Handmade (Work) Bag Round Up

This contributor post was written by Christina of Down and Out Chic. This is Christina’s first post as a contributor here on pns and I am super excited to have her aboard, writing bi-weekly round ups and gift guides for handmade. Take it away Christina…

I’m starting a new job in a week or so (yay!) and am looking for the perfect handmade workbag. I need a bag that’s big enough to hold all the essentials without being cumbersome. Here are some options that I’m currently loving at a few different price points:

1) flo tote bag $49 via fabric & handle

2)  play bag leather and canvas $78 via quote

3) agatha fold over in distressed brown leather $172 via rebyc

4) navy white striped tokyo bag $49 via rib & hull

5) diamante tote bag $96 via proud mary

6) 2 tone tote in pure wool herringbone $105 via infusion

7) natural canvas and leather percy bag $110 via sidney & sons

8) workhorse bag $222 via missibaba

Hey Cassie. Thanks for stopping by. I love the leather leaf bag (my favorite is number one though).
