Nana's Got a Brand New Bag!

Soon after I made up those lovely little drawstring bags, I was asked by one of my good customers about altering it to make a project bag for her spindle. We chatted back and forth...
The end result, after ordering the cutest fabric just for her bag, was this brand new, original Nana Sadie Rose design:

Nicely sized, generous even...15 inches high and 8.5 wide with enough structure to protect a spindle and such inside but not too much. (Not as much as a regular Nana Sadie Rose bag, for example). That green piece up at the top? That's a wristlet loop, the photo didn't do that justice obviously.

And inside, there's a loop to slip the shaft of your spindle down in, with pockets sized for whatever you might need: a total of 7, 4 slender ones and three wider ones. And of course, the drawstring to snug everything up securely.

I decided that this bag will be available currently as custom orders only, with three options for handles: the wristlet loop, a 15-inch single shoulder strap, and an across the chest style. The different lengths of straps will require a bit of an adjustment in price based on your choice ($3 at each increase in length).

(I might add, that while this is designed to be a spindle bag, it will work easily as a small project bag, too.)

I like it! Hope you do...
Oh, all my bags have names, right? This one is the Teabird after the good friend and faithful customer who inspired it!. Thanks, Melanie!

It's even cuter and better-organized than it looks in the photos! Brilliant, Sallee!

Thank you so much for the honor.... I never had anything named after me before.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
