I also dropped a hint that I had a special surprise for Shelli - Sitka's mom! I was inspired by the VERY cool black floral fabric she sent me, so I took that and invited it to play with others I had on-hand. Here's is Shelli's Storm Bag and its coordinating Hold the Phone! Bag:
You can also get a good look at the HTP! Bag there. And remember, the Storm Bag is reversible! Here's a look at it "turned":
In that shot, I have the handles/drawstrings pulled double, so it's like a handbag; in the first photo of the bag, they're in the extended shoulder bag length. The Storm does adapt well!
Here's a detail shot of the top-stitching I did on each of the pockets:
Here is a look at all three bags together:
Aren't Shelli and Sitka going to look STYLISH together?
Here are a few close-ups of Shelli's HTP! Bag:
I couldn't decide whether to do the quilting and top-stitching in pink or green, so I opted for both. I also appliquéd some of the pink camo twill (a fav with two family members) on the outside:
Along with holding a fresh supply of "Good Neighbor" bags (my term for plastic bags you carry to police up after your pup!), Zim thought we should tuck a treat in there for his favorite girl!
Oh! I quilted in Glow in the Dark quilting thread! Not sure if it will actually "glow" on those late-night/early-morning walks, but it looks cool in the closet - LOL! Here's a shot of that:I actually did try to take a picture of it in the dark closet, as did Shelli, but that just doesn't really work! She did send a SWEET picture of Sitka with her new bag:
I'm not sure, but I think Sitka will be happier with it hooked onto her leash. :)
