Finally finished a long-rusting metal project and we are finally getting up to speed for our holiday bag production.

This gate was a trade for a massage that I got about 6 months ago – now I don’t have to feel slacker every time I see it leaning on my bench.

In the spirit of salvage and found objects, this project is 100% reused items (except welding rods…) thanks ReStore!

Purse flap detail.  Hemp duffel bag, canvas duffel bag, estate-sale camo suit, and part of an old ball cap that I have been saving for god knows how long.
