Playing Today
I have been playing around today with an idea for maybe a differant item I could put on the Moonridge auction along with the quilt of cause. One year I made Table Runners! Last year I did Zine Covers! I was wanting to get some opinions on if you think these would sell.




Really a good size bag, nice and strong for traveling. Carry your book/full size zine MP3player, what ever. Was planning on making about 3 in differant colours. So what do you think??

I really like this idea. Have a cute picture of our favorite boys on one and I'd love it!

I can do that! Just trying to think up ways to make money for the zoo that I haven't done before.

Thanks!

You know, Janet, one in the quilt colors would be awfully nice! *hint, hint*

That I can also do! You want to pick the photo for me??

Are you kidding? I'd love to pick! How about this one?

You got it! One blue bag coming up!!
andeincascade From: andeincascade Date: February 1st, 2007 09:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
Excellent! I will start putting away some auction cash right now!

Now for the green one, I think a jungle theme. Something from Flight, perhaps?

Sounds good to me! Any suggestions.

I love it too...and yeah, would love it with a photo of the guys on there. What three colors are you considering?
justmej From: justmej Date: February 1st, 2007 08:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
I thought one in the blue's! Another in Green's! Maybe one in more earthy colours. I have just written to Jessie to see if I can use one of her manips on one of them.

Oh lovely...sounds wonderful to me. I think those are great color choices..and yes, not everyone likes the colorful colors, so an earth tone is probably a good choice.

I figured you would only use a bag like this when in casual dress jeans & such. Myself I love earth colours, they go with everything pretty much.

I'm not trying to be picky, but the only and I mean ONLY thing that ever stops me from buying a beautiful bag like that is that when it gets full the straps *DIG* into my shoulder. It hurts. I always love how they look and lust after them, but I know myself. I know I won't use them because I'm a comfort sucker. I just bought a new backpack for my laptop because the laptop bag I had was completely inadequate for my shoulder as the strap dug into me.
Le sigh... It is a completely lovely bag however!

The straps are 1" wide. I looked at making them wider but they didn't look right. Don't know how to make a backpack sorry! But if I ever find out I will post a photo here.

Great idea Janet. The bag pictured is lovely. With one biggish pic of the boys per side, or some smaller ones. Whatever combination you decide, is fine.

Thanks Chris! I will, if I have time make one up tomorrow. They said it was going to be a really nice day, so we might go to Lincoln on the bike. But will get one made over the week-end, so you can see what they will look like.

You are very welcome. Look forward to seeing them. (Earthy tones and green tones for the bags sound great too.)



P.S. Did you get the e-mail I sent? (I hope I've got the right address for you.)

Sorry Chris! I didn't get the email. jankee@foxey.me.uk

You know how I feel about them

being the proud possessor of one - *grin* - I think they'd be great! And if you did a couple of special ones, or even auctioned off one that would include pix of this year's moonridge, I *know* it would go over big!

Re: You know how I feel about them

Will you be having the raffel again at Moonridge? I could make one for that, with a picture of Garett from last year.
Then have the 3 with photo's for the auction as well.

Your bag hasn't fallen apart yet then??

Re: You know how I feel about them

I'm pretty sure we'll do the raffle again - it worked well last year - and your bag is just as good right now as it was when you gave it to me, and I use it A LOT!!!!

Re: You know how I feel about them

Pleased you are doing the raffle! Was great to watch Garett read out the numbers, he had so much fun with that.
So! Do you have a good photo of Garett at Moonridge last year that you would like to see on the bag?
Have a look while you are sorting that photo of Garett and his quilt for me.
