What I Did Over Memorial Day Weekend...

It was a busy weekend of sewing (mostly) for me, and I thought I'd share what I finished up...

The brown & pink Wonder Dot Sadie in the background and the blue/brown Asian Floral Kerri on the right were both orders...and what's that on the left?

Well. I'd gotten a bit flustrated with the Posy Sock Sack. People either loved it or didn't, and I personally was hoping to make a change to it that involved a bit more than just widening the strap and attaching it in a more solid spot on the back of the bag for stability (the previous improvement). This time, I wanted to add a zipper.

First I have to tell you that it's something of a challenge to do...

And then tell you that I've now made two of them. I won't show you the first one, altho' it's fine, or I wouldn't have done this one! :) Still prototype bags seldom get shared here. Please note the inside is just the same...pocklets on the left of the bag for dpns, pens, crochet hooks and a larger pocket on the right for cell phone or what have you.

The zipper keeps all those things from accidentally tipping out onto the floorboard of your car (yes, I know...)

Now the surprise. Rather than just have a "updated Posy" I've renamed this one. You're looking at {drumroll...}

The Rosy-Posy. Here's why: If you're a sock or small project knitter and you'd like to have the pockets made of the flannel I've always used to cushion and protect your delicate bamboos, then I'll make you a Posy; but...if you're not a small project knitter, but just like that this is a small, single strap backpack bag? Well, just order a Rosy...and tell me if you want those pocklets for pens and such, of it you'd rather not...and I'll do two pockets (or a couple of pen pocklets and the remainder in two larger pockets) and I'll do them in a regular cotton print/solid to coordinate with the rest of the bag.

(No change in price, either...$39 either way)

And of course, if you're a happy camper with the way Posy has always been? I can do that, too!

So...tell me what you think, okay?

My goodness, you have been busy! The zipper must be very tricky to sew in, but it looks perfect.

Well I may have to try a Rosy, but I'm glad you kept the Posy because I love it. BTW, what I did was adopt 2 meezers!

Wow!! I love the dragon fabric in the new bag. You keep finding such great prints.

Wow, a new model! I love the green fabric, and think that a zipper is the perfect upgrade. I always worry about knocking a bag over and having stuff scatter all over the place.

I love the dragons. Zippers are a must for me. Love the new bag! I also love how you're always tweaking bags and coming up with brilliant innovations.

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.
