Dating back to 1860, this Sailor bag or "Ditty bag" was given to new recruits to hold basic sundries like a sewing kit, toiletries, tools and personal effects such as writing paper, pens and some clothing.
This unisex bag is great for travel, beach, camping, and day to day use. Wear on the shoulder, cross body or as a backpack. Front knot adjusts strap length. Leather stop cinches top shut. Brass zip outer pocket and all brass hardware. Made with heavy duty wax-infused canvas for water repellency and lined with heavy cotton ticking.

Just a half hour east of Portland you can find yourself in the Columbia River Gorge - an 80 mile stretch of canyon that divides Oregon and Washington with a myriad of hikes and views of Mt Hood, Mt Adams and Mt St. Helens (and of course the beautiful Columbia River.) Been trying to bust out of town on these sunny spring days and go hiking. This was a 6 mile hike a friend and I did about an hour outside of Portland on the WA side of the river called Labyrinth Loop Hike - a trail full of wild flowers, giant basalt rock formations, waterfalls, a magical oak grove. The hike ends with a spectacular view of Coyote Wall cliff! NW livin' is the best.

A nice dude named Jim stopped by the studio to check out our Field Bags. He was hoping they would fit his small computer and 8.5x11 file folder, but alas, they did not. I decided to pattern out a larger version for him and add it to the line. I'm quite happy with the way it turned out! Find them for purchase HERE
"Fun A Day" Challenge: Make one thing every day. I am making postcards on the back of these 3x5" chipboard bingo cards that I've had lying around forever. I am also meditating for 15 minutes first thing in the morning everyday. It hasn't seemed to help with my anxiety issues yet... keep on keepin' on... we'll see.
