Set #2: Caleb's Custom Tote A and Wristlet in his US Marines dress blues with Chestnut accents, brown trim, and brass hardware. Set #3 looks very similar, with the addition of his marksmanship badge over the pocket (as it is originally on his uniform).

It's not every day a US Marine emails you asking to transform three uniforms into bags for Christmas gifts. I agreed in a squee of delight. I love cutting and sewing stuff! Caleb sent me three full uniforms: camouflages, service greens, and dress blues. We decided to turn them into three sets of Totes with corresponding Wristlets for his wife, mother, and mother-in-law. This is Set #1: Caleb's Custom Tote A and Wristlet in his service greens and camouflage, Chestnut leather accents, brown trim, and brass hardware. He was hesitant about my proposal to integrate camouflage tastefully into these bags, but this set turned out to be his favorite. 😁 Custom Tote A: http://ift.tt/2dxG5Vq Custom Wristlet: http://ift.tt/1psqJXt #jennyndesign #jennyncustombags #custom #handmade #madeintexas #madeindallas #instablog #marines #military #camo #jennynbags #archive #wristlet

In an effort to streamline my workspace for the fall/holiday season, I'm finally selling my leather scraps... much to my husband's delight after helping me move these over the years. Order in increments of 2 lbs, with color options: Earth tones, Warm tones, Cool tones, or All Colors (for an assorted mix of everything). See my listing for details: http://ift.tt/2djShZs For reference, each box holds 40+ lbs of leather. Each piece ranges in size from hand-sized up to ~3 sqft. Not pictured: 3 more storage bins on the ground that still need sorting. OK fine, I'm a leather hoarder! #jennyndesign #behindthescenes #leathercraft #leatherscraps #instablog #leatherhoarder #organization

Had enough of this embroidered ribbon left over to add a little floral pop to the zipper closure section. See my previous post for Amanda's Custom Archive with this floral ribbon she sent me for the top stripe accent --it's gorgeous! http://ift.tt/1Um5p0L #jennyndesign #behindthescenes #archive #instablog #floral

Amanda's Custom Archive in Dark Roast with button+zipper closure, luggage sleeve upgrade, brown trim, brass hardware, monogram, and a lovely floral top stripe. My husband saw the bag before I packaged it and asked, "That's awesome! Is that a guitar strap?" Nope, Amanda sent me this beautiful embroidered ribbon for the top stripe, and I really love it because it does add a bit of country flair! ...and the guitar strap is not such a bad idea... http://ift.tt/1Um5p0L #jennyndesign #floral #custom #jennyncustombags #archive #workbag #laptopbag #tote #leather #shopsmall #madeintexas #madeindallas #instablog #leathercraft

After seeing this printed fabric on a previous set of custom bags I've made, Kathy ordered and shipped this Virgin Mary printed fabric to me to use as the pocket flap lining for her Custom Archive in Crimson Berry. There was enough fabric left over for me to incorporate it in the interior opening of the bag, too. If you want to incorporate a printed fabric (that I don't carry) into your Custom Archive for the pocket flap lining and interior opening, include a message about shipping a fabric to me in the Notes to Seller upon purchase and I'll respond with the details on how to do so! http://ift.tt/1Um5p0L #jennyndesign #behindthescenes #custom #instablog

Malia's Custom Archive in Graphite with button/zipper closure, luggage sleeve upgrade, gray trim, nickel hardware, monogram, and burgundy canvas pocket lining. I added a little coordinating pouch (Wristlet, minus the strap), just because. If you've been shopping with me for a while, you too may find a bonus gift with your custom Archive this fall and holiday season. :) http://ift.tt/1Um5p0L #jennyndesign #archive #instablog #shopsmall #leathercraft #madeintexas #madeindallas #workbag #travelbag #jennyncustombags #jennynbags
