Special Requests

Phil is one of my re-occurring customers.  God Bless him, he has a condition that makes him tremble and he has a hard time with a few of life's situations.  I'm his "girl for the job."

This pouch was his latest request.  With denim fabric, at his request, an adaptation of the original design was created in the proper sizes for his needs.  

A)  the single holder for just the inhaler and, 

B) a holder for both his cell phone and the inhaler.  He has a flip phone which has a thicker bulk and the inhaler is longer than what can be contained by the case provided to him by the NRA.

Velcro secures the pouches closed and there are belt loops in the back; 1 for the single and 2 for the doubled carriers (as shown below).

AJ is a real estate agent and in her off time, at home, breeding Great Danes, she needs to wear her favorite casual clothes.  And these shorts she was not anywhere near wanting to part with yet and how could I say that face.  AAGGHH....honestly, the hours! of work to get these to look like something wearable!!!  If only there was some worthy photography to give this effort the proper mention...well, here's my pics.
Oh, and she and her husband also became the proud owners of this guy....from Tim's creations.  They saw his "doodle" in the wood piece and just had to have it.

lots and lots of hours....

     and hours,,,,

and stitches...

and piecing...and replacing voids

     with....much appreeiciated...



It was mostly an expectation (of AJ's) of "sorry, it's hardly worth the trouble"....but I don't play that way.....

they came to me as a seam and the part of a pocket and at least the zippers were in tact to get a sense of which side was front piece and what might be the back....

oh, to look at them now...

and if you could have seen her face when she got them ALL BACK, FIXED.
