solsisters :: Thanatos Arrives When you least Expect tye dye handbag
Several years ago my brother Benjammin' Master Tye Dye Artist (http://www.benjamminkids.com, http://www.dharmatrading.com/autogen/featuredartists/html/52/, http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewProfile&friendID=147368199) made this pair of cord jeans. It took him over 12 hours to dye the pants. Unfortunately, the soda ash used to fix the dye reacted with the metal zipper and other parts and ate through the cord, rendering the pants unwearable. I've rescued one leg to make this shoulder bag. The front features a grinning skull. Thanatos (death in Greek) meets us all in the end. Under the flap, I've placed the original cargo pocket from the pants. The bag is lined in black and features an inside zip pocket with a green zipper. Black web handle. Bag measures 7" wide x 10.5" high x just under 3" acroos the base.
