Did everyone have a great Easter? I still have most of my easter eggs left as I’ve been too busy to eat them which, considering I only had 3, is quite an achievement for me! Mind you one of them was one of these > > >
if you’ve never tried Hotel Chocolat then do.
Children have been back at school 4 days and although I’ve been working ever since they returned I haven’t had a chance to add anything to here. I had planned to do so this morning but then I realised that if I didn’t go and do some food shopping none of us were eating this weekend. Which may benefit my waistline (what waistline?) but really wouldn’t be a good idea. It seems that no matter how much older and more grown up my children get they still don’t actually realise the cupboards are empty nor offer to food shop. They notice if we’re running out of chocolate spread or biscuits quickly enough though!
I have managed to finalise the pattern for a bag style that has been confounding me for a while though. Trying to line a 2 compartment bag with a fixed divider and achieve a perfect finish around the zip top proved to be less straight forward than I had anticipated but I got there!
This bag has been named Script by my budding actor/director daughter (the teenager who believes the world begins and ends at The Nottingham Playhouse) who decided it was the perfect size for carrying her scripts in. You don’t need to have any scripts to carry though, I don’t and I originally designed it to be the perfect size for carrying magazines without having to roll or fold them for those long hours we parents spend sitting around waiting for our children to finish their various activities.
With a central divider there are 2 internal pockets and a full zip closure at the top. Additional pockets, internal and external, can be added as per your wishes, this one has a full width wrap around external pocket on one side. Strap length can also be made to whatever length you wish or, as with this example, be adjustable. It holds snacks well alongside those magazines I’ve found.
My youngest daughter has taken possession of the very first prototype of this bag as her school book bag, she doesn’t care about the wonky lines and ragged edges inside of that one, apparently it’s the perfect size for school books as well!
Of course if you are an actor or anyone else who has and needs to carry scripts then yes, it is the perfect size for them. Or you could just pretend that’s what you have in it anyway if you want.
This one already has already found it’s new home but I’ll get some more of these Script bags made up and added to stock soon but it is of course available as a custom order already – just get in touch and let’s talk about how you want your Script bag to be. And of course a custom made Script doesn’t even have to be script size, it can be any size you want!
