I have agonised over the name of my bags for a long time now. What do I call them? How many letters should be in the name? Generally five is the best right? What to do???
My first idea was to combine my kids' names - Rhiana and Liam - Liana, Rhiam? They didn't work well... didn't roll off the tongue quite so well. I couldn't think of any good words that would work.
I have a secret, well not so secret, addiction to Pride and Prejudice. I have read the book many times and love the BBC adaptation to be in the background when I am sewing or cooking (especially long stints in the kitchen). So I thought I would use one of the character's names as my bag names - Darcy would do because it is five letters long. I liked it but there are many, and I mean many, crafters who use the name darcy.
My brother suggested stash... although it made people think of drug stash it made me think of my massive fabric stash. But unfortunately, stash bags and stash designs already exists. So I quickly decided on dash, a compromise between darcy and stash. It is only four letters long so I don't know if it will last. What do you think?
Speaking of markets, I will be at the Gilles Street Markets on Sunday November 7th from 10-4 with my bags and accessories. If you are in Adelaide, South Australia I hope to see you there.
