I don't know if you remember or not but awhile back I did a bigger bag for Borsa Bella called the Hobo Bag and I got it in the London Fog color scheme and that is also what this Small Gadget Bag is, the London Fog color scheme so that it matches my Hobo Bag which is below so you will see what I am talking about.
The Small Gadget Bag has these features:
- Zipper Closure
- Machine Washable
- Handmade in the USA
- Fits iPhone 3, 4 and 5
- Fits a device up to 5" x 2.5"
The reason I got the Small Gadget Bag was because I thought it would be awesome to have on those times you just need to run a few errands and don't need to bring your whole purse with you. It has a deep pocket that you unzip at the top and it also has a side zipper to slip something in there also. So, my thought was cell phone in the main body and credit cards, ATM card and Driver's License in the small side zipper.
If you need to take a check or something I would just tear a few out and place inside the larger area. I don't think a whole checkbook would fit in there, because the check holders will be too long. You might get the checks by themselves in there without the letter part. I hadn't thought to try that. But, what it really was designed for was to be the perfect bag to carry your iPod, phone, MP3 player or camera in.
See, what I mean by versatile? There is also a clip on the handle where you can clip to a belt loop, belt buckle or even your purse so that your hands are free. Or you can clip your keys to the Gadget Bag so that you won't have to hold them and the Gadget Bag at the same time. If you have a small set of keys they will go inside the pouch, but I have a collection of trinkets on mine, so it would have to be clipped on.
All Borsa Bella bags have ample padding and soft quilted fabric inside, ensuring your contents stay safe. Like all Borsa Bella bags, the Gadget Bag is washable and they have numerous designs to choose from! I know you will find the right one for you just like I did. I almost chose this one then realized it would not go with my Hobo bag:
This one gives you a little bit better idea of what I was talking about. See the wide black strip? That is the outside zipper I was talking about to put your cards and cash in. Then the top zipper is where the clip on is at the top where you can slide bigger things into the main body. You can actually buy the strap to make this a very small crossbody type bag if you wanted. The interior lining will be either black, gray or brown.
You will come to love these bags as much as I do if you spend some time over there and just muddle around a bit. You can even have your bag monogrammed to make it extra special if it is a gift to someone. I did get a monogrammed cosmetic bag one time and I treasure that thing more than anything else I have. So, it does make a difference, hint, children, for Mother's Day!
Borsa Bella has been kind enough to offer the winner of my Mary's Cup of Tea Mother's Day Package that starts on April 14th and ends on May 12th, their own choice of a Small Gadget Bag! Open in the U.S. only. Good Luck Everyone!
