Over and out till next year!

I am working hard to finish all your custom orders this week. I am hopeful that I will be able to stop work on Thursday, and not return until Jan 3rd.
This has been an incredible year for me and I have all my wonderful customers to thank for that. So many of you come back time and time again, and I am so grateful.
You are so kind and complementary, and it is a pleasure to work with you on your dream bags, or perfect gifts for your family and friends.
On Christmas Day, I think of how many people are opening up presents that were custom made for them, by me. It's a great feeling!
Thanks to everyone and have a wonderful holiday.
See you in 2011!

Custom Santa Claus Honeysuckle Tote for Mrs. Santa, really

I was asked to take this panel of Santa and create a tote for a customer, who told me she was Mrs. Santa.

She wanted a zippered pocket on the back, but otherwise told me to make it my way! This is what I did

Tiina and her custom made purse, The Tootsie




Many thanks to Tiina for sending this great photograph, of herself and her Tootsie, with matching Slim zip bag. 
Last year she ordered a Morphin bag with a few flaps.  She waited until Christmas Day, before opening the package! What a strong woman! LOL!

Her kind comments this year

"Hi Karen,

Alexander Henry's Inked Tattooed Women Lynx Deluxe Messenger Bag

Inked, tattoed women Lynx Deluxe Messenger Bag

One of  my all time favorite fabrics. The colors and artwork are incredible. I made this bag, and it was claimed, by a newsletter subscriber instantly. I was set up to do a blog post, so I thought I'd share it anyway. I have plenty more of this print and would be happy to do a custom order for you. I plan on making other bags with it in the future, as well. As you can see, it's a larger scale print, but it works really well on the larger messengers and the Tallullah and Tootsie purses. It would also be great on a Tilly shoulder bag.  I think it would be very effective on the Boc, my padded case for an iPad .


Looking for a peace sign messenger bag? I have 3 new prints in stock!

Peace continues to be popular. I have these three new fabrics in stock, ready to become messenger bags, or perhaps laptop cases for you.

You can see all the prints, and peace sign products, in my shop, by clicking here!
