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.
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.
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:
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.
If you’ve peeked into my shop, you will have notice that I have been adding new wristlets and clutches that will fit the iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus all week. I am working on more, and listing new wristlets and clutches daily.
iPhone 6 wristlets: will fit the iPhone 6 as well as any phone up to 5.75 inches in length
iPhone 6 Plus clutches and zipper wristlets that will fit the iPhone 6 plus as all phones up to 6.75 inches in length
Here is a sample of what is available right now:
The Night owls and Vintage Campers are being listed today. More to come all week!
Last week Apple released information on their newest phones. Now we have the dimensions of each of the two newest phones – iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone 6 is a little longer than the iPhone 5 and the 6Plus is a quite a bit bigger.
Currently, I do have some zipper wristlets and clutches that will fit each of the phones on my shop. However I am tweaking my best selling wristlet to fit the longer iPhone 6. I have a whole stack cut and ready for sewing.
I will be posting them in my shop by the end of this week. If there is a fabric that you would like, leave me an email or comment, and I will add it to my stack.
My thought on the larger iPhone 6 Plus is that it would be better protected in the zipper wristlets or in the extra padded clutches. This pretty butterfly and roses clutch is the newest of my padded clutches that are perfect for the iPhone 6 or any of the larger smartphones, phablets, or tablet phones.
This is clutch is up on my shop. Watch for more to be listed all week. 🙂
