A Dark Storm...

Sounds ominous, doesn't it? But it's a cool new Storm Bag! I had a great request for mostly black, with some bold pinks paired up with them. What FUN! Take a look:

OK, that's the bright side. :) But remember, the Storm is fully reversible. What's inside?

BLACKS! Let's flip it "inside out" and reverse it to the other side!

Yes, I do mix stripes and plaids. Who doesn't?!!? I love the look! The bottom is black denim and the blacks are homespuns; I paired them up with some interfacing to give them more body and substance.

For the pocket on the black side, I used the pocket from a pair of jeans, and lined it with the hot pink camo. Here's a closer look:

The pocket on the other side is the pink camo itself, with some decorative stitching:

I used a variegated black and white thread by Aurofil. Very fun and a great fit with this bag.

Here's a better look at the Hold the Phone! Bag:

The body of the outside is the pink camo, with strips of some of the blacks and the multi-color on black mixed in. Here's a peek inside of that:

One of the black stripes. :)

As I seem to do frequently, after I shot the bag, I remembered I hadn't added the beads to the HTP! Bag. Here's a delayed photo of that:

The pink beads are glass; the end caps are pewter. I thought the end caps brought the black and white theme back in! Oh, yeah... and they're hanging from a fishing lure because I LOVE using them!!!

It should be landing in Missouri tomorrow; thank you so much for ordering!

And as always, thanks for reading!
