The Cutest OR Bag on the Planet!

Okay, I managed to get a charging cable for my digital camera, so watch out! You are going to be bombarded by photos from here on out. I have the next three week's posts (with photos!) in my head - this is going to be so much fun! :)

So, as promised - the cutest OR bag on the planet!
First, a little background - many anesthetists carry some sort of bag into the OR with them. The contents vary, but often you want at least one reference book, a couple of types of stethoscopes, a calculator, and pens. I also carry a nerve stimulator (for monitoring depth of relaxation), my beeper, and some study materials for any down time.

Before now, I had an ugly, utilitarian bag. This was fine, but many of the women I work with carry cute little polka-dotted, quilted and beribboned bags that are adorable. And I had bag envy! But that is a thing of the past, thanks to the girls at Threads of Friendship and their fabulous giveaway, I am now a cute-bag kind of girl.

Behold:













How cute is that? Even though it's a small-ish bag, it easily holds four reference books, two stethoscopes, a calculator, a nerve stimulator, study cards, hand lotion, an assortment of pens AND my beeper and nametag. And sometimes a snack bar! Thank you, Kylie and Janelle - I love the bag so much I think I may need to find that pattern and make a few more, unless you girls decide to open an etsy shop (hint, hint!).

Terri that is really cute! I bet you look pretty stylish bee-bopping around carrying that!

Well, the bag is stylish and cute. I'll have to take a photo of what I wear in the OR to show you how stylish I am NOT in there - the stuff is pretty ugly! :)

It's a very "hip" bag and I'm so happy you won. I feel rather special with the crocheted hat I won in Melissa's giveaway. I need to have a giveaway myself and share the joy!

Terri said...

Thanks, Mildred! We're glad you won Melissa's hat giveaway, as well! :)

Hi Terri, We've just got home from our summer holidays down at the beach and I'm catching up on some of my blogging withdrawals! So glad the bag and treats made it to you safely, and I am so excited that you will put the bag to good use. Happy new Year and looking forward to reading your blog and catching up with the happenings at Clay Hill Farm! Love Kylie

How cool! That bag is very cute and functional! I always like when something that is useful can also be pretty to look at. :)

Terri - that bag is sooooo cute - even cuter in person if you can imagine that. The shape and style are so fun! I think it is the perfect size, any larger and you will have back injuries trying to carry all the stuff you pack into it! Great job ladies!

Hi Terri
I am EXTREMELY late commenting on this post. So glad you love your bag, that Kylie is one heck of a sew-er.
The kids have 1 more week of school holidays, then I am going to get stuck into making my PIF prezzies.
Blessings
Janelle xx
