Gifts for Bird Lovers

I spend a lot of time looking for fabrics to reflect my customers interests. Since many of my customers also look for gifts for family and friends, I am constantly on the lookout for any fabrics that might be used to make the perfect gift for someone with a specific interest, such as pigs, roller derby, books, and the vast array of hobbies and collectibles available.

Being a bird watcher myself I always check out the prints featuring our feathered friends. Here's an assortment of bags that would be great gifts for those who carry a pair of binoculars where ever they go!

Check in my shop under the category "things with wings" to see what's ready made.
Take a look in my fabric album for the category "birds" to see the prints that might be perfect for that custom made bag.

Large purses, with witches and skeletons, for Halloween and year round!

With Halloween a few weeks away I thought I should share some bags I have in stock that would be perfect for this time of year. Many of my customers use the "spooky" bags all year long, so I always have some ready made for them!

These two bags are my Britta style. This is very popular with my customers who need to carry a lot of stuff with them. Great for traveling too. An adjustable shoulder strap, Zoe Pocket set, key clip, and a zippered closure are the main features.

Flat bottom bag for holding Mah Jongg tiles and other tile game pieces such as Rummikub and Scrabble

This is a large Zini, a super sized version of my Zini flat bottom bag.  I added a zippered pocket to the inside because it's not only good for game tile pieces, but for cosmetics, toiletries and crafts, to name a few other uses.
Please feel free to contact me to request a custom order in a fabric of your choice if you don't see one that suits your taste.
See the fabrics here. In order to make my bags special I buy small quantities of most of my fabrics, so you might want to pick a few you love and then let's talk about your custom order.

Zippered pouch for card game decks like Munchkins and Cards Against Humanity

Here's another zippered pouch I have added to my line, called The Carder.  It's sized to hold decks of cards for card games like Munchkin and Cards Against Humanity, but I am sure you will find many uses for it. It can hold up to 200 cards sized about the same as a standard playing card.
As always, you are welcome to contact me to place a custom order if you would like one in another fabric.

Mah Jongg Card and Coin Purse, owls, cats, flowers and frogs abound!

I can tell Mah Jongg is become more popular based on my sales of Mah Jongg related bags!

I designed this zippered pouch, called the Slide, to hold the standard, or large Mah Jongg card.  Inside is a zippered pocket to keep your coins while playing Mah Jongg.

Why settle for boring fabrics for this type of bag? I have these Mah Jongg pouches in a variety of great prints, plus, if you don't see one you like I can custom make one just for you. Get one that will make the other players envious of your style and good taste!

As is often the case with my bags, the Slide could have many other uses, let your needs be the guide.
