If you read the Ao4 Digest this morning, you'll know that Zim has his own bag to hold bags now, too. Here's a look at it in the Studio:
I tried a little quilting on it, just to see how it would look and how easy or challenging it would be. I think it adds a nice touch - and really no tougher to do than any other quilting. Just use your walking foot!
I think the zipper was on an old backpack or fanny pack. It's nice and sturdy and the "pull" has a very nice feel to it.
Here it is in action, so to speak:
|"Totally cool, Mom! My very own man bag!"
I found a source for the bone-shaped carabiners, which just delighted me. I switched Cam's over to one that's a hot pink/reddish color. It goes nicely with her leash.
Speaking of man bags, I also made one for my hubby - to carry his iPhone and a flashlight for the early morning walks. In my stack of "heavier" bags, I found the perfect one - it's from the US Cavalry Museum! The bag went together really well. I was going to get Zim to model it, you know - keeping with the whole "man bag" thing - when ...
|Nice, tough bag!
I guess you could say a certain daddy's girl put her foot down. All-righty then!
|"This is for my DADDY!"
Thank you, Cammie.
He's already tried it out and loves it. Yea!
This is really fun ... and soooo incredibly addictive!
