So one of my custom order ladies wanted me to make a bag for her daughter. She litterally needed it sent within a few days so it would be home as a surprise when she got home from camp. She sent me the fabric and I pulled this lovely berry mottled cotton from my stash and started. I had the basic dimensions to work with from a sketch and she sent me an inspiration photo but basically she said to make the bag "hip" Smiley

So basically it needed to have two snap gusseted pockets on the front,


A zippered pocket above,

A water bottle pocket on the side,

zippered top,

adjustable strap


You can wear the bag long or short, I think it looks best long since it's a 6in depth bag.


This is the whole bag


Anywho, I just had to share. I am telling you guys, this bag went together in less than six hours. I didn't have to rip anything. That never happens to me. I hope that by reading this you will also get some good crafty karma Smiley

Thanks for reading C&C appreciated Smiley

Ooh, this is lovely! The fabric's very cute, the lining is a bold choice but works so, so well, and your design is amazing - I love big bags with all sorts of pockets and zippers and buckles! It looks so professional it might as well had been made in a factory by top-notch bag-making machines Grin And I can't stop staring at the front pockets (the perfectly straight stitches and the perfectly crisp folds inside are compelling!) and that water bottle pocket!

You didn't have to rip anything?! That's amazing! When sewing, I always end up stitching at least one piece inside out >.> I do hope I'll get good crafty karma by osmosis XD

Anyway, I have to second the question on rates for such a masterpiece. I think I shall stalk you.

It's fantastic!!  I'm sure her daughter is going to love it.  The best part is that no one else in school will have that bag!!

My, my!  You are a helluva talented young woman.  I'd expect this standard from someone involved in the study/business of sewing.  Superb job!

Nice bag! You did an awesome job - I love those front pockets. I wish I could do something that nice in 6 hours. I do agree that wearing it long looks best.
