Project Update: Quail & Chickadee samples are here! also - waist bag straps?

Hey Everyone,

Chickadee & Quail samples have arrived! They look and feel great, I'm really happy with how these two turned out. If the images sway you one way or the other, you are still able to make changes to your survey and add-ons until the end of July when I will lock orders.
Quail & Chickadee Join the Flock

I took a bunch of photos, so if you want to see more of these two bags you can check them out here -

Also, I'd like to offer fanny pack/waist bag straps to go with your bags if you're interested! They are adjustable from about 38 to 61 inches including the connecting clip hardware and the bag.  They are 1.5 inches wide and made of a sturdy nylon material - kind of feel like a softer version of a seatbelt. So, now you can edit your survey add-ons to add these straps for $6 each if you'd like them!
I'll get a photo of myself wearing one soon...

Speaking of Surveys...
Thank you to the 90% of backers who have completed the survey! If you're one of the 200+ people who have not yet completed the survey, please make sure that you do that by the end of the month when I will be locking surveys to get final item counts. If you DID NOT receive an email with your survey, make sure to check your spam folder. You can also access the survey via this link and your email address:

Charging Cards
Your cards have already been charged for your pledge amount, but will be charged for shipping and any add-ons you've chosen on August 1st. There will be an email notification 2 days prior to cards charging in case you need to update any information/payment methods.

Pin Manufacturing
Pins are well underway and many are already completed! They should get to me in about 2 weeks. Any orders that contain ONLY pins, stickers, and keychains (nothing coming from the bag manufacturer) should be ready to ship out by the end of August!

Bag Manufacturing
All bags except for the Quail & Chickadee (which I needed to check samples for first) are paid for and scheduled for manufacturing. I will order the last 2 designs in about a week. I've asked my manufacturer to send me progress photos so that I can keep you all updated. Will be sharing those as we wait 2-4 months for things to be completed and shipped to me. I've staggered ordering so I can handle the amounts (and, honestly, to hedge my bets with cargo shipping). You can check on the main page under the top "Current Status" section to see what was ordered when and all my status nonsense.

So, things are chugging along :)
Talk to ya later!
