I'm over-due posting about this order, so let me just dive right in! It's another order for Cecile - and it was TONS of fun pulling everything together! It's split up into three areas: Pirate items, Penguins, and non-Penguins! Pirates first! Harr!
From the Pirate fabs, Cecile ordered a Super Shopper and a Storm Bag. I kicked in some other items, to make the best of the fabs. Here's everything just upon completion, in the Studio:
Super Shopper, Storm Bag with Hold the Phone! Bag,
Roger the Rat not included.
Let's take a look at the Super Shopper! Here's the front:
And a detail shot of the pocket area:
I quilted in a variegated white-to-black. It was the perfect thread! Here's the back:
On to the Storm Bag! Here is one side:
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:
Yes, it's the same bag, turned "inside out". Remember - the Storm is fully reversible! You get a completely different "look"! Here's a better look at the fabs on that "side":
I paired one of the pirate fabs up with some swirling water and recycled denim. I love it!
I took that same pirate fab and made a Huffle Duffel:
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:
Harr! It's lined with gold! Harr! ☺
I almost forgot! Here's a close up of the Hold the Phone! Bag for the Storm:
You get a better look at the quilting, too - I did sort of a twisted rope. Again, seemed "nautical"!
What next? The Penguins? Let's get to it! Cecile wanted a Boo Tote made from some sweet penguin fabs for a friend who's about to have a baby. Here's the front:
And the back:
All of our blue polypro options for the straps were the wrong blue. Black would have gone well, but for a "toting around baby stuff" bag? Dave and I like the yellow! Bold, fun, colorful! Here's a look inside:
Two more penguin fabs! Aren't they... cool? Ha ha ha, had to say it!
Speaking of cool, let's move on to the "non-Penguin" items! It's all Arctic wildlife! From this line, Cecile wanted a Deeve Bag. Here it is!
I totally love the look on that polar bear's face! :) I did some careful cutting to get him front and center, and made the placket shorter than normal so he could be showcased. The reverse side of the Deeve is wolves; I have no idea why I don't have a shot of that! I used a part of the fabric on the Hold the Phone! Bag:
I used clips of all the arctic animals on the HTP! Bag, tying everything together. Take a look inside the Deeve!
The fabs are so beautiful - and look at all the room in there! And a nice pocket! Check that out:
I used a lovely variegated blue for the quilting and top stitching on the bag, and did a cute little snow-flake looking stitch along the top of the pocket! I also did that along the top of the HTP! Bag:
Last, but not least, I tucked these little "extras" inside for Cecile:
Cecile, thank you so much for your order! Repeat business means quite a bit to me! I truly appreciate it! I also appreciate you sending pix of a VERY special, incredibly handsome model with some of the bags. Tune in tomorrow to see him! :)
Thanks for reading!

Excellent work again! I love the polar bear fabric, and Huffle is so very impressed with the Huffle Duffel :) That penguin bag is awesome! Yellow was the perfect choice.ReplyDelete
Those are all wonderful! I love the penguins and polar bears!ReplyDelete
They all look great! The polar bears are so cute! :)ReplyDelete
We love our bags.ReplyDelete
Oh my god, I have never seen so beautiful things in my life. I want some of that stuff so bad.ReplyDelete
Now I have a question: do you accept international orders? I'm from Athens, Greece and some of these would be awesome for me and my one year old basset hound Brandy.
Again, amazing stuff!
