Beautiful travel bags in Japanese fabrics

The Japanese fabrics are so beautiful. Here's a gorgeous selection of new Britta totes just finished. The Brittas are a popular style. They are my top of the line tote/purse, large, lined in sturdy packcloth, with a zipper closure, a key clip, adjustable shoulder strap, and the Zoe Pocket Set, they are perfect for travel, but also for daily use if you need to carry a lot of stuff!

Some happy customers and their bags

I am always pleased to get photographs from my customers!  I am happy to share these with you.

This pic shows the happy recipient of a custom made Sweet Pea, given to her by one of my regular customers.




These photographs, from Elizabeth, show her new Kipster, already hard at work.

A custom made messenger bag and its happy owner

Many thanks to Tiina for sending this awesome pic of herself and her new Zelda Deluxe messenger bag.
Why settle for a bag not quite right when you can get one custom made for you? I customized this bag for Tiina by adding a zippered pocket on the back per her request. She carries her bags on her left side so I oriented the open pocket and key clip so they would be right there by her left hand.

Feel free to contact me to custom order your dream bag

Super custom made mini messenger and adorable models




I worked closely with this customer to make a super customized bag. 
We started with a Morphin Falcon. I made it slightly taller and wider, then I added an extender flap so she could still use the standard Morphin Falcon flaps.


She needed a place for her umbrella, so I added a deep mesh pocket to one end. 


On the other end I made 2 small zippered pockets so she can have easy access to bus passes etc.





 She also added a small carry strap and a movable shoulder protector


Inside we upgraded to a heavy lining in silver gray, added another small zippered pocket and a set of poochy pockets



She was also kind enough to supply some adorable models to show off the bag once it arrived at her house!

Looking for unusual and quirky drawstring bags? How about these? Fairies, witches, foxes, woodland animals and Mexican wrestling masks

Long time fans of my bags know I am always on the lookout for unusual fabrics. Here's a sampling of some new fabrics used to make my Suebee drawstring bags. These bags are so useful. They might be perfect for carrying knitting and crochet projects, but they can be used for organizing the home, carrying cd's or golf balls and going out for the evening. My customers have given me this list of uses which continues to grow!
My eclectic fabric selection, and the reasonable price of the Suebee also make them perfect gifts.  Don't see one in stock that will suit Auntie Sissy, or the nice lady across the street?
Just contact me and I will do a custom made bag for you.  Custom made makes it extra special, and could result in a one of a kind gift. A one of a kind item, handcrafted in the USA, is  hard to find in these days of mass production

A happy customer, Jessica, with her Nevermore Falcon. She was doing a Dr. Who K-9 cosplay at a Sci-Fi convention. She said she was breaking her costume a bit because my bag was so impressive . So cool!

Japanese Messenger Bags, with laptop sleeve, for back to school

Some people need lots of room in their messenger bags. That usually means they need the Panther or Panther Deluxe.
Inside are pockets,a key clip, a water bottle sleeve and a sleeve for holding a laptop.
The Deluxe model has two pockets on the outside as well. Lots of places to help you stay organized!

The Japanese prints work so well on the larger sized bags don't they?

A Zoe bag on a Vegas vacation!

Colette was kind enough to send these two pictures of her new purse, plus she said some really nice words about the bag too :-)

Hello Karen,
I love my new purse!  My husband and I went to Las Vegas this last weekend and he took these photos of me at Caesar's Palace with my beautiful blue lotus fabric purse in the Tootsie.  Thank you for making such awesome creations with beautiful and interesting fabric prints.
Best regards,
Colette

Lots of customer pictures to share!

I am happy to share some pics sent by happy customers. :-)



I work on the campus of Arizona State University, and took some pics of my Kipster on campus. 2 are of the fountain area beside the Memorial Union, one is in the Computing Commons (that’s where the bank of computers is)

A Morphin Zeldina Deluxe, with a padded pocket for an iPad. Kim reports the bag matches her Harley bags perfectly!

Sofia sent this great pic of her new Kipster in action at the beach in Sweden




Karen,
We just opened Madeline's leopard pencil bag. Wow! It's perfect...exactly what we ordered. And the craftsmanship is amazing; you are really gifted.
I attached a pic of our bag.
Thanks again for making this custom order such an easy and fulfilling process.

Blessings,
Stephanie
