Fresh flowers delivered...

This is the latest bag I delivered yesterday to a client. I have made bags for her in the past...in fact she has been one of my best clients so far...this time, she said..."surprise me!"...oh no...what can I make...I have used this vase of flowers before, but not this big and not this way...so I thought she would like it...

She loves a black and white back ground...I chose this tiny damask...sorry the leaves got in the way...but my camera batteries ran out, so I have to show you this!



I love layering buttons...this silver one fit nicely inside the tan one...





and this heart shaped one looks perfect too on top of a plain white one...it's made of mother of pearl...








A peek at the inside...a key hook hangs down...more damask for the bottom and pockets...of course pockets all around! I liked this lining fabric too...a nice cheerful inside.

I am always a bit nervous when I deliver my bags...will the client like it...no need to worry...she liked this one better than the last one!! Yippee!! And she has friends who want to place orders...they just need to decide what color they want...

Designing and making bags makes me happy and what makes me even more giddy is when someone is so pleased with my work and proudly carries their new bag around...I will never make a ton of money selling these bags...it can never replace the income I lost when I was laid off , but it fulfills me in ways I never knew existed...and I hope I can do this for a very long time!

Enjoy your day, my friends...I hope your day is filled with sunshine and flowers!!

It is beautiful! I would be so nervous if someone said "surprise me"! I love all the detail you put on the inside of the bag. I'm sure she was really excited!

That looks like a designer bag, actually better than one. Beautiful.

Love the bag you made - Great job.
Thanks for stopping by. I am 99.99% of the time the only Merry Maid here also - just not in the budget. Have only used an individual a few times years ago. Took advantage of the groupon deal because of a back issue and so many in and out the next couple of months. Will have to see how that goes.
Enjoy your evening.
