The cutest bag I ever saw!!

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by a lady who wanted me to make a smaller version of the Dolly Popper bag for her 2 year old to take to day care with her. She had the fabric all picked out and I just had to order it. The exterior fabric is from Japan and I am in love with it. I am thinking about ordering some more for me!! Inside the bag is Amy Butler, my favorite!! I had some left over scrapbook ribbon I got while we were in Colorado. I love this ribbon and have been saving it for something really special. I was actually sad to use it on a bag I would never see again, but it went so well that I could not resist!!










I even made Hudson try on the bag. He was not so sure!!


Don't forget to enter the drawing! I'll pick a winner soon!!!


9/1/09--- I just recieved this feedback on my etsy site from the cute girl that ordered this bag.
"I received my custom Dolly Popper Bag and absolutely love it! This is by far the cutest & functional bag I have found for my daughter's preschool. The bag definitely shows high quality craftmanship. I will highly recommend this vendor to my family & friends!"

Addiction

I know that most everyone suffers from an addiction of some kind weather it be a certain kind of food or a bad habit. Well I found yet another one of my addictions. I'm in love with making booties!! I literally can not stop! I was up until midnight (those of you who know have your jaws hanging open right now with a small gasp of disbelief knowing that I never go to bed later then 10:30!) because they are just so dang cute and lets face it addicting!!

Here are just a few.

A new way to order

Here it goes...I am now all transferred over to my Etsy site and it is great!! I will still be updating this blog, but as far as ordering goes I will only be accepting orders placed on etsy now. So here are a few things to keep in mind when ordering off of my etsy site.
  • If you like something you see on the blog and it is not on etsy just let me know and I will do a custom post for you on etsy.
  • I am still doing custom orders (they are my favorite thing to do) just e-mail me with what you are looking for and we can go from there.
  • You do not have to have a paypal account to order off of my etsy site a credit or debit card works just fine too.
  • You can still leave feedback on the blog, but there is also a way to leave it on my etsy site. I would LOVE to hear from you both places, I don't even care if you say the exact same thing both times.
  • If you have any questions about products or how to order on etsy feel free to e-mail me. thevintageclothespin@hotmail.com

I love this new way to order. I have asked many of you to pay using my etsy site in the past and it is just so much easier for all of us. Not to mention that I get your payment right away and am then able to start your order much sooner then with a check in the mail. This means that you will see your order sooner. :)

One more fun piece of news...I'm having another giveaway!!!! Stay tuned for the details they'll be coming soon!!

mission accomplished!



I'm done...OK not really, but I'm most of the way done. I thought I would quickly post why I had to put my shop on vacation. I had an order from a high end baby store here in Twin Falls (I know not the place I pictured a store like this either). I went in there one day with the boys and Brady and she fell in love with my bag. She ordered two boy bags and two girl bags with matching changing sets. Then I got a little bombarded with my Etsy shop and I had to close everything down to play catch up for a little while.

I am so excited that my stuff got into a store! I'm not sure if I will keep selling to her, we are still working out the logistics. But the two boy bags I took her sold in the first five days. How exciting is that!!!

So here are some pictures of the store bags and just some random other ones I was working on at the time. Enjoy!
4 sets for 9 Months Later
