People Behind the Purses: Gus Scott

thumbnail image for blog post: People Behind the Purses: Gus Scott

I couple weeks ago I got to take a road trip out to Rapid City with my favorite 11-year-old, and man, do I love this kid! It’s hard to believe he’s almost a teenager! 

From day one, Gus has been our easy, outgoing son. He’s very self-disciplined and task-driven (wonder where he got that?), and he’s very sensitive to how others are feeling. He is also still my biggest snuggler — I hope puberty doesn’t change that! 

Gus is a natural athlete, which is why the duffle bag is a perfect fit for his name. Gus could throw a ball and hit it in the air when he was still wearing onesies, and his love for sports has never wavered. God has given him natural talent, and I’m so thankful he knows to give credit where credit is due. 

When I was designing the duffle, Gus was just adamant that I had to name it after him! I wasn’t sure at first, but it’s gone over really well! This bag is perfect for the gym, or for an overnight stay. Everyone in my household has one (except Gus because he can’t decide on a fabric), and they are so great for a weekend away at Grandpa and Grandma’s!  

I love the Gus duffle because I love big bags. Period. When I go to design, I naturally go big! I don’t know if it’s because I love fabric, but I just love big bags. So this duffle is great for showing off the fabric of your choice, and it’s even cuter now that you can get a colored zipper!  

To see the Gus duffle up close, here’s the Facebook video we did a few weeks ago. To get to know Gus my son, just keep reading. :)
