I've had a bag request of sorts. It's waiting on the requester sending me something in particular in the fabric department and until that arrives I can't get started. I will have to add some fabric to it and so asked a few questions about what the recipient likes. Colours/designs etc. It's hard making something specific for someone you've never met and may never meet, with little to go on. Especially knowing the item will be a special gift. On the one hand the lack of specific requests means it's quite liberating. Nobody is saying the bag has to be this style or have certain features. One of the things the person did say was that the recipients favourite colour was: ne na ne na blue. I said what you mean the kind of blue on flashing emergency vehicles? They said yes. And I immediately thought of Mirror Ball Dots. Only I didn't have any and had never seen any in person. I had to hope that they looked in real life how they look on my monitor. (Unlikely - I've had trouble photographing them!) I had to also hope that the kona I ordered to go with them and the sew-all thread matched or at least co-ordinated well.
