Custom Bags - ordering, and the waiting list

Thank you everyone for this wave of interest! All your enquiries are much appreciated and your kind words are gratefully received!

The lovely Lucy, who was previously in charge of managing the waiting list and creating beautiful bags, has had to stop sewing for personal reasons. Sad as this is for Onbag, I do completely understand her decision and I wish her all the best in getting everything back on track.

The upshot of this is that I'm afraid I will have to shut down the custom list for the forseeable future. I have just recently moved house (and country) myself and I am putting Onbag into a lower gear while I allow the family to regroup and re-establish. In this situation I do not have the time to sew the bags myself (even if I had a sewing room set up!) or to go through the process of selecting and quality-testing a new seamstress.


Sheila's Triumph

Through blood, sweat, tears and dog-attacks(!) Sheila has struggled on and produced a beautiful bag. She has chosen a patterned outer fabric has has done a beautiful job of lining it all up with the pockets.

Two New Custom Bags

The two latest custom Onbags...This Onbag Baby in brown has a lovely striped linen lining. The stripes run horizontally which gives a very interesting and unique look.

Notice the rather snazzy new black Onbag Label, which is reserved for unique custom bags!

Casey's DIY Onbag - new size!

"I love my onbag baby, but it bigger than I was hoping for when I made it. I finally got around to making a smaller one with the scraps, and it is awsome. Perfect for the daily outings where I don't need to bring a lunch, etc. I think the straps are shorter than I would like, but the size was dictated by the size of scraps I had....
