First of all, congratulations Jen! I challenge anyone to find a mum with more strength of heart and fabulous sense of humour than you.
Tilted Duster is finished! I like it better with the collar folded over like this. I want to get a hook to hold it closed. Apparently living in the textile district and working a few blocks away from here, is not enough incentive to get my butt into a fabric store to pick one up. Is this the kind of thing I can send my staff to do?? (imagining the blank looks with expressions ranging from “like a cup hook that you screw into the wall?” to “and what exactly does this particular errand to do for me?”)
Many requests for these…
The Tom Bihn on a real person:
The stats: I’m 5’0″ tall and am wearing a few layers, including a sweater and fall jacket…a combination thicker than my winter coat. The bag fits very comfortably over my shoulder. I can also carry the bag in my hand and clear the floor. To be able to do both at 5’0″ tall?? THAT’S good design people!
…enough room for the “one-handed-scoop-the-bag-up-onto-your-shoulder” move!
