Rhonda's Huffle Duffel!

My excuse for being late with this post is also FaceBook... and posting the progress on the Ao4 Digest. I mean... letting Dave post it to the Ao4 Digest. Not only did we wrap it up on Take Your Dog to Work Day, this Huffle Duffel was for Rhonda, Joe Stains' mom! I had to let him. Umm... and then not post myself for a while... (Please check out the link to Joe Stains' blog to read his post about the Huffle Duffel when you have time; the pix are just adorable!!)

Moving right along from the "my dog ate my homework" excuse.... Rhonda wanted a Huffle Duffel to tote her things to the Arizona Diamondbacks games and to have it reflect their colors. Dave and I worked hard picking just the right reds. Here's what we came up with!

I did some fun meandering quilting on it in a variegated white to black thread. Here's the back:

What a blast! The drawstrings are some black cording housed inside a black on black sleeve thingy. (I hope I'm not getting to technical.) The lining is a great red, black and white print I bought in Korea:

I think it totally rocks the bag.

I thought Rhonda needed a glasses case, too - I mean, it IS Arizona; the odds are real good she has a pair of sunglasses she wants to have at the games!

I also used the white to black thread on the case - take a closer look:

I love it!

Rhonda, I hope you love your new Huffle Duffel! And if you DO need a larger one so Joe can try to sneak into the games, just let me know. I think I could do a Boston Terrier-sized one. :) Thanks for ordering!

And thank you for reading!

At first I thought you put some sort of divider in the Huffle Duffle... then I realized from the next photo it was the glasses case, lol!
