I've had this custom order to fill and got it done and shipped today. It's amazing how much I can accomplish when I'm not tripping over my kids. The best part is that I still get 2 mornings a week and every afternoon with my little guy. Then walks and dinner when my big girl gets home. I'm feeling like one lucky mama.
I think this may be one of my favorite bags I've ever made. It's o.k. to say that, isn't it? I didn't want to give this bag up. But, then, it was nice to earn some money. Plus, the young woman who is the recipient just happens to be a person who chattered away to me in the car as I drove her to Kindergarten. Now she's starting her first year at high school. Wow. I'm sure it's only her that's getting older. Definitely not me.
I taught myself how to do a covered zip pocket for this bag. I was so excited. It's streamlined, nifty, and attractive. Patagonia, eat your heart out. You should have me as one of your designers.
