Every new bag I make...

Is my new favorite.

Small Totes. $18-$24|
Inner 'cell phone' pocket included.

I made these two totes for pre-school teacher gifts, I fell in love with them, and had a hard time parting with them. No matter what I call them, everyone takes one look at them and exclaims, "Oh scripture bags!". I guess it's official. They ARE scripture bags. (For what it's worth: I think they are the perfect little girly bag for an outing to the cinema with your hubby.)

I have more of all of these fabrics, just contact me or leave a comment for a custom order! Also my shop blog is under construction but I have a lot more fabric combos there!

Apricot A Lot!

(It is a joint blog with my sisters..ah, how sweet).


And I made these two little hotties for each of my older girl's teachers. (But I ended up selling one before I could take it to the teacher!) I took her a different one that I had already made (shh. don't tell.)



And oh my heck(!) I am SO in love with these large totes.
Stripes are my new love. The weird/funny thing is that the blue flowery fabric is kind of grandma ho-hum until it is placed next to and under the stripes, then it pops! (I have similar stripe/flower combos in red and yellow fabrics). Large totes have a lined inner zipper pocket plus a 'cell phone pocket'. This one is $31 and measures 15" by 18".

This little black beauty is still in the design process. My neighbor designed it, and I'm making it. Love the Paisley's! And once again, my new favorite! You should see the polka dots and stripes I have in black... This bag is also $31. It is 15" by 18".



I make these little cuties for birthday presents, and add a matching headband.
Can you tell my girls would really like one of their own? But their birthdays are soooo far away!
$15 and include a matching striped headband.




And please say hello to my new Medium Tote. It's happy to meet you. This particular little number is $25. (It really wants to go home with you.) It measures 12" x 15", is fully lined and has an inner 'cell phone pocket'. (Zippered inner pocket avaliable for $3.50 extra). And I'm working on adding a key fob...

And last but certainly not least...
Presenting my new favorite, favorite.
I call it the Mod Bag, (design and fabric from JCarolineCreative.com).
It also has a lined zipper pocket, a magnetic snap closure and a cell phone pocket. ( $35 and the fabric is designed by Jessica Jones and only sold in one online store--Very Cool.)



And for the future can you tell what this will grow up to be? I am working on a diaper bag! I'm still in the design (doodles on scratch paper is more like it) phase. It will be the size of the large totes, but have more of a messenger bag look. It's kind of intense and I'll have to charge more, so I'm slightly worried whether I can sell any of them?? But TONS of pockets. Would you pay $45 for the coolest diaper bag out of this fabric...?

Wow, you are very talented! If it were not for my "I am not buying anything uneccesary" month I would totally visit your etsy shop.

Melissa said...

Happy to meet you, mod bag ;) I would totally buy a diaper bag in the mod fabric - I'm sick to death of my matronly looking diaper-bag, which I now have to carry everywhere!

Nordstrom's has fabulous (& madly expensive) diaper bags - for the chic & sassy mom, to which I aspire to be :) Check them out for inspiration, maybe - they're handy dandy, but a little different (& better) than the Babies'R'Us offerings...


I second Jacki - you ARE totally talented!

I particularly like the black & white paisley.

I can't wait to see everything in the new "store". I still want to buy a large tote.

Good & Crazy said...

wow! Thanks for all the feedback! A marketing note...I still have all the fabrics you see in this post, plus a ton of other great ones. Including a great black with white, apple green and pink dots--really current and fun!

I stumbled upon your blog from An Island Life and I just wanted to tell you that I absolutely love the black paisley bag... SO CUTE!

SP said...

I didn't have to rummage very far to find the scripture? (shrug, whatever) bags and it's official, I'm in love. That blue and yellow one is the cutest ever!

Sarah Mae said...

I WANT ONE!!! I will win your contest because I'm sprinkling fairy dust on your hand that will make you choose me...

(No worries, I don't really believe in fairies...well, not magic ones that is...)

Do you have an etsy store? I can't find the link....also, do you do anything in shabby chic pinks? Very lovely bags

Linda said...

Love, love, love the blue flowered with the stripes large tote. Wow - you're so talented!

Amz said...

Okay...I am in love! I would love to buy one of your bags...do I get to pick the fabric? Or Do you have ones made up? I really like the paisley one and the fabric you used for the one that included the headband. I need a bigger one. One to fit my huge Sunday binder in. Let's talk soon...


Oh my heck! I was featured. And it didn't hurt or anything!
