A Book Bag with Loads of Character

Book Bag 3 - Guenette

My very good friend, Cheryl, quilted this book bag and presented me with this wonderful gift for no reason except that we are friends – the best reason of all. Isn’t it beautiful? Have a closer look at the quilting details.

And the inside is just as perfect. That little label at the top is a cleverly designed pocket to hold business cards. And those neat little bits of Velcro hold the bag shut.

It wouldn’t surprise me to discover that my recent success at finding book vendors could be attributed to how I have shown up with my books tucked away in this gorgeous bag. Many, many thanks to a wonderfully talented and generous friend.

    Nice post 🙂

  2. Nice bag! Sounds like a very good friend you have, Fran!

  3. What a beautiful bag and a beautiful friend you have, Fran. A gift is always more special when there’s no special reason. 🙂

    Very nicely done! The dark on white pattern reminds me of words on a page!!! Jane

    • What a wonderful thought – words on paper – I hadn’t seen it that way until you said so and now I am even more thrilled with the excellent colour and pattern choice.

    Hi Fran, you certainly have a talented friend, what a beautiful book bag. I am just about to check out my daughter’s very first art blog. Hope i can figure out how to access it.

    Just beautiful! Looks like something my mom would make.

    • That’s so funny, Gwen. My mom used to make me different little bags – nothing as uptown as Cheryl’s talented quilting. I remember one had a needlepoint of brightly coloured peppers on the front. Oh, the memories. Thanks for bringing that one back.

  7. Oh, I’d love one of those. Much classier than a tatty poly bag. Stronger too.

    The quilted bag, which holds the books you have written, is extra special, indeed! I am so glad you have had luck in publishing and that this inspirational and meaningful gift could be given some credit for helping! I am blessed with friends who give for no reason and also, are so sweet in homemade presents. I do the same for them, Fran! I bet you are a giving person, you radiate goodness in your gravatar and writing, too! Smiles,Robin

I would really love to hear what you think about this post . . .
