Sewing Custom Orders

Posted in Peeking Behind the Easel, Sewing, and Uncategorized

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 🙂
