Jolanda's Jim-Bag...

Cuddly Jim - you've got to love him! Here you can see him as a fantastic, customised Onbag Baby.

Jolanda chose a soft aubergine taffeta to bring out Jim's glamorous side, and chose a sling pouch for those 'now-I-want-to-walk' moments.

The front pocket is fastened with a snap, but the flap uses the standard Velcro fastening.

Mirjam's modified Onbag Baby

"Thank you so much for offering your DIY instructions for download. I used them for making an Onbag baby and I really love your design.
I tweaked the original design a bit. The side pockets are wider than the bag and elasticated on top with a box fold in the bottom so you can put more in (perfect for hats, gloves, tommee tippee cups).

Kristin's DIY Bag - Bias Tape Variation

This is Kristin's DIY Onbag - she chose lovely natural colours and a leafy lining to match.

Kristin decided to skip the zipped back pocket and found the rolled hem a little daunting (not the first I don't think!). So she modified my pattern to use bias tape instead.

You can see the original thread on The BabyWearer here.

Claire's Bag

I was in such a rush to get this off before I went away that I didn't take any photos! Such a shame because it is a beautiful bag :)

Still, the lovely Claire sent me a couple of action shots so all is not lost!

The bag has a chocolate brown, beautifully soft, cotton drill outer and a wonderfully bright Ferrari-red taffeta lining.

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.


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....

Matched DIY Scandi and Onbag Baby

I love the matched bag and sling look - it really streamlines the whole bag-and-baby-and-sling fashion statement :)

This clever lady has not only made a matched bag and sling, but has also put nice elasticated tops on the pockets - and (I think) played around with the sizes a little to get something just right for her...

Thank you for sharing!

DIY - Onbag Classic and Onbag Baby

Aren't these just lovely!?

This clever lady has rolled the hems outward to show the lovely lining fabric, and she's done a matching 'Classic' and 'Baby'.

I think they both look great!

"So, I finally got fabric (with my Bday money) and the courage (I'm still pretty new to sewing and usually have my mom help) and made my OnBag & OnBag Baby. I did mess up on the big one...
