Social Justice Warrior Hand-Embroidered Bookmark

Item Name and Description: The bookmark measures 2″ x 6″ (5 x 15 cm). The front has a two-line cross-stitch slogan in dark orange and red cotton thread on 100% cotton aida cloth. The back is 100% cotton twill in solid burgundy.

Unique: a prototype piece (for testing the font & placement of letters) turned into a finished item. No others exist, nor am I likely to make another in this combination. Despite the bookmark starting its life as a prototype, it’s neatly made and finished.

Made in a pet-free, smoke-free workroom.

Handmade Reversible/Adjustable Red/Pink Slingbag

Item Name & Description: Handmade Reversible/Adjustable Red/Pink Slingbag

This slingbag with adjustable straps is made of two different fabrics: red floral cotton print on one side, and a happy pink flannel on the other. When the pink is on the outside, the strapline is red, and vice versa.

There is a pocket on the outside under the flap, trimmed with a floral lace on the red, and a red-on-white on the pink (which admittedly does not lie flat very well, you might have to iron it if it bugs you). This means that there is a pocket both inside and outside, because you cannot have an overkill of pockets.

9″ X 11″ X 2″ — made to fit a small laptop/tablet and then some, plus with the pocket space you can add more stuff like keys and whatnot! The straps can be knotted up to a length of 21″ with a few more inches to spare.

Starting Bid: $15

Shipping: Shipping from California, to anywhere!

Handmade Reversible/Adjustable Gray/Blue Sling-Bag

Item Name & Description: Reversible, Adjustable Sling Bag, home-made, Gray/Blue

Made of two completely different fabric patterns & types: a silky blue with floral pattern, and a textured black-and-two-shades-of-gray (maybe it’s 3 shades of gray, definitely not 50) metallic acrylic. The seams are visible when the gray side is worn on the outside–that same fabric also serves as the straps. There is a feather stitch along the edges to reinforce the bag, and a bit of imperfect stitching here and there (because my sewing machine does not like thick layers).

9″ x 11″ x 2″ — I made this specifically to fit my 10″ x 6″ laptop and then some. You can adjust how high/low you want the bag to hang by knotting the straps to the appropriate height. The lowest it can go is about 30″ (with a few inches to spare the top after the knot). It’s machine-washable (and I’ll run it through again before I send it to you).

Starting Bid: $15

Shipping: Anywhere

Other Notes: I’ll ship this from California. If you buy this within Riverside County I can just hand deliver it. If it ever gets broken, you can send it back to me for repairs ^^
