Octopus, vintage fabric, stripes, messenger bag, satchel

Sorry, this item has sold.

This is a big bag that isn't so huge you feel like you're carrying luggage. I used a firm stabilizer for the flap and body of the bag so that it will have structure, but still give enough to feel soft. The body of the bag, and the underside of the flap, are made with a nice, dark denim. It's a great neutral that's not flat and goes with everything. The lining is unbleached cotton and can be pulled up and away from the bag to be washed in a sink. The light color is great for being able to see what's deep inside your bag! The applique design was drawn, cut, and sewn on by me!

This octopus was cut from a bright and cheerful vintage floral I've been hanging on to for awhile. I paired it with the light grey ticking (stripes) because it just looked cool. I like the unusual, and if you do too, this may be the bag for you!

total height: 12.5"
height from zipper opening down: 11.5"
length: 15"
bottom width: approx. 3.25"
adjustable strap made from 1.5 inch nylon webbing: lengthens from 29"-52 (cinch it up and wear it as a shoulder bag!)

Most items are made to order, so I do need a little time to cut out and sew your new bag! If it's already made, I will get it in the mail as quickly as possible. If you need something faster than my shipping time of 1-2 weeks*, please convo me so I'm aware of it. I appreciate your patience, it's only me running this show and I try to hustle, but I also want to make sure I have time to make the best possible purse for you. * Please remember the shipping schedule is 1-2 weeks beginning the day after the order is placed. You will receive an email with your usps tracking number as soon as it's on the way!


Please contact me if there is any reason you want to return an item, and if it's damaged or flawed--- I really, really want to fix it for you! I try to run quality control over here, but sometimes I miss stuff! I do my best to make sturdy bags that can be loved for years. For exchanges, I ask that you pay for the shipping to return it to me, and for the shipping of the item you want in place of the returned item.


I do not do custom orders, but if you have a suggestion for a bag that falls within the designs I have, please feel free to contact me and we'll discuss it! I've had some wonderful ideas come from customers!
