Proof of Carry

I began making custom bags for the Letter Writers Alliance earlier this year. The bags have been far more successful than I imagined, and probably more successful than Kathy and Donovan expected. I’ve made three bags for the group of 2000+ members to purchase and am delighted to be talking about how to revise, adjust, tweak for future makings.

But I was even more delighted recently when Donovan posted sketches of the bags I’ve made and included a list of everything she carries in each one. To see a bag I’ve made in use is a great thrill, but to get such an intimate peek at every item that goes into it is a delight.

There were three bags I have made for them. The first bag I created was a large messenger bag that is able to carry quite a lot. The bag as Kathy photographed it is:

The contents of what Donovan carries are here.

The second bag was the pencil pouch:

Which Donovan is able to fit quite a bit more into.

And the most recent bag is a document pouch:

That can safely and securely carry quite a bit as well.

Collaborating with these women has been great in so many ways. They’ve been inspiring, encouraging, patient, and kind. I can’t thank them enough for the chance to work with them and get to meet some of their members. And while I love getting a friendly and flattering thank-you email, getting a friendly and flattering thank you letter is a true to delight to hold.
