Julie's Cinch Sack ~ A Custom Bag

It's no secret that I have a thing for bags. I love everything about bags. I have a bag for every project, every occasion, every event. I love to design bags. I love to make bags. Even if they are not for me, I still love them!

Here's one that I made for Julie as a custom order from my Etsy shop. She requested a custom bag with no quilting, open pockets, a zipper pocket, a key hook, and only about 14 inches long. She told me what she liked in prints and colors. I sent her some links to fabric lines I thought might match her vision. She picked the main fabric and asked me to pick the others and use them as I saw fit. Then she wanted to be surprised when it arrived in the mail so I didn't even post any pictures on the Etsy listing when she made the actual purchase! Talk about blind faith! It was a fun project and I was pleased with the outcome. Apparently Julie was too, as I received a very nice email from her today saying how much she loved it. Take a look...

Julie's Cinch Sack ~ A Custom BagThis is the outside fabric that Julie wanted as the main fabric. It's called Rectangles in Yellow Steel from Malka Dubrawsky's A Stitch In Color fabric line for Moda. I bought my fabric from Stitches 'n Giggles online shop where Lori always provides such great service and great prices too! If you shop there, tell her I sent you. I don't get anything for referrals, but I do like shops to know when they have a happy customer!

Ok, back to the bag...

Julie's Cinch Sack ~ A Custom BagJulie had mentioned that she liked the fabric called Sand Dollar in Acid Green, but I could only get a small cut of that fabric, so I made it into a little surprise as the zipper pocket lining!

This bag was fun to create for Julie and I hope she gets a lot of use out of it!

Yesterday I made another kind of bag which I will share with you next, along with a tutorial so you can make one too if you like. Look for it over the weekend or early next week as these next few days will be filled with end-of-school activities and wrapping up from the school year. Whew! That year went by fast!

Happy Stitching!
