Usually when I'm asked to do a commission it's a variation of an existing design, but my latest custom make was a little different. The customer wanted a small shoulder bag that was in two sections. It was for her holiday, and she wanted one section to hold the passports and tickets and the other to hold money etc. She also wanted to be able to remove the passport section while she was on holiday (she would keep it in the safe in her hotel room) and then just use the second section. An interesting commission! After consulting with her this is what we came up with..........
The bag is basically two small clutches just big enough to hold several passports.
The shoulder strap is detachable and can be attached to either section or both at the same time.
The two sections are attached back to back.
The two bags are attached by magnetic snaps, so are held securely but are easy to separate.
The flap is decorated with a self covered button in the jade satin of the lining. The inside of both bags have slip pockets and the inside of one of them has a dividing zip pocket.
The customer was delighted to see her idea made real, and I was delighted to be able to make it for her!
