|What is it?|
Visitors to Blog and the Chilly Hollow Stitch Guides blog have realized I work closely with Leigh Designs on models and stitch guides. It's a fun relationship for the both of us but sometimes I do other things, like test drive a new product. Last summer Leigh sent me this to see how I liked it and how well it held up. It's Bag Bling, made in the U.S.A. and now distributed by Leigh Designs. It is a thirteen inch long string of beads with a lobster claw clasp at one end and a splint ring and another lobster claw at the other. Just above the big fancy bead at the split ring/lobster claw end is a small split ring. You can clip the top lobster claw end to this little ring to make a choker style necklace or to keep it securely on your purse or stitching tote.

You can see more Bag Bling on the LD website. Clicking on any of the photos will show you a closeup of the color schemes available.
I use mine to attach my keys to my purse but if I ever go anywhere I'll probably put it on the stitching tote I take with me to keep my scissors handy but secure. Once I get where I'm going, I'll remove it from the bag and use it as a scissors fob so I can keep up with my traveling scissors easily in a hotel room or beach or wherever. On the Leigh website you'll see it used to attach one of the bigger Ashland Sky bags to one of the smaller. There are a lot of ways you can use this. My wrist is small enough I could use mine as a bracelet if I doubled it.
I'd recommend this, particularly if you travel, as a great way of keeping your scissors or keys attached to something larger. Besides, they are just durn pretty and you know we stitchers are all about the eye candy! Where do you get Bag Bling? Your favorite shop can order from Leigh Designs if they didn't pick up any at Market.
