I have had a great year in sales so far for 2018. I sold in the art shows for

I design and make all of my bags. Each bag is One of a Kind. Even if I use the same embroidery, I will never use the same fabric or stitching. This includes:
     My own original bag patterns, (made to order for each bag).
     Selecting fabric and trims
     Cutting and making the bags
     Creating all artwork on each bag 
           (except embroidery designs where noted.)
     Each bag is also clean-finished on the inside, 
     Interlined and double or triple stitched for extra durability.
     Each bag will also have 2 to 7 pockets depending on the style.
With only 2 bags left in inventory, I definitely have my work cut-out for me to get ready for Orycon 40.

Now back to unpacking my studio!
