Spring Floral and Teal Bucket Bag

This little cutie is made from that wonderful home decor canvas floral fabric that I love.  It is lined in a gold striped fabric and has a floral interior bottom.  It features a rounded shape, two front pockets (great for cell phone) with piping detail, a single strap, magnetic closure and silver hardware.  It measures approx. 14" at its widest point, 10" from top of purse to bottom, and 13-1/2" handle drop.

Denim Dot Sling Bag - my most requested style of bag!  
This bag was adopted out at our farmer's market.

This sling bag is created from a  sewing pattern by Deidre Wicks.  I have made several of these in different fabrics and hardware.  It is just a great everyday bag.  This one features denim dot material and red and white striped fabric for the lining, four internal pockets, silver hardware, and an upcycled keychain bauble.  This bag measures approx. 15" at the widest point, 13" front the top of the purse to the bottom when the purse is opened, the top folds over to a measurement of 11" front top to bottom, the strap drop is approx. 14" when closed.  

Teal and Floral Spring Bag - 
This lovely bag went home to 
Ecuador with Kenzie's mom-in-law

This bag is an original DBD design and it is one of my all time favorite bags!  This fabric is just so yummy!  Features home decor weight canvas in a floral and a teal.  Pleated, lined in a gold fabric with dragonflies, interior double pocket, internal key fob, magnetic closure, silver hardware.  This bag measures approx. 18" at its widest point, 17" front top center of the purse to the bottom of the purse, and a 12" drop from the top of the handle to the center of the purse.  I carry a version of this purse and I love it.  It holds a ton but doesn't feel bulky because of it's length.  

Chocolate Swirl Bag

This lightweight, but sturdy tote is the perfect bag if you want to get some attention!  It measures 22" at it's widest point, 14" front the top center point to the bottom of the bag, and there is approximately a 13" drop from the handle down to the top of the purse.  It features a unique lightweight, comfortable, tubular handle that is riveted for strength.  Silver hardware, magnetic closure. It is easy and fun to carry.  Makes a great carry on bag for traveling or overnight bag for sleepovers or an everyday bag for those who have lots of goodies to carry!

My new work bag.  Made from a beautiful home decor fabric using my "Colorado Sky" bag pattern.  Very durable, holds lots of goodies and cute at the same time!  Lined in a creamy tone on tone stripe.  The true colors are in the first photo-gold, taupe, cream, red.  
Housewarming gifts for my mom and sister....a quilted market bag for mom made out of some leftover curtain fabric from her Michigan home.  Chickens, of course, the theme.  A nightlight, potholder, and kitchen towel set for Kim in some pretty pastel colors.
Now here's a unique purse!  This was a special order for a wonderful lady in Indiana.  She adores Elvis and this purse was created for her as a gift from a loved one.  I was so totally GEEKED to find a button that resembles a guitar pick!  I paired it with some classy black canvas and some sparkle for fun on the inside.  
Some back to school fun...a special order for two special girls. Messenger Bag style with front flap, inside pocket and outer pocket in back with fabric that matches the front flap.  One adjustable strap.  The pink one closes with velcro and the ladybug/denim one closes with a silver clip.  Yes....those are glitter skulls!
Marcy's Birthday Bag - this is a messenger style bag I designed for Marcy.  Top quilted flap paired with black canvas, long adjustable strap, clip front closure, back pocket, inside pockets.  I only had a few small pieces of the yellow floral and it's just so yummy!

A brand new original DBD creation....The "Colorado Sky - Robin Egg Blue" handbag!!  I designed this bag for Kim to take on her travels based on a JJill butter leather bag.  I couldn't quite swing the butter leather part so here's what I did:  Canvas bag; lots of room; pockets inside and out; two strap options; recycled brushed silver hardware; machine washable.  Quite possibly bag perfection!  :) Update:  Kim is still carrying her bag and it has held up great.  I made myself a work bag using this pattern and it holds a ton of stuff!
