 gathered pockets.

Attach a strap and use it as a messenger bag
or make it short to use it as a shoulder bag.
