Getting Back to Rhonda's RAL...

I can't believe how much time has passed since my last post! I've been meaning show you the latest Ram-a-Lamb! This was a special order for a fellow Sibe owner Rhonda, down in Florida. In my last post, I showed you the fab she selected and what my ever-helpful Guide Dog for the Color Blind selected to go with it. Here's how it came out!

I love how the "wolves in snow" fab looks paired up with the denim! Here's a peek inside:

The black swirly fab is on the bottom and sides of the RAL. It helps bring the leashes and wolf fab together! Here's a close-up of the grommet area:

It's my first time using the nickel-finish grommets and I just LOVE them!

Also for the first time, I decided to fray the top of one of the pockets. I think it adds another cool point of interest. Here's a look:

Cool, isn't it? Can you see the decorative stitching, too? I used the thread Zim picked out for me on the tops of the pockets, to quilt the bag, and on the Hold the Phone! Bag. It's a Twister Tweed by Robison-Anton Textiles - Bear Brown color. Here's an even closer look at the other pocket; it gives you a great look at some of the stitching!

I made the HTP! Bag out of denim and added pieces of the wolf fab and the black swirls. It's also lined with the black swirl fab. Here it is:

I made the loop the leash hooks into out of the black swirl, too. I added some pretty glass beads and a paw print charm - I think they're a great touch! I did more decorative stitching on the bag, echoing the stitching on the RAL pockets.

Speaking of Echo... he placed an order for his mom today, so I'll start work on that shortly! :)

One last picture - the inside of the HTP! Bag and a good look at that decorative stitching:

That's it for now! Rhonda, I hope you enjoy your new Ram-a-Lamb Bag!

Thanks for reading!

Thank you Karen, I LOVE my R-A-L bag! It almost makes me sorry I'm not still working in an office so I would have more opportunities to show it off. Well, not really, but you know what I mean..
I just love all the little special touches, and the pack REALLY loved the special bag of AO4 fluff!
You are the best!

oh that is soooooooo beautiful.

How clever you are, and such lovely detail.

Thank you for showing me all the great work.

(Marvin is worried about the use of Grommit though - as always! ;0) )
