A client spotted this fabric on her first visit to the shop two weeks ago. A few days later she requested that I reserved the fabric for her. She wanted me to custom made a tote for her.
And here it is, a rather simple tote with gusset and external binding. Fully machine quilted. The toughest part is to finish the binding by hand!
A very Japanese looking bag.
Another client who saw the WIP also bought half a meter of this fabric. She too wanted to make a bag with the fabric but using a different design.
And guess what, the last half a meter of the fabric is also taken, gone! A friend came and saw us putting the final touch on the tote. She stayed on and learned a simple reversible bag. It was done in about 3 hours.
There it goes, a happy me and three happy clients.
