Under The Bridge: Off da Hook

The Name

Under The Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers

This is my homeless series of bags: the other two are called Gypsy Woman and Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?

The Bag

Dimensions: 29 inches squared; 16-inch depth from point of intersection

I should’ve followed the pattern, but wanted a bigger bag, as I am a big guy, homeless people have a lot of stuff to carry, and the other guild members could use this bag considering the amount of yarn I see them lugging around the meeting.

Destination still to be determined.

I can’t remember the reason for the name other than it might have orginally been for myself. ODH stood for Off da Hook, a business under which I was operating at the time. However, my photographic evidence reminds me that I ended up gifting it to my aunt, but due to an unfavorable image, has been withheld from this post.
