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.

Take The Money And Run Bag

Take The Money And Run Bag – Charity Donation

The Name

Take The Money And Run by Steve Miller Band

Random selection from my music library, which seems quite appropros, considering the object. Although, upon selection, the thought of a gang of old women + one old man, taking the money, stuffing it into this bag and running got me chuckling.

Having tired of working on OPP (Other’s People’s Projects) – 😀 who remembers when O.P.P. was something one was down with 🙂 – I just could not bring myself to make anymore squares, especially since they were made at such a high tension. And fortunately, I did not need to because I all of a sudden remembered that I had won these purse handles through the guild raffle. Effectively, the bag closure is similar to a clam shell…better to keep the cash in the bag!

There is no lining – who has time for lining when the stuff won’t sell. Most appropriate for bigger items. A project bag, a money bag, remembering to keep notions and coins in smaller, more secure enclosures.
