Customer Inspiration: Nadine and Barbara

Today I would like to share with you a couple of fabulous bags made by two of my favorite people, Nadine and Barbara.

Nadine is a customer and close friend (so close, in fact, that she was front and center at my wedding, along with a couple of other frequent flyers from the shop...) and Barbara is not technically a customer, because she works for us here at Alewives (doing the fabulous long-arm quilting, among other things), but she started out as a customer.

Let's start with Nadine's bag shall we?

You all know about my love affair with the Winslow Market Tote, right?

The infection seems to be spreading and Nadine has made no less than three at last count.

Here's the latest creation which was started and completed at Sewing Lounge last Friday night:

Gorgeous, n'est-ce pas?

Nadine made this bag completely from Home Decorator weight fat quarters, all from the new Amy Butler "Soul Blossoms" line.

The home decorator weight fabrics made the bag nice and sturdy and I think these particular fat quarters are so pretty together, but then again I did help her pick them out.

And then we have Barbara's Reversible Sunday Sling, which she made in the smaller size as a diaper bag for her daughter, who is expecting a new baby girl to arrive from Ethiopia very soon...

I love that this bag is completely reversible.

Barbara used the super-cute "Urban Circus" line by Laurie Wisbrun.

Couldn't possible be a more perfect diaper bag, don't you think?

Good job, both of you!

Keep up the good work, ladies!
