    Travel Cubelet vs the Seattle rain: the interior of my Travel Cubelet stayed as dry as my LL Bean boots even in some vigorous rain and wind. My pants were less fortunate!

      Burnt orange medium cafe bag goes to Liverpool to enjoy some street art. Spent the day exploring the city's art galleries both indoor and outdoor with a photographer friend.

          I normally use the small Nite Ize S-biners to clip zippers together on my bags to slow down potential pick pockets... They are obviously useful for clipping all sorts of things...

          This is a fun use for them...when you want the verticality of the Travel Cubelet with a bit more space, add a Cubelet (plus it's fun to play with the colours). It works best if you fill the TC first and/or with heavier items, so it hangs correctly.

            I like my Shop Bags so much that I'm really disappointed when I buy something and realize I don't have one. Today I ended up with a lot more groceries than I expected, and somehow they all magically fit into the one small Shop Bag I had brought with me. I find that that it is easy to carry even when stuffed full, while a plastic bag would have thin straps that cut into my hand, and a paper bag would usually rip under the weight. I suppose it shouldn't really matter for the short walk from the store to my car, but those Poron handles are really comfy.

            I've become so evangelical about these bags that I just bought one in Island for my mom. Waiting to see what she thinks of it...

              The first time I used my new island shop bag the other day it got a compliment from the cashier.
              I gave my mom a wasabi shop bag and she loves it!

                Loved that snap...aside from the functionality, the colors of what’s inside look great with the purple!

                  I just got the small shop bag, and was so pleased to find a use for it almost immediately. At my gym, there is a corner of the counter where people leave things to share- a book they are done with, samples of products/food, etc. Today someone had left a bag of juicing oranges. I consider fresh-squeezed orange juice one of life's little luxuries, and am battling a cold, so I whipped out my shop bag and packed them up for home!

                    There is a lot of hubbub today surrounding the Pop Tote. (Goblin looks on as Peep investigates)

                        Getting my second A45 ready for travel. They're not "my" bags until I've added a handwoven inkle ribbon to them. Hubby always knows which bags are ours this way.

                        Coyote!!! All my other bags are aubergine, except for the D36 (road duffle) which is aubergine with coyote trim. Since I knew I needed a bag of a different color so we could quickly tell which is his and which is mine, I went with coyote. I'm not sure which one will be his and which one mine, though.

                        I think it's gorgeous. It's like woven gold. I wish it had a more exciting interior color, like purple. Grey is kind of blah, but I'll spice it up with packing cubes.

                          Your weaving is gorgeous!

                          The Coyote should be yours on this first trip of course :)

                          I personally really love greys, especially paired with blues, but I get that it can sometimes feel dull... pls post pics with all your bright cube choices once you pack it

                            I second the admiration for the beautiful weaving! Could you tell us more about it, BWeaves?

                            Comment


                              The inkle is 5/2 cotton, woven in warp faced plain weave. The colors alternate between solid colors and then 1 end one color alternating with 1 end of the second color. Then solid second color. Then 1 end second color alternating with 1 end of the third color. Then solid third color. Lather, rinse, repeat. That's what givens the interlocking zig zag pattern. Cotton from Lunatic Fringe Yarns. They dye amazing colors.

                              Here's my other A45.

                              Same colors, but woven in a different order.

                                My LCB has been incredibly useful this week for work and as a diaper bag.
