Remember the bag I was working on back at this post? It was a LapPack. It was put on "hold", as apparently there are a few inches difference between a MacBook and a MacBook Pro. Ouch. Who knew? Well, certainly not me. Back to the drawing board. Or cutting table, as the case may be. (Fear not; I've found a good home for the other LapPack! It will be going to Hawaii with a couple other bags once I finish everything!)
I had to get a bit creative with what I had left of the pink peacock fabric. And sadly, I had no more of the bold blue. My trusty Guide Dog for the Color Blind helped me make some rather dramatic choices, and I must say, it came together well! Here's a look!
It looks sort of skewed there, but it really is "to square", i.e. a rectangle. It's sitting on top of a round-topped bush, so the shape looks a bit "off". I used all King Tut thread this time. :) Here's a detail shot:
Here's a close-up of the button:
Mega-thanks to Kathie, Shelli, Trace and Valerie for their input! I took an informal poll via email. And no, I don't think Kathie knew it was for her bag. LOL! I wonder if she would have voted differently....
Here it is, open:
Isn't the tie-dye a fun touch!? And it's not just there because I didn't have enough of the pink! Well.... OK, perhaps it is, but I love it! Dave picked that. I also didn't have enough of the tiny plaid blue lining... so we added some purple. Somehow, it works. I mean - don't you want some fun when you open your LapPack? I would!
Here is the back, with the LapPack open:
Cool, isn't it?
And we have to take a look inside!
I love how the quilting came out!
Kathie, I hope you like your LapPack as much as I do! It was mailed today; you should have it tomorrow or Saturday!
Thanks to all for reading,
