Custom Weekender Bags now available in the shop!

One of my New Year's Resolutions is to do things that scare me. To stop doubting myself. To start listening to my husband when he tells me I can do hard things. Because I CAN do them. I have done them. I'm just a big chicken at times.

And so, I'm taking a deep breath and diving into the unknown. I've listed twelve spots on Etsy for custom Weekender Bags. One per month. Lots of options, including the option to send me your own fabric, and they'll be one of a kind. I'm ridiculously excited about these.

I'm also going to list bags I'll be making in the meantime. It's going to be lots of fun. Because, let's face it, I've got plenty of my own by now. I need to share the wealth a bit! Everyone should travel handmade. But you don't have to make it yourself! I've even got a gift wrap option in my shop. It's going to be awesome.

So get your month reserved! Someone really needs to choose Vintage Picnic for a bag. Seriously. With a mini-Swoon on the pocket!


  1. You can totally do this! All your Weekender Bags are amazing and I have no doubt that people will be thrilled to be able to have one without the hassle of sewing it. I'm pretty tempted myself, maybe when the Canadian dollar isn't so low!

  2. Woohoo! Perfect plan for you - I adore mine! I'm traveling this weekend, I'll be sure to tell everyone where they can find my bag!

  3. I essentially did back flips when I saw this announcement on IG... and then I ran off to see if there was still modern mini jelly rolls floating around out there... and then I dropped the ball. In the insanity of ... life, illness, work... I'm not quite sure. But I AM keeping my eyes out for new lines I love. And then you know I'll be tracking you down! :)
