Custom Orders

I was asked by a friend to do two custom bags for her and her daughter.  She gave me an army bag and mail bag to create a messenger bag and her father’s military bag.  I planned it out and when the design came to mind I went for it.  I created a super cute messenger bag with a big front pocket, utilizing the print from the mail bag.  I used the adjustable strap from the army bag and some leather of my own.  I took the pockets from the army bag and sewed them inside for a cell phone, make up, whatever.  It’s utilitarian, feminine and chic.  

For the military bag, I was really nervous to do anything to it.  I am a very sentimental person and was scared to make the first cut.  I reinforced the bottom with leather and added a strap and a little peace dove wooden zipper pull.  I thought it was perfect.
