Kayla is my sister Diane’s best friend’s daughter. She’s 16 and trying to raise money to go to New York with her school choir. She’s working pretty hard at it, not just asking for handouts. For example, her latest endeavor is to deliver phone books (somebody has to do it!). That doesn’t exactly pay so great. One of the things that she is doing is making purses! And they’re CUTE. She crochets the exterior and lines them with T-shirts that have seen better days. I bought two. I am keeping the purple and green and fuscia one lined with a Sponge Bob T and I am giving the green and rust and cream one lined with a matching T to my niece. Here’s the thing….I would buy one of these even if it wasn’t helping Kayla reach her goal. A goal, by the way, that her parents think will be a great experience for her. It’s not as though they’ve said “you can go if you raise the money, but we think it’s a bad idea and we’re not going to pay for it.” So, here’s a picture of these ever so cute purses (the one I’m keeping is turned inside out, in case you weren’t sure!). If you are interested in buying a Kayla original Rag Bag then leave a comment. I’ll forward your info on to her. She’ll even make them special order. If you have a favorite T-shirt that you can’t wear anymore, but can’t bear to throw away, perhaps she’ll turn it into a purse for you! And what the heck, I haven’t done an unpaid product endorsement (UPE) for awhile, so let’s make this one of those!
