Holiday Season is here again! Order a custom designed b.shigley original!

When I’m not running Fashion Denver or doing small business consulting, I come out of retirement from my handbag design business and make a small quantity of custom designed bags for the holidays! And… I just got my hand on beautiful fabrics that I can’t wait to put into action! Schedule an appointment to come by my studio and get a custom bag made!

What’s in Sadie’s bag?

I’ve always been obsessed with what people carry in their bag! Check out what sweet Sadie carries in her custom b.shigley bag…

-Popsicle lip gloss
-”Skogar” the sheep from our trip to Iceland

Custom designed bag for a 12-year old!

I must be 12 inside my spirit because I fell in love with this bag while making it. This bag is designed for a girl who loves bright colors and loves her dogs. I found the perfect fabric with the cutest dogs on it. Reverse it to the other side and you have a durable denim in grey with denim handles and pocket. I also put the “Do what you love. Love what you do” motto on there. Gotta start the dreamers and doers off young!

Name for certificate

Passport holder!

I’ve really been addicted to making things these past couple of days. After I spent some time cleaning up my mess from yesterday’s design tornado, I made my friend Sammy, fellow Filipino adoptee, a passport holder! This gives me some fun ideas for future ones too.
