The Latest Z Bag

The latest Z Bag to come out of the studio has landed in Australia! I hope to post pix of Trace and her new bag (and Huffle Mawson, Explorer Cat and Honorary Husky!) on the Extras blog soon... but in the meantime, here's her Z Bag!

Here's the back:

Why, yes, the fabric IS rather bold, isn't it? :) The two main prints are by Kaffe Fassett. I quilted in a King Tut variegated purple (948, Crushed Grapes) ... here's a close-up:

Yeowzers; I love it! I used a very cool, huge button for the closure:

It was the perfect fit!

Here's the Hold the Phone! Bag:

Cute charm, isn't it? It's a cat; I actually thought it was a Siberian Husky at first. Since Huffle Mawson, Explorer Cat is an honorary Husky, it seemed fitting to attach it to Trace's bag. Here's a closer look:

Hmm. Yes, it IS a kitty. :) Here's the flip side of the HTP! Bag:

And a peek inside:

Here's a look inside the Z Bag:

Trace really likes the white/grey bricks with ivy fab (I used it in Jan's Boo Tote) and she asked if I could fit it in somewhere. Dave (GDFTCB) didn't put up too much of a fuss when I used it for the interior pockets, so I figured I was good to go with it.

I also tried my hand at doing a little key fob; I tucked one into Kathie's latest order, too (it matches her RAL); please let me know what you think! Here's Trace's:

There's a rumor going around that the latest "thing" at nail salons is to have a nail tech "chip" your polish for a chipped look. If we throw having short nails in, I think I'm finally in with the in crowd. :)

Lastly, here's the top of the straps:

What a fun, colorful bag. I hope you thoroughly enjoy it, Trace!

Thanks for reading,

This bag is beautiful and definitely not too bold. Glad I read this tonight because I totally missed the key fob in my new bag. Thanks, it is perfect.


Tracey and Huffle said...

I love love LOVE my new bag. Even Huffle is impressed with it - she keeps rubbing her head on it. I will send you photos this weekend.
