Back in the saddle again with a retro bag and a couple of sales
After such a long break since I moved house in July I was expecting it to take a while before I started selling again. So I'm super pleased that I've sold one of my bags I mentioned in last weeks blog and taken a custom order which I'm currently working on.
I was amazed when, within an hour or so of listing in my Folksy shop I sold this lovely peacock themed bag. This one seemed really popular, so maybe I'll make a couple more with the fabric I have left.
I've also taken a custom order for one of my messenger bags. I haven't made one of these for a while, so I'm looking forward to doing a few of these at the same time.
The custom order is in chocolate brown faux suede, with this lovely quality embroidered fabric. I love it when I get custom orders that I'm really excited to make - and this is definitely one of those. I've wanted an excuse to use this fabric for a while.
I've finally finished my large retro shoulder bag, having, at long last, had a go at piped handles.
I'm a bit taken with the size and fabric on this one so I'm not sure whether to sell or keep!
Just time to check out what everyone else has been p to on Handmade Monday.
