A Commission Bag that Matches the Day

Yesterday, we caught the perfect sunny warm day with no wind to plant seeds; leeks. radishes, scallions and lots of beets. To day it looks like rain and the wind is back, how perfect.

Rat Packers Dream

This very secure bag is great for a mid size load that you don't need to access often. On the back exterior of the bag are the quick access pockets, one for cell phone with a snap closure and a 6" wide slip pocket, great for metro card..etc, and a D-ring for securing keys.

Hand Stitching

I love hand stitching, I spend a lot of time here in the studio, it's very centering. Philip Glass is playing in the back ground, as he often is, repetition, your hearing CIRCLES with Arturo Stalteri, pianos.

Just filling space right now. Not sure where it's going image wise, I have some vague ideas, nothing solid, a strong impression of white and a sense of where the action will be.

Bag School

Lap top prototype. Well, I think I nearly broke my machine and my spirit on this one. It is very heavy, distressed, canvas lined with the brilliant idea of felted sweater pieces for padding and water resistance as well as all recycled. I seemed to have made quite a few mathematical errors that needed a lot of redoing in the end. But after all that, I love it and it kept my lap top dry and safe during the recent ice storm. I'll be doing some refining on this one. Oh, and I can't wait to get a heavy duty commercial machine to plow through endless layers of stuff.
