Like Text? You'll Love this Bag!

A customer asked us to make a bag for her to take the place of her old bag that she had carried for many years.  She wanted the bag to be black and white, with perhaps a small bit of blue or red, but mainly black and white.  She needed it to be an inch or so wider and taller than our usual cross-body bags because she carries a journal with her and wanted to be able to slide it in and out of a pocket.  She also wanted us to use the clasp and a mesh pocket from her old bag.

We really love the way this bag came out.  It's made of the text areas of bird seed bags (plus one bar code), and its slightly longer front flap covers the mesh bag.  There is also a pocket on the outside of the flap.  The bag has the usual three inside pockets.  The customer didn't need a separate phone pocket, but we could have added a phone pocket to the back.

We've made so many of these not-so-small bags that we're finally going to put them in our catalog.  We'll standardize the bags into three or four general sizes, but we will continue to custom-design them for anyone who wants different sizes and features.  If you want to give us special instructions, you can email us or send us a phone number and we'll call you.

The basic bags are 8.5" tall x 6.5" wide x approximately 2" deep and sell for $25, including shipping and handling.  See the catalog page (Bigger Bags) for details and prices for the other larger bags.


  1. hi! I have about 10 small dog food bags I'd like to share with you. I also posted this on your facebook page. You can send me a message if you're interested. I can leave them for you on my centrally located porch or drop them off somewhere for you. Thanks!

  2. Thanks! Email us at and we can set up a drop spot. We can use bags if they're made of woven plastic or sturdy plastic or plastic and metal film. We can't use paper bags. Thanks for thinking of us!

  3. So cute this bag, I like it, thanks for sharing.

  4. You can have one just like it! Email us at if you want to bespeak one of your own.
