I have had these canvas bags for years. I cut off the fronts and use two of the plain backs for a bag. Granddaughter age 15 is staying with me this week and she wanted this design on her bag. I was in a hurry and put the back side inside out. Oh well she was happy with it. Hugs and flowers, Suzanna

Nice work, you two! My traveling niece just text me some photos of their fish they caught. Does your granddaughter like fishing?

I say, it must me nice to retire at 15!-lol

Thank you! I don't know if she has ever gone fishing, but it could relax her.

I like your bag, very useful. I could not see the imperfection, only you and your granddaughter will notice.

Thank you! She did not care about the boo boo. But I did learn from the mistake.

Thank you! Yes, it was fun. Not quite sure why she picked this design, but she said her friends would understand. She even wanted one of the printed bags.

You and your 15 y/o granddaughter had a great day together. What is better than that? It doesn't matter what was done and she is happy as a lark. All turned out well.

Thank you! We did have a good week! It has been about 2 years since she stayed with me, we both enjoyed the time.

What a great project and a lovely outcome. There's nothing wrong with being creative I say. And you can still use the 2 printed sides. I like to embroider a piece of fabric large enough to cover the side and then stitch it on top of the side with the ad I'm not interested in.

Thank you! What a great idea, I always cut off the straps for keeps and trash the printed side, not anymore!
