Ooh, I like that Simone. I was thinking I wasn't going to place another order, but I really like that with the adjustable strap.

None of the new fabrics are grabbing me, though. Some of the quilters weights are gorgeous, but having already bought a canvas weight, I don't think I would buy anything lighter.

Does anyone have something in the Cranberry Toile? Is it a red, or more of a pink IRL? The other one I would consider is red damask, but my other bag is brown damask. So getting the red damask seems a little un-imaginative.

Could someone be nice enough to post the link to her fabrics? I can see the new ones in her blog, what my smart brain can't figure out how to find the rest...

thank you! and shame on all of you for corrupting me into buying bags i don't really *need* :-)

Oh.My.God.

You're ALL evil.

I have resisted and resisted opening this thread. Why? Because I have this little bag obsession. Today, seeing all the pages, I finally gave in.

And now, I.must.have. an Obleek bag. Or two. Maybe three. Hmmm... bet my Mom would like one too.

I blame you all and will direct DH here so he can blame you all too!

ok ladies... I have been corrupted by you all... thanks

I am a complete newbie on the whole ESTY/Obleek "world" so I may be asking dumbo questions but I am going to ask anyway:

- how do you order a bag? (see... told ya) I see some of you have *custom* bags ie: add ons, zippers instead of buttons etc. do you just email Katie and tell her what you want? How do you know what it will look like/what works..

-how do you choose a fabric? do you just say I want a "_____" bag with "______" fabric please...?

- I am planning on ordering a bag as a diaper bag, which one would you suggest? I see the Abby is quite popular but what else would work?

hmmm... thats all I can think of now... I may have more

thanks!!

Hacthor,
Obleek had put a hold on custom orders for the past few weeks. For the past few weeks, you could only order already-made items, which is why they are depleted in stock (if you look at their Etsy site, there are not many items remaining!). They are reopening tomorrow for custom orders.

Before, all you had to do was click on the model you wanted and there were also separately listed add-ons that you would click on to add. This will change a bit. Their website has the description about how to ask for custom items:
obleek bags

To choose your fabric, you can either order and then there is a note to seller where you can specify things (like the fabric) or you can send Katie a convo and tell her which fabric you want.

I have not ordered a diaper bag from Obleek, but it seems like the large Abby (and maybe the large Stevie) are the most popular.

Here is Obleek's guide to all the items they are selling:

I have a quick question for those who have a bag already. Did you order in the Quilters Cotton or in the Home Decor? And if you ordered in the Quilters Cotton, how does it hold up?

Thank you!

You're all just bad, bad influences. I've been lurking in this post for a while and am in LOVE with the Earth Flowers in Black fabric, but am heartbroken to see that it's not in their options for when they reopen. Now what am I going to do? I've emailed them to find out if they have anything in stock in that fabric and will be so sad if there's nothing available. I'm totally not a 'bag' kinda girl, but I love these!!!

When I ordered mine, I was told that the "earth flowers" had been discontinued and to have a second choice picked just in case there wasn't enough to make mine. But I lucked out. It sucks though, because it's such a nice fabric design.

I wonder which fabric will run out first (I always like to see which are more popular)! I really love her new fabrics, especially the Canvas ones.

Meanwhile, although I'm already planning my next purchase, I can't wait to receive my Gracie & Kirby too!

OK... so I'm out of luck on the Earth Flowers, but have a couple of other fabrics that I'm loving more and more. Where can I see a summary of each of the bags and their dimensions? I can't seem to find that information anywhere on the Etsy or Flickr sites.

I like the serenity in mauve and the kiwi flowers.

I just ordered a large Stevie and didn't specify the pockets I wanted. I'm not really sure what I should get. It is for a diaper bag.
Any suggestions??

honeysher - how are you ordering in charcoal and chalk??? I thought that had been discontinued???

As for me, I got my order in this morning, I'm hoping I was one of the first! One gracie for me, one abby and one business card holder. So excited!!!

Has she put up many of the custom orders yet? Or am I just being paranoid that she missed my bag details?

Which type of fabric to get?

I've decided to get a large lunch bag and a Maya to use as a gym bag.

This is my first time ordering a bag from her. I'm not quite sure which type of fabric to choose. She recommends the home decor for the Maya, so I will probably choose that. But what about the lunch bag? I'm assuming that the home decor would hold up better for this too, but most pics I've seen have used cotton instead. I'm not sure how thick quilter's cotton is, but cotton just seems too thin to me? Which type of fabric did you choose and are you happy with it?

Question. I placed my order VIA convo this morning. (right at opening time). My reserved listing hasn't been made yet. There are people who aren't using the convo to make thier purchase. Are their orders going through before mine now? (they are deemed "sales" when mine isn't yet.)

I just talked to Katie about this!! This is what she said:

She is using the time stamp on both the orders placed via Convo and those orders submitted without one. Each order will be entered in chronological order according to the time stamp. It is truly a first come first served basis regardless of which method you choose to order.
