I put in a special request...a business card case for my purse and she said no problem! Here's what it'll look like:



Now I really need to take a step back...I could keep on shopping and shopping.

Ooh! I'm loving the business card case!! Mine always get icky cause they're in the same pocket as some of my other stuff, so that's a great idea!

And I am definitely loving the Gracie now! Thing is I love it in THAT patern and I know she doesn't have it anymore. Boo urns!

I did it! I ordered my Obleek bag! I got the large Abby in Antique Damask on Black with a lime green interior. I also ordered a matching Kirby for myself and then another Kirby in Sophistica with a red lining for my SIL for Xmas. Now the task of trying to be patient until it all arrives!

How do you guys know about the interior colours? Or do you just ask for a random colour and see how it goes?

I just asked for the colour I wanted and mentioned that if she didn't have it to use the most similar to it. I know that she has something close to it by looking back at some of her finished work projects.

They are indeed beautiful bags!!

This is my purse. I'm getting a lunch bag in the same fabric as the lining (I custom ordered the exterior fabric) and I'm also getting a lunch bag for DH in a custom ordered fabric.

My bag - The Simmone





TTC, how much extra did it cost to custom order the fabric? I have fallen in love with another fabric from the same manufacturer. But I assume Katie keeps her prices low by not stocking too much fabric.

I think it was $10 or $15, I'm not sure.
I don't think that this fabric will be a custom order anymore as it's become so popular.
This is one of the bags I ordered

She had told me that the charge was $10 for fabric under $9.00 per US meter, and $15 for fabric over $9 per US meter. You could definitely convo her to confirm though - I had no fabric in mind when I had asked her, so it might make a difference.

I'm so loving that kiwi fabric. Such a close second to the Earth Flowers fabric.

I'm really anxious to see other people post photos of their bags once received. I'm thinking of my next purchase and am unsure between another Gracie or a Cleo. I lOVE my Gracie, but maybe I should go for something different. Although for some reason, I've always had square/rectangular purses, so 2 Gracies would still be something different for me. Anyway, once I see some of your bags, I'm sure I'll make a wiser decision!

The kiwi fabric is great - I've ordered a Kirby in that one and I can't wait to get it! I'm also getting a Cleo, but in a different fabric.

Sher, I love them all! I love the Gracie/Kirby with the fabric combo (charcoal chalk & black)!
Does the Kirby fit nicely in the Gracie, or is that not the intended purpose?

You know they now sell Gift certificates?? Your gift recipients can now have the fun of customizing their own bags!

At least one of my SILs will get a GC for Christmas. I plan to take my bag to Toronto in a few weeks, and I'll see if my sister or 2 SILs there make any comments about it.

I'm getting impatient, though. It's been 9 days since I ordered. Fortunately, the mail should be quick from Edmonton to Calgary. Right?

just click, commit to buy and select PayPal (if that's how you're paying) but don't actually go into PayPal. Just wait for her to convo you a receipt to pay.

Wahooo, I finally ordered. I ordered 2 simone bags. One in the kiwi, and another in loud and lime, and a matching lunch bag in loud and lime. FYI, she now charges an extra $5.00 to have a bag lined with a printed fabric, free still for a solid fabric.
I hope shes a little more caught up since she was swamped with WB orders after her vacation and gets mine out faster, because I really, really am excited to get mine.

Can you post a picture or a link to the "loud and lime"?

Also, I don't think she's backed up because of her vacation, her blog said she had her mom working while she was away. I think she's backed up because of all YOU guys.

Not me, I just ordered 1 bag, it's all the rest of you!

I bought mine on the 14th and convo'd her on Friday to check since it just said "received payment" She said she had shipped them last week so hopefully yours are in the same boat!

Are these smaller than the regular makeup bags or larger? My sister and mom want a wristlet but not as big as the Kirby. So Katie said she'll make them smaller makeup pouches with the wrist attachment (can't make the Kirby smaller due to the pleating).




She said she can make them for anyone looking for them
This is what it will be similar to.
