Best Designer Bags: Ballistic Sweater Girl

Best Designer Bags: Ballistic Sweater Girl
PHOTO BY Celesta Danger

When we found ourselves in need of unique baby gifts earlier this year, craft designer extraordinaire Wendy Irwin whipped out signature, one-of-a-kind diaper bags that really hit the spot. Unfortunately, she no longer makes the roomy baby bags, but we were happy to be introduced to her line of purses, wallets, and reusable grocery totes. Irwin’s use of durable retro upholstery fabrics and clever adornments renders each bag a personal and functional work of art – the kind of thing your baby, or even your baby daddy, will carry with pride.
