etsy finds from country living

With all the great magazines that have come and gone over the past couple of years, I’m glad to see that Country Living is staying fresh. (And supplying me with great easy projects.) The November issue featured two Etsy finds I’d love to call my own. The first is this great Power Suit Tote Bag by CLEVERSCENE, which is in fact a bag made from an old suit coat. The second find is a steal at $25: a handwoven cotton wrap basket from kittyallen. –Sarah L.

Nice Bag! We’ve always loved Country Living magazine too, though we must admit it’s been a while since we checked it out.

So glad to see Cleverscene’s work featured. I own one of her Power Suit bags and I love it! It’s so professionally constructed and the attention to detail is amazing. This bag inspires comments wherever I carry it. There’s something so intriguing about taking that which is inherently masculine (a man’s suit) and making it work so beautifully for something that is inherently feminine (a handbag/tote)! Clever, indeed.
