Custom orders – totes

Over the years of selling on etsy, I’ve had the pleasure of making lots of custom ordered rag totes.  I love the process of custom orders…talking to my customers about what they are looking for, figuring out which pretty fabrics to use, of course the sewing :). Here are just a few of the totes I’ve made for custom orders. If you’ve had your eye on a rag quilt tote, but it’s just not exactly what you’re looking for, I would love to make just the right one for you.  I try to make the custom order process as easy as possible for you because I know it’s a little intimidating to ask about having something made special.  Just send me an etsy convo and I’ll get back with you as soon as possible.  eileenchenilletote1 kaylatote1 lindasummertote1 Monicatote1 stacytote1 stacytotea

It’s been a little bit

I’m finally caught up on orders and taking a little breather before adding some new things to my shop. Here’s the custom orders I’ve been working on lately.

I made four totes for a customer in Florida. She wanted tropical colors and prints. I had fun picking these out for her!  She was very happy with them.

I made this king size Christmas quilt for a custom order and shipped it out today. I hope my customer enjoys this quilt for many years to come.  It was a pleasure getting to make this for her.

Working on custom orders

I’ve had to change the amount of days to complete custom orders to 60 days from 45!  And that’s because I’ve been getting one custom order after another lately, so it’s all good! 🙂  I just love getting up every morning knowing my day is going to be busy sewing up the orders, taking pictures of the progress for instagram, and helping new customers figure out the perfect fabrics for their totes and quilts.  Right now, I’m working on 4 beautiful totes for a customer who chose lovely tropical colors and prints for all of them. I should be done with them early this week and the next order will be a king size Christmas rag quilt! Can’t wait to get started on it! The fabrics that we picked for it are so, so pretty!! Here are pictures of all the fabrics for these orders.  If you are interested in a custom order, please feel free to convo me through etsy and I would love to work with you!

Homespuns and snow

Strange weather this week.  We had snow on the first day of Spring.  We’ve had snow up until the middle of April, so it’s not anything that out of the ordinary. But, it was only supposed to be a dusting and instead it snowed hard all morning.  Not sure how much we got, but it was more than they thought we’d get, that’s for sure!  It was gone by late afternoon, though.  I took a couple of pictures.  It snowed for a few more hours after I took them. 😯

I finished a custom order this week ~~ a queen rag quilt with yummy homespuns.  The front and back are the same, so it’s reversible.  I loved making it!  Now, this pretty quilt is on its way to its new home.  Pictures were hard to get.  I wanted to take it outside, but it’s just been too windy this week. So, I had to settle on the dining room table. If you would like to have a rag quilt made with homespuns, please feel free to contact me on EtsyI would love to talk to you!

I’m so ready for Spring!  If you are, too, and are looking for a bright, colorful, fresh look to your home for Spring and Summer, you have to see all the rag quilts I have available for sale in my etsy shop.  There are different size lap quilts, twin, full, and queen quilts. If you don’t see anything that interests you, I have listings to “pick your fabrics” or send me a convo and we can talk about a custom order.

Lap rag quilts available in my shop

I’ve been working on a custom order quilt this week.  I can’t wait to see how it turns out.  It’s a king size quilt using pretty Christmas fabrics.  I hope my customer enjoys it as much as I’m having fun making it!

Rag quilt candle mat and coaster sets

I’ve been making these candle mat sets for years and they have been very popular in the past, especially during the holidays.  Most customers have bought three or four sets to give as gifts and to keep one for themselves.  I stopped making them for a couple years, just not enough time to get any new ones in my shop. But, I’m back to adding them to my etsy shop and forgot how nice it is to sew something a little simpler than a quilt or tote. I’ve kept them very inexpensive, so you can get more than one.  I love to do custom orders for these, too!

Ask me about other fabrics I have or can order and about reversible sets. Plus, I can always add extra coasters to a set, too.

There are a few more in my shop and I’ll be adding more sets in a few days. Now, I better get back to sewing! 🙂 

Fabrics are in for custom order!

The last of the fabric for the Christmas quilt came in yesterday.  I’ve been sewing like crazy today!  Got all the rows together!  I just need to stitch around the outer edge and clip the seams. I’m hoping to get pictures by Friday for my customer.

In the mean time, I sold three totes a couple days ago, so I need to find some time soon to make a few more.  I’m loving all the busyness of life lately.  I’m trying to get up every morning with a set goal for that day.  It’s nice to wake up knowing my day is planned out. 😎

Here’s some pictures of quilts that are available in my shop, ready to ship!

Very excited about latest custom order!

[wonderplugin_gridgallery id=”6″]

A few days ago I had a customer ask about a custom order.  She searched on Etsy and found a number of fabrics that she wanted to have made into an extra large Christmas lap quilt.  So, I got busy figuring out how much of each fabric I’d need and if each place that I needed to order from would have enough fabric in stock.  I was a little concerned about the cost because we have fabric coming from many different sellers including one from Australia and shipping for each was going to add up.  But, she loves all the fabrics she picked out and decided to go with them all! 😀  We sent messages back and forth for the better part of the day and I really enjoyed the process of working with her! 

I added a new page to my website called “custom orders” and put all her fabrics on the page, so she could see how they would look together instead of a picture here and a picture there. After we got everything figured out, I ordered all the fun fabrics she chose. Two arrived already and the rest should hopefully be here by the end of the week. 🙂 I can’t wait to get started on her quilt!  Pictures soon! 🙂
