Soooooo I got my bags!!! I took pics right away and will post later but of course my hubs is being lazy about uploading them for me.

I *almost* kinda wish I had either ordered the large Abby instead of the regular one since I'm a chronic overpacker and find that it holds just enough for a day trip for me. Or I wish I had ordered a regular Stevie and used it as a purse. I'm a fan of over-the-shoulder purses so it would have been great for me.

The Zooey is adorable too! I'm debating on ordering a Stevie for myself once she reopens since she also gave a $5 off gift certificate for the delay in her order. Woohoo!

OOH! I Love Teal Dream!! Out of all the 6, it's my fave (well, minus the original one, sadly ).

$5 definitely isn't much of an increase at all, especially considering all the features and customization you're getting.

Sorry ladies! At work all day, so I couldn't update!!

I talked to Katie, and there is FOR SURE enough of the Teal Dreams to do my bag, so that's the fabric I chose. It was a close decision between teal dreams and blue coriander, but I like the more understated tones of the Teal Dreams, so that was the deciding factor.

I hope it turns out nice, and I'll be sure to post pics when I get it

She is also making me a makeup bag, free of charge because of the mix-up/long wait. and she had enough fabric to make that in Zen Meadows

Teak Dreams is nice too. Can't wait to see your bag!

And that's super nice of her to offer to make a free make up bag.

Here it is!!!

I ordered a large abby in gothic widow as a diaper bag, and a diaper clutch with a little bit extra width and an added on pocket on the back for my change pad. Both arrived today! They're SO nice!!! I had Katie put 2 pockets on the outside of the bag, 3 along one of the inside 'walls' and on the other side, one big pocket and 5 wider pen pockets. I think in hind sight I should have asked Katie to make the clutch a little wider, I have to stuff the change pad in there pretty good, which is a little frustrating, but I'll make due.

The size is good for a diaper bag. It can carry all of my day to day stuff comfortably with extra room for those days I need more with me. It should handle things well when we welcome baby #2 into the world (hopefully soon!). I dont know that I would have been happy with the regular abby as a diaper bag, I think it would have been JUST enough space for day to day for me, no extra room.

But without further ado, here are the photos!



Inside (and yes, that is a 5DII with a 24-70 lens in there!!!) If you want a detailed list of what all is in there, let me know and I'll type it out.

And the diaper clutch

For those of you who have your bags, did they say anything between "received payment" and "shipped"?

There are no differences between the regular and the large, just size. As for add ons, they're all listed there in my post, except I forgot to mention that I got the adjustable one strap instead of the two non adjustable ones. I love it though, fits everything I need very easily!

Melinda - do you think the large Abby would be big enough for an overnight bag for yourself? Not necessarily for baby stuff but for one or two nights away?

Thank you!



Yep! I think it would do nicely for a night or two away Probably not if you're packing 2 or 3 pairs of shoes or anything, but for clothes, toiletries and makeup it would probably do well!

WHHHHEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! She came!!!!!! And I'm in love! It was so totally worth the wait!

Details: Large Stevie in Teal Dreams. 3 pockets outside, 3 pockets inside (1 side), zippered pocket on the other side. Magnetic closure. And my big modification; I got a single strap, but NON-adjustable (the metal irritates my skin) so she just sewed 1 solid strap according to the length I asked her to sew it to.

I plan to use it as a work (I'm a teacher) tote, to carry all of my crap to and from school. As well as a gym bag and an overnight bag. She's purrrty!

May I introduce, my Stevie:







And the makeup bag that Katie made, free of charge for the delay on my order (in my original fabric)


I will definitely be purchasing another bag from Katie when she opens up again! I can't wait to see more posts of bags as the start to roll in!!

Ooh! I'm loving the Missy!! I may indeed get one for sure now! How are you liking the Snack bags also? I really am getting some of those and a few sandwich bags (and I do LOVE the coffee sleeves!!) and a lunch bag (I don't think I'll have enough $$ left for Missy! LOL)... I better start making decisions before she reopens and gets swamped again :S

And That Stevie is also great!!! I still like the other fabric, but the new one looks pretty good (it's not too overwhelming or anything).

I can't wait to get my bag now... Still no change in status... Should be soon though, as I ordered a few days after MrsKBB... Fingers crossed it ships this week!!!

Great bags ladies!!!!

Silver, the fabric on your Stevie is gorgeous! What a great size too for diaper bag, overnight, or lugging stuff to and from work.

Thanks for sharing the pics. Hurry up and open, Katie!!

Who was it that had Katie make her a removable credit card/business card holder? could you take a photo of it.

what's on my wish list
1 - Zoey in a neutral B&W pattern (still to decided) that Katie is going to specialize for me
2) a small tote style bag for Kiara that Katie will also do some special details one
3) a whole BUNCH of coffee sleves, that i will put aside as Christmas gifts
4) a whole bunch of kid size snack bags, again as christmas gifts that the kids can give to their friends.

I don't know if I mentioned it earlier, but I did notice that the shipping cost her more than I paid, and I thought she should increase what she charged.

futo - there are now two types of yoga bags. The original opens at the top. It has options for a small pocket or two pockets that wrap around the bottom. It's like a tube.

The Keisha opens on the long edge (so your mat fits in to the bag instead of trying to shove in it). It can have up to 4 interior pockets and includes a bottle pocketIt's more like a gym bag but not as large- does that make sense?

thank goodness she's going to be up and running soon. I didn't really care about the bags so I haven't been in this thread that much... but I was just at a fitness conference with my mother and saw her carrying around her yoga mat everywhere. When I checked the obleek website I saw the yoga bags. I simply must get one for her for Christmas. She will totally be into the fabrics!
