Mary's Classic Wool Bag

I’ve had this idea kicking around in my head for quite a while (there’s bunch more where this came from) and I finally got the time and the impetus to turn it into a bag. The impetus goes by the name Mary. I met her online through Veronica (who I swear knows at least 25% of the women on the internet), and we chatted a little by email about what type of bag she would use, favorite colors, shape, usage, etc. She was a great client. She answered my questions honestly and after having given it some thought. And she was very agreeable to my ideas (totally like a Project Runway challenge, yo!) and offered a few that really helped me pull through to get something I would be happy with.

So I finished up the bag, packaged it up, shipped it off, and (as I always do) bit my fingernails until I got the “Yay! I got it! I love it!” email. And now that Mary has had the opportunity to use it a few times, and I’m delighted to brag that she’s gotten a few compliments, I’m ready to make it available for sale on Etsy. There’s only one more available, but this shape will be showing up in some other great fabrics very soon. evil laugh
