I have literally worked like a crazy person this weekend! I finished a bunch of orders including this custom diaper/camera bag I made for my girl over at The Paper Mama. You might be wondering where the straps are... well she asked if I would add these D rings so she could use her straps from this bag. Pretty fantastic idea huh? Yep, those are seat belts. In case you couldn't tell, I'm pretty tickled with how this turned out:

I love the fabric- upholstery weight, organic cotton by Mod Green Pod, it's pricey but super worth it. 

The lining is by Anna Maria Horner- it's pretty fly too.

D-rings for the straps

I love pleats.. I really can't get enough of them :)

Fully padded side pockets offer protection for a camera/lens and the 2" foam bottom can't hurt either.

I also just listed some new bags on Etsy today! I'm hoping I can keep this up and finally have decent inventory for the holiday shopping rush. I kinda feel like I'm slacking on the blog front- AGAIN... but I do have a few tutorials all ready to go and one exciting DYI project. I think this will be a busy week :)

What do you think?
I'm really into wool this year- it's so classy. Also note the yummy vintage brooch!

Everyone loves a good tote... especially in this rad ass fabric from Robert Kaufman

I'm also loving this woven strapping by Echino..

There is ALWAYS room for a ruffle.

In other news- I burned the hell out of my arm today.... guess that's what I get for doubling my ironing board as a work table. One day I'll have a big girl work room (sigh) :)
