I have been following Anna of @funkydivadesigns on twitter for a while and recently she posted new pictures of an oilcloth bag she had made for herself. I admired the bag very much at the time and a couple of weeks ago I put in an order for my very own oilcloth bag.
How hard was it to spec out a new handbag? Well, not hard at all really. I chose the fabric and then I sent Anna an email with some tweaks on her existing design and that was as much work as was required by me. I then sat back, enjoyed some cake and waited for the results.
Anna very kindly kept me updated with sneaky peek twitter update photos and at the last minute we decided to add some grab handles, which makes this shoulder bag completely practical for all occasions.
I love the bag and for some pennies you too could have a bag made to your exact specification! This is why I love commissioning work directly from designer/makers.
