tiny treasures bag

June 2nd, 2009

I’ve been thinking about making another kind of bag for my shop and I came up with this one. It’s a little wonky, but it’s just a prototype so whatever. The bag is a lot smaller than my other ones (here a photo for scale) but I’m thinking it could be even smaller. I embroidered some details on the bag that I really like: a running stitch along the whole strap and a hand sewn buttonhole.

The button I wanted to use didn’t fit in my automatic buttonholer, so I had to do it by hand. I was going to do a hand bound buttonhole, but that just looked too complicated and too fancy for a kid bag, so I just used a blanket stitch to go around the buttonhole. Ta da!

I was thinking the bag could be for all those tiny treasures little ones find walking down the street. But “tiny treasures bag” is a little twee, so I need your help. Leave a comment with a better name for the bag and whoever comes up with the best one wins the bag. Sound good? Go.

    My Goody Bag…
    I haven’t read the above comments so it may have been used already.
    I love it…and know I would have to commission another one if I win this one…if not my girls would be fighting for this one!
    Have a lovely day.

    How about ‘Swag Bag’ for all the exciting swag picked up (and collected) over the course of a child’s outting? ~Heather

    How about Hunter Gatherer Bag or Indy Bag (as in the perfect bag for your budding “archaeologist’s” special finds).

    How about ‘the Finder Keeper bag’… :)

    My son thought the Wee wonders bag.. :) He loves to keep tiny stones, however they always end up in my vacum cleaner.

    what about naming it after something small?

    i.e. pixie purse? or just ‘the mini’ ?

    how about ‘borrowers bag’ or some thing like that, as the borrowers were small and for some reason it made me think of that!!

    the “trinklet”

    you know when you see those places with all the gnome statues and little treasures on the side of the road? our family started calling all of the collected things “trinklets”. it’s got a dainty feel to it just like your cute little purse!

    oh – or the “pooka pouch”, for your shells and stuff.

  9. cute!

    i’ll throw out “wee wanderer”, but i love “finder’s keeper” too!
