Wanted to let you know that I have started a group on ravelry and 2 people have already joined (I just created it about an hour ago). Ravelry, for anyone who is not familiar with it, is a big message board type site for crafters.
In talking to some of those folks, I am wonderiing if we might be able to incorporate more homemade stuff into some of these bags too. As an example, maybe we could a "Cold weather in the desert" bag which would include a pair of socks, among other sundries.
Also, maybe homemade soap? Hand-made jewelry?
Although Chriss and I worked on these themed bags, I think I can safely say these are ideas open to creativity and flexibility. If you have ideas, please share them! :)
