Commission Complete: A Bag for Deanna

February 4, 2011

Back in June 2010 I was given a very special bag of ties.

You can read about it here.

In short, it was a timeline of ties given to me by a lovely mother and daughter who are friends of mine, and who love harrysdesk.

At the time I was commissioned to make two satchel bags, using as many of the co-ordinating ties from the bag as I could.

Caroline’s you may remember looked like this.


Deanna’s bag was commissioned as a surprise Christmas gift from Caroline for her mother.

Have a peek.

    Ooh! Don’t they look lovely! Mine is well used already, and mum really liked hers for Christmas. Thanks Ally! Perhaps there’s an old safari suit of dad’s that could be up-cycled into something more useful for next Christmas ! 🙂

    Hi Ally,
    I have been very remiss in not thanking you for my lovely bag….I have been a bit pre-occupied for the past couple of months. It was an amazing surprise to receive it at Christmas and I am in awe of your creative streak!
    Sadly, the safari suit was donated to a ‘good cause’ shop a couple of years ago so you are excused from that challenge!
    Many thanks, Ally. Long may you continue to have inspirational up-cycling ideas for us all to enjoy.

      Thanks Deanna,
      I have been praying for you over the last couple of months. Tough times….
      About that safari suit…… are you sure there isn’t another lurking in the cupboard somewhere?
