I’d like you to meet Ingrid.
I made her from a design posted by Lisa Lam of U-handbags. She is amazing and I luff her. She is also very generous in that she allows us small-time handbag producers to make a few and sell them. Mostly because us small-time handbag producers will make a pattern the way it is written once or maybe twice before we start tweaking things and making it our own.
Case-in-point, there were supposed to be eyelets and a string-tie in there somewhere that I opted not to put in because the way I was sewing it together I didn’t need them.
And I love Ingrid. She is named after a friend of mine and like that friend she is stylish, tough, and ready for anything. The exterior is canvas, lined with a quilting cotton, and trimmed with a batik. This bag can go into the horse barn, haul tons of kid supplies, be ready for camping, and go on a fabulous trip to Jamaica – just like Ingrid.
We have some solid snaps on the sides, bellows pockets on the ends, front and back slide pockets, interior grab-all pockets, a solid bag bottom, and magnetic snap closures.
Ingrid will be for sale at the Annual Accessories Trunk Show, happening December 8th and 9th at Cate’s house (next door to my house) from 2:30 – 6:00pm. Come on by and find some wonderful holiday gifts for your loved ones and maybe a little something for yourself.
