The Deeve is Done!

...and in the mail. Joni, you should have it by tomorrow!

I took it outside for a photo shoot before I shipped it. Let's take a look - front and back!





Sigh. I need one of these for myself. Here's a closer look at the buttons and placket:



I did double-stitching along the top, in keeping with the whole "jeans" theme, and used a golden-colored thread. Here's a look at the quilting:



Incredibly fun to do!

Here's a closer look at the beads I put on the Hold the Phone! Bag:



The square wooden ones are over 50 years old! They used to be a bag my mom bought in Panama when my dad was stationed there. I saved them and they've made their way into lots of projects through the years!

Here's the back of the Hold the Phone! Bag. I love how it came out.



I'm not sure why I took this next shot, but I like it:



Who knows. Let's take a look inside the Deeve Bag, shall we?



Room for EVERYthing. I currently carry a Deeve (not half as cool as this one...) and I love how "pick it up and go!" it is.

Joni, I hope you love your new bag! Thanks for your order!
And thank you for reading!

Hey there, Karen
You are my new hero!
I can't believe that I haven't been to this blog of yours yet!? I am quite stunned. Your bags are absolutely beautiful and super inspiring. My sewing machine is currently gathering dust - despite me having quite a few pieces (to say the least) waiting to be put together.
I am soooo impressed! You are really a true inspiration and so generous to simply share all your wonderful creations. I know this sounds cliche...but I WISH I could sew like you. If you were closer, I would ask you to give me a lesson or two.
Thank you so much for this link (in your email). I will most certainly be following you!...and perhaps reuniting with my sewing machine ssoon(?)
With love
