Mermaids Tallullah Purse

The second Tallullah that's been in the works for a while. I love this print. So vibrant! This is a one of a kind bag, only one will be made. The turquoise straps pop, especially against the black on the back. One of the best mermaid prints I've seen.


Cranes and Stream Tallullah

Finally I am able to work on some new creations. This Tallullah has been in motion for quite some time. It's great to be able to get it finished. It's the last of this beautiful fabric, and the gimp trim is a perfect finishing touch. As is usually the case, it's much more beautiful than in the photograph!


Fabric Frenzy Shopping Sprees

Fabric Frenzy Shopping Sprees

If you've looked at the fabric selection you'll notice there are over 475 options. Seems like a lot right?

And yet, especially for those of you with Morphin Bags, it might be nice to have more.

I've come up with, what I hope is, a great solution to offering even more fabrics.

The Fabric Frenzy Shopping Sprees!

Here's the basic idea

1) Every so often, (to be determined) I announce, via e-mail, blog and shop, that a shopping spree is pending.

2) I have come up with two methods that will allow you to see if there is anything you want.

a) I pick one on line fabric shop, a different one each time to give us the ultimate in selection, and include the link for you to go and browse for a while.
b) I provide a variety of options in my gallery

3) If you see something you like, and a bag style you want to order, you let me know.

4) When everyone who is interested has made their selection, the fabric order is placed and your orders are finalized.

5) The fabric arrives and I get working on your new bags, flaps or what have yous!

It could be a lot of fun!!!

Oh, one more thing, consider this the blog notification of the first spree!
I'll have details shortly. Please let me know if you are interested.


Zoe's Bag Boutique has a store of its own!

Finally, after months of work, the shop is open!

Now I get to do the fun part, making brand new bags.

I hope you will find it much easier to learn about the styles, options and custom work.

There are some great features.

A gift registry / wish list so you can show loved ones exactly what you want.

A guest book so you can say hello

There's a link to let you see what is newly listed and what is featured.

And the Gallery I have written about on this blog.

You are invited to send photographs of you and/or your bags, for inclusion in the Gallery. Taken in your back yard, a local attraction or an exotic locale, we'd love to see you, or if you are shy, just your bag.
Taking a trip? Send pics of you and your bag in front of the Taj Mahal, the Great Wall of China or the Empire State Building. Creativity encouraged!

There is also a section for pics of your pets. Send them along we all love to see them!


Christmas orders revealed

In the months leading up to Christmas I make many bags that I'd like to share but don't want to risk spoiling Christmas.

Here's a great order I did, some for gifts, some for the purchaser!

A Zelda Deluxe with an extra zippered pocket on the back and two flaps, A Zeldina with two flaps, two custom designed Gamer Deluxes and a cool little wallet.

It was a wonderful order, so colorful!


A Custom Order Falcon Messenger Bag in Echino Birds

I worked with the customer on this incredible bag. We both loved the spider web on the end pocket! It was a gift she got to select for herself. After we nailed down the details she decided to forgo seeing it, including pictures, until Christmas Day. Such discipline!!!!

How did she like it?

"KAREN!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so excited to open it today but waited for awhile in the gift giving process. Then - there it was - already wrapped - how thoughtful of you! - and just stunning. I LOVE the colors of the echino purple, I love how lightweight the bag is with such sturdy fabrics, and your construction is perfectly perfect. I am soooooooo happy with it! I have already transferred everything I want into it, and the outside pockets are great. I have everything I need a fingertip away. THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!

Now I will try to be calm for awhile, before I start perusing your wares again. For me? For gifts? Hmmmm - so many possibilities!

Merry Christmas. You made mine very happy :-)


Anime Geisha Tallullah with an adjustable shoulder strap

Part of a fantastic pre Christmas custom order, this bag was for the customer herself, not the giftees!
She was placing an order for numerous items, mostly gifts, but couldn't resist this print. Perfect for a Tallullah and she added an adjustable shoulder strap, rather than the two handles.

I had a tough time sending this one away!
