has the story behind the girl making the bag
Once upon a time, Angie Bowlds was just another seamstress with a day job, pulling threads in her off hours to bring in a little extra cheese.
Then Bella Swan moved to Forks. And she needed a bag.
Bowlds had a few she'd stitched together for Velouria, a trendy Ballard boutique featuring the works of local designers. Twilight producers loved it, and Bella took the bag.
When her sharp-toothed squeeze rescued her in his shiny Volvo, the bag was there.
When Bella had better things to do than watch her friends try on prom dresses, the bag was there.
But, then something happened that the bag did not expect.
It became a hit.
And suddenly the part-time seamstress became a full-time bag lady, serving orders all over the world.
For $175, you can have one, too.
It just may be a few weeks.
In fact, thanks in part to Bowlds' success, and other money that flowed into the Northwest to shoot Twilight, some legislators are thinking about new ways to lure production companies to the region.
There are still three more books that could be spun into Hollywood gold.
And let's be honest, we look a hell of a lot like B.C., which is traditionally more generous with the Hollwood types.
That bag could be anywhere!
But, there's no mistaking it was built on Bowlds' sewing machine.
