Phyll's Super Shopper

One of the really fun parts of doing the bags is being in on some sneaky stuff. :) Kathie contacted me a while ago about doing a Super Shopper for Phyll as a surprise for her birthday! How fun! (And happy birthday TODAY, Phyll!)

I was pretty familiar with her color preferences already, so Dave (Guide Dog for the Color Blind) helped me put together some amethyst purples and peridot greens. I put some feelers out within the SiberMal Society as to what the most popular handle-length was for the Super Shopper - long or short - and when Phyll voiced a preference for long ... I got to work! (Really. Sneaky is FUN!)

Here's the front of her Super Shopper Tote!

And the other side:

Yummy, don't you think? Here's a detail shot of the straps:

I used the poly pro again; it's really lovely to work with! And I quilted in a variegated YLI thread - Jewel.

Here's a peek inside!

The inside is quilted also, and has a nice, big pocket out of the batik with the writing on it. I LOVE that fab and was waiting for just the right project to use it in! Here's a close up of the outside - where pocket meets panels.

Kathie - thanks for letting me be part of the fun! And Phyll - enjoy your Super Shopper! Happy Birthday!

Thanks for reading,
KZK

All I can say is that I was so thrilled to be able to do this for Phyll. She is everyone's friend and a very special one of mine. And as always, Karen rose to the challenge and truly soared way beyond it. Another fantastic KZK creation.

Hugs, Kathie
