One of my favorite bands is called the Decemberists. I don't know how to describe their music, but they are usually epic and some are consumptive chimney sweeps and ragamuffin orphans. They're fun to listen to and see in concert. Anyway, another reason they are so cool is that they were selling embroidery patterns for their band. There was a logo, plane, mermaid, and bike. My friend Katherine wrote to the merchandise website and since they had some left over from sales, they sent her a couple sets. She gave me one, and I transferred some of the images onto my Iron and Wine (another indie band) tote that Dan gave me. Viola! A perfectly indie tote.
