Michelle's RAL

I've been a busy bag lady lately! :) It's too fun; I'm thoroughly enjoying the process! Before I show you Michelle's Ram-a-Lamb, for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, please look in my sidebar! I've added a section of links to a supplemental blog, Bags by KZK Extras. There, you'll find more details about each bag, and bag owners modeling them! It may give you a better idea about which bag best suits you! Or maybe you'll need a few...

The latest Ram-a-Lamb went out to Colorado for Michelle. She asked for purple as the featured color; I sent her some pictures of different fabrics and she chose two that just SING together! She asked for fabric straps through grommets, like on Kathie's bag. Here's a look at the bag:

Here's a closer look at one of the pockets (there is a pocket on each side of the bag):

I used a YLI variegated thread ("Jewel") for the decorative stitching. I love the effect I got! Here's a peek inside the bag:

I think I would seriously consider using this one inside out on occasion. Just ... because.

Here's the Hold the Phone! Bag:

It is made of denim and both of the purples! Here's a closer look:

I couldn't resist doing the decorative stitching on it, too! It almost looks alpine, doesn't it?

I wanted to add some glass beads and a charm before shipping it out - here's a look at them:

Don't look for them on the other photos; I forgot to add them until I had already shot those. :)

Hope you enjoy your bag, Michelle!

Thanks for reading!

Oh my, I love this one! Dang it, I am starting to get the urge...I am using an ugly stroppy thing of my daughter's to carry my books and stuff back and forth work, to B&N, etc. etc.

This one is just simply gorgeous--the decorative stitching just is the final exquisite touch (okay the label itself is too!)

I absolutely adore my RAL bag! I couldn't have asked for more perfect colors & stitching. You did a wonderful job and I can't stop singing your praises to all my friends!
