I have spent quite a bit of time redesigning the Bajan Bag. I wanted to make it bigger and sturdier. The straps are also wider. I am truly known as a bag lady. I'm always carrying at least 3 or 4 bags at a time. This is my everything bag. Everything that's not in my pocketbook, not in the diaper bag, not in my lunch bag, goes in the Bajan bag. My sweater, newspaper, latest Vogue, and my yarn (normally!).
