New Bag...an Etsy Shop Review

With the summer quickly approaching....a new bag is always necessary. When I had Christopher (4 years ago) my hubby wanted me to be a 'trendy' new mom and so he had bought me a black Coach diaper bag. I love it. I used it for a long time with Christopher and then took it out again last year when I had Anthony. It was expensive so I knew I need to use it to the fullest!! Well, I came across a great Etsy shop called Doodlescoot Designs. She specializes in custom diaper bags, handbags and accessories.

I contacted Teri and she was great during the whole design process. I chose the style of bag I wanted and then had to decide on the fabric and whether or not I wanted it monogrammed. Any questions I had, she was very helpful and even sent me pics of some of the fabric and thread options. Since the bag is custom, it took a little longer to make. Almost 3 weeks. It seems like longer when you are checking your mailbox everyday with the anticipation of your order!! One of the best things was the price....ONLY $49. I think that is a great price for a custom bag. I have seen many beautiful bags on Etsy, but all were much more expensive. I have gotten so many compliments on this bag...I just love it.

The bag is so roomy. It has a ton of inside pockets, great for organizing. I have everything but the kitchen sink in there....and it still closes. Check out her shop...you won't be disappointed!



I did end up doing the monogramming, even though I don't have a middle name! I did the first letter of my name and my boys.

Adorable! I'm definitely going to have to check this store out! Love Etsy even though it's all still new to me. I've ordered several things for GG's b'day and I can't wait to share them.
