When I last showed you progress on the Super Shopper, Dave, my Guide Dog for the Color Blind, and I had chosen the fabs, then I got started quilting and building! Here's a look at the interior pocket:
I opted for a nice long one, divided, with a little "pen" section.
After I got the bag "built", I needed to choose a strap color. I asked my FaceBook friends and Dave for input.
Dave liked the red. The red?!?! Crazy. I was veering toward the green. The blue looks better in the photo than in real life; it just wasn't the right blue. The pink never quite worked. FB friends were totally helpful - and after much thought, I decided to go with the green. As I told Dave...
...you snooze, you lose. The green is good!
Once I finished the Super Shopper, I got to work on a LapPack. We had an unpredicted line of thunderstorms rip through the other night. As I sat up with my storm-phobic Siberian, Stormy, I chose the quilting thread - then once she settled down for a light nap, I quilted the whole bag. I chose a sort of "lightning" looking design - how apropos! :) Here's a look:
I used the book to help gauge the right size for the specific laptop.
Here are the finished bags! The Super Shopper:
Up-close and personal with one of the outer pockets:
A FaceBook friend said the quilting looked like "Space Age" quilting. I LOVE that description! Here's a look at the top of the bag:
I love how the colors came together! Here's a look inside:
I made a little "extra" for Veronica:
I can't resist that fabric!
Here's the LapPack!
Pinks and greens and oranges! Very fun! The inside is pink camo. :)
And a touch of the camo on the outside. Just ... because!
Here's a close up of the button:
It's a hot green, sewn on with the variegated pink quilting thread!
These were a delight to make! Veronica, I hope you enjoy your Super Shopper and that your niece likes the choices Dave and I made for her LapPack! Thanks so much for your order!
And thank you for reading!
