About this project

and the winning idea for its category at this year's FastPitch competition sponsored by the Creative Coast (http://thecreativecoast.org/networking/events-we-love).

I am looking to raise $8000 to create handcrafted Bowerbags, made right here in America, with custom pattern designs created by up and coming artists, such as Matt Hebermehl (www.hebermehl.com).

If you're strapped for cash, donate $10 and get some really cool pins from myself and other local artists.

For a $50 donation you receive limited edition litho-prints from myself and local artists.

For $250 dollars you can send me an image and I'll create a custom screen print of whatever design you want. This is the chance to design your very own custom Bowerbag! The sky is the limit! Imagine your own Bowerbag, it can look or say what you choose!

For $500 I'll get you the pins, the prints, a Bowerbag with artist Matt Hebermehl's signature skull pattern, a custom Bowerbag of your own design, and some other handcrafted goodies.

For $1000, I'll make you a bag that does whatever you want! Tell me what your into and I'll make you a bag thats designed for your lifestyle! Check out this configurable bag we made using garments donated by Andre 3000 for charity. Its a bag that transforms into a shirt, with a blanket pull out, a champagne holder, a whole picnic get-up, it does all kinds of crazy stuff! This bag was purchased at a charity auction for Andre 3000.
