...and then the other.

I quilted in a variegated white-to-black. It was the perfect thread! Here's the back:
I used grommets along the top; they seemed to fit the nautical/pirate theme! The straps have so many options done that way! Shorter, as pictured above, or longer, as seen in this next shot:
I lined it with one of the fabs in the packet that really didn't quite "go", as per both me and my Guide Dog for the Color Blind. It's GORGEOUS... but didn't exactly fit. I thought it would be a wonderful lining:

I used one of my lovely big, black buttons for it - I love those buttons! And you can see the solid grey there for the scrunchy closure. I think it's a good match.

She liked that green, too, so I put some in. Well... OK... I put some in because I didn't have enough of the other fabric. :) But HEY, it looks cute. I did the scrunchie for the button out of the green, too:
Here is the LapPack open for business:
Cool, isn't it? And speaking of cool... I HAD to make Shelli a matching headband, too. For those of you who don't believe me about the curtains... take a look:
Shelli, thanks again for your support! I hope you and your dad will be thrilled with your new LapPacks!
I did a lot of thinking about just the right name for my new bag. It's a drawstring, so sort of a duffel bag. Small, yet bold. A bit wild on the inside. And cute. And so it became ... the Huffle Duffel.
The Huffle Duffel is quilted and fully lined. It has a double drawstring, to secure anything you’d like to tuck inside. It is fully reversible! Sometimes the outside is pieced, sometimes it isn't! A photo of the first Huffle Duffel is shown at right.
The regular sized Huffle Duffel measures 8 x 10" and goes for $20. Larger sizes are available for $30 and up.
Use your Huffle Duffel for CDs, computer programs, all those cords and chargers laying around, leashes and Hold the Phone! Bags, make up, or little cat toys! There is no limit to its usefulness!
The Huffle Duffel is named for our feline friend, Huffle Mawson, Explorer Cat and Honorary Husky, down in Melbourne, Australia. She is small, yet bold, and a bit on the wild side. And she is more than cute! ☺
Thanks for reading!

...when I got that sick feeling you get that something you don't want to have happen is about to happen. And then it did!
