Well folks, I didn't think I was going to get time to actually construct it today, but I did. Woohoo!

I've uploaded pictures for all those who wanted to see them to http://shadohart.googlepages.com/home

OH, and I know I said it would be upholstery fabric, but this was in the only bag of fabric I have left to my name and it was soooooo shiny! I just had to make shiny pockets on the first one. LOL

Way to go, draygonflies! Get your price list and ordering info up there and I'll bet you have more business than you can handle! I'd like to see a vinyl/waterproof backing so if I open it up on a wet table I don't have to worry.

Thanks for doing this for us,

Very cool! I'd like it even more with one of the stamp pockets a bit larger....for those of us who have big signature stamps. Or for maintenance stuff. Many of us prolific planters like to have extra baggies and wipes with us....

And instead of tieing closed...which takes time and nimble fingers...how about a quick and easy velcro closure? Then even a kid could clean up....

Genius! I Love it! I also like the weatherproof backing idea.
When you're ready for orders, sign me up for one! And I'll probably want the other carriers that come out as well. :)

Quote vinyl/waterproof backing


I found a spary that claims to make any fabric water resistant. I've treated the fabrics that I'm using, but full scale testing is going on today. i.e. submersion, laying in a puddle, etc. I want to see how long it holds up before water seeps into the fibers. Simply adding a layer of clear vinyl over the back wouldn't be a problem, if that's what you prefer.

Thanks,
Tee

I have another option for a waterproof exterior, oilcloth. This fabric is fused to vinyl already, but I've never bothered with it because it's usually so ugly. However, I just found a supplier with solid colors. Let me do some research. I'll add a color choice page to the site and you can see pictures of what's available.

I'll also have some carriers that I've picked fabrics for and are ready for shipping soon.

Thanks for all the interest and ideas!

I'm thinking a little taller space at the top with no area for supplies and I like the waterproof backing...Sometimes I need something to sit on (soaked my pants today)

Velcro is actually a requirement for the waterproof versions, but I'll make it an option for all of them.

I have the space above the markers that I was thinking of putting another pocket. Didn't know what to put in the pocket though... so a large pocket with no dividers it is.

LOL I named the page (not this one, the commercial one) so that Bob's sticks would fit in just perfectly! heh... "Stampin' in the Sticks" He just needs to get a few ready to go and we'll post them.
