We're Making Another Bag!!

Purse Materials
I've looked and I've looked and I'm not finding the bag we want—anywhere! At any price. So Sam* has decided that nothing was going to do unless she made another bag to suit her preferences as closely as possible.

She's a little insufferable when she gets like that. No is not an option.

I finally gave in yesterday and we have begun to build "the" new bag. The image above is a peek at the materials we'll be using. It won't be larger than the other bag we've made (you can see it here) height and width-wise, but this bag will be deeper. We need a little more room for camera lenses as well as sketchbooks, cameras, phones, umbrellas and a water bottle.

Sam has also insisted on a few other modifications. Time will tell if they're going to work out or not. Like I said, no is not an option. She knows best.

I've heard that one before too!

What fun things did your muse convince you to try this weekend?

*For those of you new to the blog, Sam is my muse. She's the one that convinces me to do crazy things, have fun, get in too deep and she occasionally gives me a serious kick in the backside when she thinks I'm slacking. 

And make bags, because you know, I really don't have anything else to do.....

  2. Can't wait to see what Sam does either! Every bag you two make turns out great. We'd all love to take the whole studio everywhere; its fun to see what each person ends up with as the necessities they can't do without. Pretty fabrics!

  4. It is about time Sam got 'let out of the bag' again! Sam has been hidden away far too long.
    P.S. thank you for alerting me to my typo today. What would I do without my guru.

  8. I've always wanted a magic bag - like Mary Poppins' bag - you can just keep taking stuff out and it stays little! your first bag was wonderful, it'll be interesting to see this one.

  9. Well, if Sam is tired of her old bag, she can always send it my way, it looks fabulous to me. Great fabrics and wonderfully practical. What a wonderful muse to have. You could market those bags, that's for sure!
