Baba Yaga

Baba Yaga, a witch from Russian folklore, lives in a hut that walks around on chicken legs and flies about in a giant mortar and pestle. Many stories exist about her, but one in particular struck a chord with me as a child, and I have always remembered it. In this story, Baba Yaga holds a young girl captive, forcing the child to sit at the loom and weave. I am not a weaver, but the weave-like texture of this messenger style bag reminds me of the story every time I see it.
