GKTW Fundraiser: Handmade Disney Caribbean Beach PrintTote Bag - NOW CLOSED

I had posted previously about finding the fabric Disney uses to make the bedspreads in the Nemo rooms. My mom and I have worked to turn them into tote bags! We just finished making 10 of them!

We are now selling them via eBay charity auction with 100% of the money made going to GKTW.

Here is a link to the auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...#ht_500wt_1356

They measure about 12 inches high and the straps are about 12 inches long. They are about 14 inches wide. When measuring the width, we noted that the bags can fit three two-liter bottles of soda in them. However, I don't think they'd hold up to toting around that much, just FYI.

Here are some photos of the bags:







Since 100% of the profits are going to GKTW, if you are running a meet and want a tote for a raffle/silent auction or whatnot, PM me and we can work something out.

Mom and I are working on making a second, larger bag using Crush the turtle as the focal point.

Any questions please don't hesitate to ask!

I'm going to drop the price of the bags to $20.00 since we haven't had a buyer yet!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI...#ht_500wt_1356

We have nine of the bags and they are fully-lined, handcrafted bags!

I also wanted to share a second bag we made, featuring Crush.



We have four of those and will be selling them as well, if people are interested.

Sorry Cristen- I didn't realize you had these available already!
I just bought 2 of the Nemo bags and am interested in the Crush bag as well. How can I get that one?

Have you posted on the DIS Cruise boards?
Maybe one of our podcast team could mention these on the next recording day?

I think they are adorable!

Hooray for my first sale!

I haven't posted on the cruise boards. I might do that an then in resorts. I bet the people in the CBR thread would be interested!

I'm going to put the Crush bags up for auction tonight!
