Cath Kidston Book Bag
Advantages: Wipe clean bag, brightly coloured and eye-catching
Disadvantages: All the stuff in my bag gets jumbled up and I can never find my car keys!
I used to LOVE the Cath Kidston products and had quite a large collection! I think they have become far more popular in the last couple of years and since Primark and other places have produced cheap copies of the designs, I'm no longer such a fan.
--- The Bag itself ---
I have the navy blue star print bag. It is made from 100% PVC coated cotton, often referred to as 'oilcloth' . It has long handles on with an inner pocket. Measurements approx 33cm x 38cm x 8cm. It was a valentines present that I chose myself from my husband! Poor man, after a few years he now lets me choose my own OR write a list. I'm not very keen on romantic suprise gifts!
--- What I use it for ---
The bag is a versatile bag and I have used it a great deal. I used to use it mostly as a changing bag when my daughter was around 2 years old, with a set of spare clothes, a drink and my wallet and phone. I find if I put many more things in there, I end up scrabbling around in there for my keys etc and have been left emptying my bag of all the contents on more than one occasion! It is still in quite good condition as it is wipe clean.
--- Price and Availability ---
I bought mine a couple of years ago from an independent gift/homeware shop in the town I live and it cost £18. I don't think this is available on the Cath Kidston website any more as they update their prints and patterns every season. You may be able to find this star print design on eBay or choose an alternative design. There is a lovely bird design on the website at the moment.
--- Overall Summary ---
I don't love this bag as much as I used to and haven't used it for a while now. However it is practical as it can hang on the pushchair handles or hang off my shoulder BUT I don't like the fact it doesn't have any compartments on the inside. A popper on the inside would be handy too. Saying that maybe I should just buy a different style of bag!
Thanks for reading
Summary: A bag which I don't love as much as I used to
