Freeform Knit Bag in Neutrals

I've been working on this bag for quite a while and am thrilled to have it completed. It will be for sale at the holiday boutique on November 10 (see link at left). I'm very pleased with how it turned out, but I would probably make the strap narrower if I had it to do over again.

I have no idea what to charge for this baby! If you have an opinion, please leave a comment for me.

Swaps Amid Boutique Mania

I've managed to finish a couple of swaps in between all the work I've been doing for the crafts boutique in a couple of weeks. I hadn't realized when I signed up for the boutique that a lot of work would have to go into non-salable items, such as business cards, tags, bags, booth planning, etc. Of course, I can't just do plain old business cards, mine have to be hand-embossed or collaged on the back, so I'm putting a lot of pressure on myself, as usual!

Anyway, here's my October postcard swap. The colors are orange and indigo. I received this image in a supplies swap, and she just looked like a witch in training to me. I made extras of these to sell at the boutique, too. I have no idea whether people will buy original art postcards, but I'm going to find out!

And here's a page in Red Dog's black, light blue, and silver True Colors journal. This is much simpler than my usual work, but when I thought of various things I could add to it, nothing seemed to work and I just kind of liked it the way it is.
