Custom Made Bag & Fancy Friday linkup

custom made bag

This is the custom made bag I told and showed you here. Just the way I wanted and needed it. Everything has been selected by myself. The leather, the closures. And the bag has become even more beautiful than I had hoped. And I also got a wallet and a key ring that match the bag! That is thrilling for a matchy matchy girl! Join the Fancy Friday linkup party at the bottom of this post!

*This is not a sponsored post! Just very happy with my bag and very enthusiastic about Daisy and her bags!

Where my custom made bag search started.custom made bag

Last winter Gerben and I went with my parents-in-law to a Christmas fair where my brother-in-law had to perform. And there was Daisy with a stall. And so she makes leather bags. I needed a new bag for a long time. Many of you know that because of my lung disease, I always have to bring a concentrator when I go out. This weighs 3 kg so I have to have a sturdy bag for that. Well, there is a standard case with the concentrator, but it is as boring and frumpy as my aunts a.., and you can not put anything in it.

So I needed to have a bag that fits my device exactly, because it has to be upright. But there must also be ventilation holes in the right places. Otherwise, the device becomes too hot and does not work properly. So I took a business card from her stall and we made an appointment early in the year.

Well, it was quite a hassle to take the right size because there can’t be a lot of space in the bag, and the ventilation holes have to be in the right place, and I just wanted small holes and not one a big hole. After two hours the design was ready. Daisy really takes the time for that, very nice. I knew beforehand that it had to be a black bag with everything except silver colored closures. Daisy suggested taking two types of leather, yes crocodile print!

So happy with my custom made bag

And here it is, my custom made bag specially, made for me! I am so happy with it! Because I want my concentrator to be seen as little as possible and I always want to get rid of my oxygen hose. And now I can hide it in the bag and the zipper can be closed without heating up the device. And it is such an elegant bag! Daisy also made a wallet and a key ring for me! Wow! So cool. I was so enthusiastic about her creative talent.

Daisy gives various workshops, from a whole day to a few evenings, but also one of three hours! Fun to do but also to give! That would be some unique present! I already planned with my girlfriends a date, but then Corona got in the way. But we will pick another date for a three hours workshop! The photos below are bags made by Daisy, but these are the ones you can make in a 3 hour workshop! Please visit her site!

    Dear Nancy.

    That must be so great, having such a stylish bag to carry your essentials (and in a far more literal sense than is the case for many others) with you. I love it and admire Daisy for combining functional with fashionable. What a fantastic job.

    The other bag she makes look very adorable too. Hard to believe one can create such beauties in a 3 hour workshop. I really hope you can attend one soon!

    Love,
    Lieske

    It#s a fabulous bag Nancy and all the more special because it was designed for you to hide your concentrator and oxygen hose.

    Nancy,

    I am so happy that your custom bag is also extremely functional for your lifesaving device!
    How absolutely wonderful that this woman created something chic and addresses your device without having it to overheat!
    If you hadn’t told us the most important feature of this bag I would never have to know what secret it was holding!

    Hugs,

    That is great Nancy! I love the design and I bet it is nice to have something that looks stylish with your oxygen . I used to have to use a padded cushion in restaurants because of muscle pain and I thought it looked so obvious. Very nice bag!
    enjoy your weekend!

    hi nancy! love the green & purple!
    i posted my first link today! to think i’ve been following you for some time now and finally decided to pursue my passion–blogging about my Upcycled Refashions!
    one thing is that when i click on the other ladies, links never take me anywhere…it’s been like that for quite some time…so not sure if that’s something on your admin side?
    just thought i’d ask!

    Nancy, your bag is gorgeous! I’m so glad you found Daisy so you could come up with this practical yet beautiful bag. It looks amazing with the outfit (I love this one!). Going with friends to learn from her will be another fun thing to do when things start to get back to normal. Or the new normal, at least! Thanks for sharing.
