May You Be Inspired Days: Pocketwatch Bag

Since it is the first day of May, I thought I would start featuring one item each day that I have either created or find amazingly inspiring! I'm calling it May You Be Inspired Days! Today, I thought we'd start with an item I made that was inspired by several others that I also love. Here's mine:
I call mine a Pocketwatch bag. But my sources of inspiration call it by many other names. You should definately check out:
And make sure you check out Floyd's Coin Purse over at Urban Threads

And if you don't want to make one yourself, dart over to my Etsy Store and you can pick up one there. I love to do customs. And if you tell me you saw it in my blog, I'll even ship it for free! What would you love to see on a bag? :)

And to sweeten the deal, I'll give away one of the items from the
on June 1st! All you have to do is:
1. Become a Follower of StressTheSeams
2. Comment on one of the posts this month telling me what you would love to win!
International readers will have to pay their own shipping, but American followers will get it for free!
I'll close entries at 1am eastern standard time on June 1st and use the fabulous random number generator to select one wonderful winner. The prize will be a surprise for the reader, but I might just be looking at what they say....hint, hint! :)

So go become a follower and comment! And there will be other ways to get extra entries as the month goes on, so don't miss a day!

And check out another fabulous giveaway at Twice Remembered!

I like the pocket watch pouch. I'm absolutely terrible at sewing zippers in, I tried a little pouch like this and it is terrible. I could use one of those. If I am lucky enough to win it you can contact me through
