Love this bag, the fabric is beautiful with such rich colors. You can tie the straps to make it short or long and use for different things.

This little bag is the perfect size for a small wallet and a cell phone. The fabric is handmade and lovely, with rich vibrant colors. I love the idea of supporting the women of Guatemala who make these, and you can tell that they put a lot of care into the construction.

I got this bag after realizing my old sling purse was wearing out. I had high expectations because my old purse was so great. This bag has held up well. I carry a lot of things and this bag has so much room! The strap is just right. I just carry in on one shoulder though if you want it to go across your body you might look for a different bag. I love the zippered pouch I only wish the top of the bag had a zipper and not a button. I just keep important things zipped like my cellphone and keys. I love the color. The fabric is so beautiful and in the right light the gold tones shimmer. I think it gives the bag a distinct look. I use it everyday and get many compliments. Worth the wait for shipping!

I got this because my daughter brought home a similar bag from Guatemala that I coveted. This one is not quite as nicely shaped, squared off at the top compared to her curved top that nicely echoes the embroidered section. The fabrics on mine are not as detailed. This one actually comes via Overstock from a business that sells handcrafts from around the world to support artisans who otherwise wouldn't make a living, so if I get another it will be directly from there. They also sell lots of other interesting handcrafted textiles. The lining is awful, flimsy and slippery, without any pockets, the same as my daughter's bag has. I had to cut her bag's shredded lining out and replace it within a few months to add a sturdier one with pockets, so use a purse organizer or something to keep things from sliding around, pooling at the bottom and wearing through the fabric.

I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and saw this purse. I wasn't expecting it to look this cute! I especially like the extra long strap which gives me the option to wear it on one shoulder or over the opposite shoulder for that 'messenger bag' look. The purse definitely has a bohemian look to it and is very casual in fabric and design. Another cute feature that I liked was the elephant shaped buttons that close the front pocket and the main pocket of the purse. I would have liked a heavier fabric especially around the straps which take a lot of beating and endure a lot of weight. Maybe the fabric could even be doubled to give it a more sturdy appearance. Overall though, it's a cute purse at a nice price and came in a very unique paper wrapping which would make a very thoughtful gift for someone.

I had thought the bag would be of a little higher quality. That's not to say that it is bad quality, I just thought anyone purchasing it should know that this is a printed fabric rather than a woven or yarn dyed fabric. The purse is VERY roomy, you could fit another purse inside it. The coconut shell button is very nice and the way the button loop works, you have two options. The strap ties, so you can choose the length. To give it the shape in the photo - be prepared to stuff it full!

I really love this bag. Its a great color and a great fabric. I imagined it a little bigger, but I actually think it works well being small and portable. Its great for a quick trip that I don't want to take a big purse with me. Very Happy with the purchase and Overstock.com

First of all, I like getting NOVICA products so that is the first plus. The bag is quite roomy to hold all the sorts of summer stuff one carries. The fabric is a nice cotton and that is one of the other plusses: the shoulder strap clings to your clothing and this bag does NOT slide down or off your arm.I wish it had a couple more pockets inside; there is a zipper pocket. At least one more to hold the cell phone would be nice. Otherwise I am quite pleased with this purchase. I like shopping at Overstock in general.

This purse in nice and well put together, black sturdy lining, the color of the fabric is vivid. It looks just like the picture, no negative surprises. It's roomy and pretty.

It would be good for across the chest wearing. The strap is just cotton fabric, flimsy. I'll probably use it - but not all through the summer like I thought I would. The panel of burlap-ish embroidered section is quite nice and folk-looking, You could use it to carry your groceries home. Or a puppy. Not your bowling ball though.

Looks exactly like the picture. It also arrived quicker than I expected being shipped from Thailand. Love the detail and unique features to stand apart from department store purses. I like the design, fabric, wood knobs on the shoulder strap for the stylish and rugged appeal. It's big enough for necessities as I only carry a small wallet and phone but there's ample room for other small items. I'm a minimalist so this suits me perfectly and the shoulder strap length is perfect for wearing across the chest for easy access while I'm carrying my baby around.

Cute bag but looks more like a satchel than a purse. Ok for casual attire.

Travel backpacks offer a number of benefits for all types of travelers and may be an attractive alternative to larger tote bags, duffel bags and miniature suitcases. Whether you're traveling with a backpack over a long distance or traveling by plane with a small backpack as a carry-on, use a travel backpack designed with extra compartments and tight-fitting, portable style to ensure a comfortable travel experience. Easy to stow and store: The design of a travel backpack makes it easy to store it in overhead bins in a bus, train or airplane. The soft sides of a backpack let it conform to tight storage spaces. Many travel backpacks have compression straps that let you cinch the packs contents down to take up less space. Comfort: Travel backpacks put less strain on your body than most other kinds of luggage because their weight doesn't pull on one side of your body. Travel backpacks are designed to evenly distribute their load on your shoulders and hips, making them easy to carry for several hours. Thick straps with lots of padding make it even more comfortable. Keeps travelers organized: Many travel backpacks are designed with several compartments to store smaller items, such as water bottles, a cell phone, MP3 player, PDA, passport and subway tokens. This makes it easier to stay organized while traveling, ensuring that all your basic items and accessories are within easy reach. Easy to move around: Probably the biggest benefit of using a travel backpack is the ease of movement it provides. You don't have to worry about dragging a rolling suitcase up a flight of stairs. A travel backpack is also easier to maneuver through a crowd of people than most other types of luggage. Protects items from the elements: Many travel backpacks are made with water-resistant and waterproof fabrics that protect your valuables no matter what the weather forecast may look like. Travel backpacks made with polywick fabric, ballistic nylon and other weatherproofing materials are especially beneficial for travelers who will be outdoors for most of their trip.

Plan the perfect cowboy birthday party for your little cowhands and their posse with a Western-themed party. With the right decorations, games and food, you can create a hoedown that your child and his or her friends will remember for years to come. Find cowboy party supplies and crafts for a colossal cowboy party, and don't forget to capture every moment with your camera. Invitations. Create cowboy party invitations that look like "wanted" posters using recycled brown cardstock paper. Print a black-and-white picture of the cowboy or cowgirl of honor in the center and use an old-style font or block lettering. Include the time and place for the round-up on the cowboy party invitations. Use fun phrases such as "howdy partner" and "saddle up for the showdown" for added laughs. Ask guests to come in their favorite cowboy attire, including rugged jeans, flannels and boots. Decorations. For cowboy party decorations, cover tables with red and white tablecloths. Display "wanted" posters of the birthday cowboy or cowgirl throughout the cowboy party room. Add balloons in colors of red, white and blue. Shape strands of rope into lassos and place them on the tables or hang them on chairs. Use bandanas or a Western-themed fabric for place mats. Create large cutouts of cacti, horses and cowboys for decorations. Bales of hay, stalks of corn and other items can add to the cowboy party decorations. Place bottles of water or juice boxes in a wheelbarrow filled with ice for refreshments. Dress up. Costumes and clothing can add to the cowboy birthday party theme. Because all guests may not know each other, give each guest a name tag cut to look like a sheriff's badge. Use silver cardstock cut into star shapes and attach the name tags with safety pins or tape. Provide guests with bandanas in a variety of colors. Give each guest a straw cowboy hat and a water pistol for an authentic cowboy look. Games. Though cowboys can be serious, there is nothing like having several fun games planned for even the roughest, toughest cowboy to enjoy. If you're holding a summer party, tell all cowboys and cowgirls to bring their swimsuit for a shoot-out using water pistols. Have a galloping contest; use brooms as pretend ponies and have races to see whose horse is the fastest. Old-fashioned potato-sack jumping contests are easy to assemble. Hold a boot toss contest: Have children toss bean bags, gold coins or other cowboy party supplies into an old pair of worn cowboy boots. Food. Create an old-fashioned homemade spread, complete with a cowboy party cake. Barbecued hamburgers and hot dogs or sloppy joes are always a favorite for little cowboys and cowgirls. Salsa and chips, beef jerky and even pulled pork sandwiches are additional ideas. Corn on the cob and cornbread are traditional cowboy staples. Create a cowboy party cake in the shape of a hat, pony or boot to continue the theme. Goodie bags. Thank each guest for coming by giving them a galvanized pail filled with cowboy party favors. Fill each pail with a small amount of straw or hay. Add trail mix, gold coins and licorice rope to each pail. Tie pieces of raffia or fabric for additional decoration to the pail's handle. For other cowboy party favors, consider purchasing small plastic harmonicas, sheriff badges and cowboy figurines. View All Crafts Back to Guides Directory View All Crafts

Old, worn-out furniture often sticks around longer than preferred, creating some problems when it comes to redecorating a room.
