Gallery of Bespoke Bags

When I design my bags, I take my inspiration from all sorts of place’s and patterns I come across.  I have to say an already designed pattern does take the hard work out of it, but I always do a lot of tweaking as well, just to get it how I want the pattern.

Here are just a few of my favourite bags that I have made. Most have already gone to good homes but I do have a couple for sale and the link to buy the bag, is the bottom of the image.

If you would like me to create for you, your own MoGirl DESIGNS custom order bag- just message me and I can create something beautiful for you.

The  ‘For Pleats Sake’Tote 

This little number is a FREE pattern from Lisa Lam of U-handbag.  It does rate as one of my favourite easy afternoon projects.  A meter of fabric – (50cm of fabric / 50cm of lining fabric), a bit of  interfacing & fleece and some lovely leather hands.

I break down now and buy  my handles from Heidi at umvesquibam.  Her leather handles are just to die for and when I want that something special -only the best will do.  But check out lots of other Etsy bag suppliers; 3D hardwares is another favourite.  There are a number of beautiful inexpensive handles to finish your bespoke bag if you want to give it a go – or you could let me!

The For Pleats Sake tote is finish with two metal snaps on the inside as the closure & a contrasting pocket so you find your phone & lippy.

THE CARRY ALL TOTE

This Lovely bag was inspired by the Amy Bulter pattern -Field Bag/ Tote.

On the first make of this bag, I loved it, but found the size a little too large for what I was after. So I reduced the size and its perfect for a stylish gym bag to carry all your kit, a lovely weekend bag or the perfect shopping bag when you know you having a day trip out with the girls.   The Best part?  if your bag looks a bit dirty, its machine washable at 30 degress then a good iron and we are as good as new to go again.

 The Zipped Tote

This style is based on a Retro Shoulder tote  bag that I made as  a custom order.  I made a few changes along the way and used some serious structured lining- a craft buckram as my internal fusing to give this super structured shape and it is finished off with a zip top, to  keep everything hidden.  This bag is big enough to hold an A4 folder.  Perfect for work!
