You know when you're making something and about 90% of the time it doesn't come out like you thought it would? And then there's that amazing 10% of the time when it does? After about six hours yesterday I finally got a backpack that I like. It's about time! I wanted to save it as a surprise for the upcoming photo shoot, but I'm wicked bad at surprises. So, surprise!

It's also come to my attention that I haven't really had any bags for sale since January. What? Am I crazy? It's funny that much time went by and I didn't realize it. More bags and more frequent bag updates coming soon. I've been trying to save what I have for the summer photoshoot (not this weekend, but the following), and hopefully after that there will be a steady flow of market totes and such available for purchase. I'm also excited to say my website will be getting a much needed make over, and hopefully a new shop too! Stay tuned for updates!

this is really beautiful, julia! there seems to be a lot of interest in backpacks lately, and this one looks great. i'm terrible at secrets and surprises, too.

i love it. great job! That's so exciting that feeling, I can understand. it's so hard to get what you want to really happen sometimes.

Julia! This backpack is awesome! I love it when things turn out just as you wanted them to.

I can't wait to see what comes out of that photo shoot. I hope the weather is perfect for it (assuming that you will be doing it outdoors).

It's perfect. I'm really impressed. I was just blogging about the trails of making and re-making a new product too. http://littleoceanandme.blogspot.com/2011/06/meet-chevrons-little-sister.html

Doesn't it feel great when you finally get it perfect?

i'm feeling you on the 10% of the time things do turn out perfectly- it's kinda magic and a lucky break from all the labor that goes into the other 90% of time spent getting prototypes just right!
