Exceeded my expectations

I collected up my favorite tees and sent them to be made into a weekend duffle bag. The color assortment I sent was pretty bland (mostly gray tees with fairly monochromatic graphics). I am amazed what the Patchwork Bear team created! It is colorful and creative! They even utilized the front pouch from my hoodie as a pocket on one end - genius! I am absolutely thrilled with my one-of-a-kind bag!
