Two New Robots on Etsy



This afternoon, I created two new robots for my Etsy store. I have been itching to do this, and I am quite happy with the results! Though these were made to be sold separately, they actually look pretty cute together. A note sits at the bottom of each description, suggesting that they be paired. Hope they end up going to the same home. ♥

The bag itself is a map bag from a military surplus store. Inside is an additional white bag with a cat pin on it for quick, small purse needs. Thank you, Beth!
