My latest creation....

It's been grey and gloomy here in the mornings lately, which to tell the truth has been a good thing. It gives me more time to do things inside, because when it's too nice outside, I want to be out there. Here is the latest bag I have finished. It is a custom order and I had a lot of fun with it.
She requested an all black body and magenta lining, but said I could use my imagination on the rest. She is a girly, girl and I thought this pretty flowered fabric I found at the nearby quilt store would look nice. After I quilted the bag, I made belt loops and then made the flowered print into a sash, and I thought it came out pretty cute. I added polka dots for a handle, because polka dots are just plain fun! They also made up the inside pockets.


I quilted the inside too. I always do. It just makes the bag more durable. There's a swivel key hook in there as well as tons of pockets, too. A girl can't have enough pockets in her bag. Now that I've completed all my special orders, maybe I can add some new things to my Etsy shop, Lord knows it needs it. It's in pathetic shape! Actually, I do have another bag almost complete to put in there. Maybe today I will finish it!

Oh my goodness - that is beautiful! I love it!

With a bit of padding it would make a terrific camera bag for hauling all the regular essentials of a mama-razzi photographer! :)

Heading over to take a peek at your other treats on Etsy! :)
