Custom order...

Our very first custom order bag, delivered to it's happy owner! We'll see what happens. She contacted us and asked for a bag that had certain amenities....we designed it and priced it and she bought it! so now....we're going to take orders for custom bags if anyone else wants one. I have posted this on FB and we'll see...so here's the story of the bag:

This is us digging through our stash looking for inspiration. Other than "i like yellow" and specific functional details, she gave us nothing to go one. She told us to do "whatever"! Fortunately for her...we do know her and have been witness to her personal taste and style for several ...many?...years so we had a feeling of what she would like.

Poor Melissa had to do almost all of the math! I am just not very good. We had some ideas that didn't work out...and we had to make changes along the way. We learned a lot....
During the process, we laid out the bag to see how amazing the trim was around the outside. We found this GREAT ribbon that was half yellow and half orange with blue dots and all of them were the perfect color! we added some brown ribbon too! voila!

She wanted a zipper pocket for cash...I am so proud that I could do a zipper! this is in the back of the flap...so once it is flipped...you can get your cash!

Detail of the ribbon trim on the exterior pockets!

This is inside the back pocket....here is the business card pocket and the back pocket has a magnetic closure...


Inside is one large pocket. She has a large calender that she wanted a pocket for...



She wanted a cell phone pocket and a pencil pocket....cute, right?


we're almost done...you can see the side and back view here...


And here is the finished bag!

wow....we love it! we are glad that it is finished!
