Commission for Tom
April 13, 2011
This was a super exciting project to do for a couple of reasons…
- Tom is my first ever customer commission via etsy.
- It was the first commission I have made using a mix of fabrics (not ties) given to me from the client and fabrics I found to go with it. This was a little scary at first, because you just never know what the reclaim world is going to have for you at any given time… let alone to a deadline.
- Although I haven’t met Tom, we have emailed often through the process of the bag making, and he was always really encouraging and full of energy.
- The bag is for his wife Ciara for their second wedding anniversary, the theme cotton…. and it is a surprise! Sweet.
What’s not to like?
Here’s the finished bag…..
