I do a lot of custom orders for my sewing shop. It is a lot of fun to see what a customer chooses for colors or design.
Collection of custom bags
Laying out fabrics and choice of zippers as a design board for custom order
I have tweaked my designs at times because of what a customer would like. One of my customers wanted hidden straps in her tote. After fooling with the design and changes in making the tote, I ended up loving the look of the hidden straps. It is now my current design with totes & diaper bags. The straps are still sewn in from the bottom seam, all the way up the bag, but now you can’t see it.

Quite often I don’t have the right colors of zippers or fabric on hand. That’s no problem. It is really easy to order what ever is needed. Today a box with zippers and thread for several customers arrived.
Order of zippers and threads for custom orders
It is always exciting to open up the box and see all the goodies! Time to get started
Here’s a sneak peek at what is on my sewing table today:
Black lace over satin wristlets
Two styles of smartphone wristlets in progress. I layer black lace over black satin over a black cotton foundation. The three layers create a sturdy but beautiful purse. These wristlets will be finished and listed this week.
This beautiful faux suede camel phone wristlet is also ready to be listed.
