I have fallen in love all over again with my Imago. I have always loved its looks...great design in plum and olive makes a very attractive bag. Before the arrival of my Swift, it nicely served as my knitting bag. For the last couple weeks it has patiently awaited its next assignment. Yesterday it became my portable "office" and transitioned perfectly.
I use my Field Journal Notebook (also plum...) for my CASA note keeping. My responsibilities include reviewing medical records, mental health reports, and school files. I often need hard copies which are usually on standard 8 1/2 x 11 paper. These only fit in the FJN when folded so I was on a quest to find a way of accommodating them. Yesterday I made a school visit where I needed to review records and spend time talking with a child. The challenge...professional and kid friendly! Solution...Field Journal inside my Imago. I tucked a vinyl file folder in the back outside pocket containing my Court order (easily accessible to hand to the office staff and space for additional papers). There was also plenty of room inside the bag for a few kid friendly items...a sketch pad, colored pencils, small car, a counting game, and a couple of finger puppets. In true TB style, the bag was less than 1/2 full and there were still unused pockets. Only one bag to keep track of and I know whatever else I might need to add next time will also fit.
What a versatile bag!!! Thank you Tom Bihn for making my life easier. :-)
