The Professor's Monthly Homework Assignment: Purses and Bags


Another month, another homework assignment from The Dancing Maenad. This months theme is purses and bags, but sadly this is going to be a VERY short post. You see, the thing is I don't suit purses. I never have. I'm not a girly girl, and anything small and cute really doesn't suit me. It feels funny and not right to have a little tiny handbag that dangles off my wrist. I've gone my whole life with backpacks and shoulder bags. Right now, I only use two bags.
I found this bag in a small asian fashion store for $10. I had been looking for an everyday bag to fit my day planner, books, wallet, etc. I sewed the Bauhaus patch and put studs around it. I painted the spiderweb, and also a bat on the inside flap. I would LOVE to have an Oxford type bag with lots of buckles, but they're expensive.

This is my going out bag. It's small, but fits my wallet, handfan and lipstick. I use it for when I'm going to a club or out to dinner. This bag is long enough to go across my body, which I like.

The best thing about being a DJ is that I can put my bag behind the DJ booth, so I don't have to carry it around all night :)

Wow, that bag looks well DIY-ed, I like it!

What happened to your Iron Fist Zombie bag?

I love the first one! Its beauty lies in the fact that you personalized a bag that otherwise wouldn't have anything special. Nice idea, framing the patch with the studs :D!

I like your customised bag, very old school and creative.
I also love your Iron Fist overnight bag and your green monster one too that you've featured in earlier posts :-)
