You'll also get a coupon code for that product (anywhere from 5% - 20% off) - good for that week only! Come Monday, there will be a new product featured. DON'T FORGET TO READ ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM TO GET THE CODE! I have also decided not to do any more storewide sales for the foreseeable future, so these features may be your only chance to get a sale price.
Each of these bags is one of a kind. There will never be another exactly like it. Sure, there may be some similar ones, but the lining may vary. The strapping may vary. The exact color might be different. This is your chance to get a great deal on a unique piece from Rosy Toes Designs.
This week's feature is the Celtic Scroll Felted Wool Messenger Bag. Let me just say how much I just love this bag. I love the tone on tone of the scroll work and the bag. I love the brass zipper (I usually stay away from zippers, but have grown to love using them). I love the retro element of the lining. O.k. I just love the bag. If I didn't already have about half a dozen of my bags hanging in the closet, I'd keep this one for myself.
Let me say, that this bag took way longer than expected. While knitting an i-chord is fairly quick, it adds up when you have to make four or more of them. Then there is the placing and sewing on of each chord.
I was a little concerned that when I felted the bag with the chord on it that I might get some bag distortion when felting, or that the parts would felt at different rates. Sometimes different stitches will do that.
Thankfully it all came together!
