Trace's Super Shopper!

It's done!  With a big hug and a cookie for my Guide Dog for the Color Blind, I'm happy to report that Trace's Super Shopper is complete!  All that's left is finding a nice box and sending it on its merry way to Australia!  Here it is!

The Super Shopper

I love how it came together.  If the pix are a bit fuzzy, it's me.  Note to self:  Don't shoot pictures when we have wind gusts over 50 mph.  :)

Here's a detail shot:

The green with the light purple accent is one of two outer pockets - one on each side.  The other side is identical - no need to show you!  

I quilted in a King Tut purple mix; here is the side tag area:

I love King Tut threads and really think it helped "make" this bag!

Here is the top of the bag, at the strap area.  Check out the lining popping up; is it cute enough?

And I think you can see what I mean about the thread rocking it.

Check out how cute the top of the straps are:

It's the light purple from the pocket tops with a tad bit of the main fabric on either side.  Very cool!  The straps themselves are the chocolate brown in the main fab, with some batting inside to make it comfy on your shoulder.

You want to look inside, don't you?  OK!

I LOVE the lining fab!  Good call, Guide Dog for the Color Blind!  (How can he remember about fabs I've forgotten?)  Trace wanted lots of pockets, so I put that green one on the inside.  With an "X" to mark the spot.  ☺  

Here's a deeper look:
 
Oooh!  What's that?!!?  Why, it's the multi-purple Huffle Duffel that Trace seemed to like!

And it would appear that my Quality Control Expert (Zim) has tucked a few things in there expressly for his best friend Huffle.  He wants it to be a surprise for her, so I'll say no more.

Did you notice something tucked in the inside pocket of the Super Shopper?  I'm trying my hand at headbands, and Trace is going to try out a flannel one for me.  Here's a look at it:

These 'bands have gone to Shelli, Kathie, and to Valerie:

Feel free to click this for a larger view, too!

They're reversible and machine-launder-able.  (Spell-check let that fly, so I'm leaving it.)  Hit them with a hot iron, just avoid the tag or it will melllllllllllllt.  Thanks for testing them!

Trace, look for your package in a week or two!  I hope you like everything!

Thank you for reading!

Dave did a great job picking out those fabrics and you put them together beautifully! And that is sure nice of Zim to fill that Huffle Duffle for them!

Love the colors - so glad you added the green touches. The handle is interesting too, very unique with all the colors together. We love our headband, little miss K likes to wear it too.

Another masterpiece.

Woos, the OP Pack
