Jan's Z Bag

I've got to start posting more updates here! I've been showing progress on FaceBook (if anyone out there would like to be FB friends, please zip me an email to my address in the left-hand sidebar!) so I'm using that as my excuse. Couldn't be anything else. :) I've got a lot of ground to cover; I think I'll have to do multiple posts....

First up, is Jan's Z Bag! She asked for a specific wolf-themed fabric she knew I had and left the coordinates up to me and my Guide Dog for the Color Blind. Here's what we came up with:

Does it look too washed out there? Try it over on the flag holder! :)

And here's the back:

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

Do you like the paw print charm and the glass bead? I thought they were both perfect picks! Here's the back of the HTP! Bag:

I had a lot of fun "fussy cutting" the wolves and appliquéing them onto the bag!

Dave and I chose a brown button, a brown and natural criss-cross print for some accents, and a variegated brown and natural quilting thread. Check out how they all come together:

Here's a look at some of the quilting:

The inside of the bag is two different blues - as are the straps.

Icy cold, yet a light, summery feel all at the same time! Here's a look inside the Z Bag:

Two very roomy pockets, with some fun embroidery at the top. Here's a better look at a pocket top:

Jan, I hope you enjoy your bag as much as Dave and I enjoyed making it. Trust me, your favorite member of the Ao4 worked VERY hard and was rewarded for his efforts!


Thanks for everything, Jan! It was a delight creating this for you!

And thank you for reading!
