One little paw

I finished the second of four bags for my friend’s special order.

I don’t think these pictures do the colors justice. The corduroy is an olive green, the dark stripe is a plum purple, and the light stripe is a lavender.

The green and purple — Chellie’s choice — is not a combination I would have picked on my own. Not for any other reason than it’s simply not a color combination that I typically work with. But I’m very happy with how it turned out.

Notice anything?

Anything at all? Perhaps something (or someone) that wasn’t invited and shouldn’t be there, yet somehow always manages to sneak her way into pictures?

I’ve had a couple of people ask me about my labels. I purchased them online through The design I chose is one of several very cool (in my humble opinion) standard options, which meant I didn’t have to pay an outrageous amount or purchase a ridiculously huge minimum quantity like I would have with a completely custom design. The company is in Thailand, so shipping took a few weeks, but it was worth it.

Perhaps someday I’ll be ready to spend a lot of money on 1000 custom labels. But not yet.
