I was extremely surprised when I arrived home to find a big fabric
shipping bag on my front porch, once I got inside and was able to open
it I was very surprised to find not one but both of the bags I really
liked from Carlson Quilt Fabrics inside and I really like that they were
both inside of their own bag in the bag in case anything were to happen
to keep them still dry and safe.
I don't think this review will be able to capture how much I truly love these bags, I decided to test out the Jack back first to see how it would hold up to all of my stuff while on vacation and holy cow this bag is ten times better than I could have imagined. This bag is quilted, yes you read that right it is a quilted shoulder bag I've never owned one before and I wish I had. This bag is very sturdy and thick, you won't get a pen poking a hole in the corner of this bag! Not can it stand up to a lot of weight as you can see above with my water bottle, large weekly binder, first aid kit, hand wipes, keys, wallet and more it has eight pockets, two outside and six inside. There are so many details to this bag that it is almost crazy even the inside pockets are lined with black and white polka dot ribbon, the outside is black fabric with Nightmare Before Christmas fabric layered on top plus Nightmare Before Christmas ribbon details and a hand embroidered Jack on both sides of the bag. The straps are long, thick and are comfortable on your shoulders, the whole bag zips up to protect your belongings and the bag has a hard bottom to keep it standing on it's own without falling over. This shoulder bag costs $48 and it is worth every single penny you spend on it. Needless to say this bag will be going with me on vacation and will be my purse for quite some time.
Sometimes when I am out I want to bring a big bag but other times I might want something smaller than the purse I normally carry which is where the Stitch Cross Body Messenger Bag comes into play. It has two zippered pockets and is about half the size of the Nightmare Before Christmas bag but still just as amazing. The inside of the bag is lined with a cute blue floral fabric that really goes with Stitches vibe. The bag itself is pretty thick and the strap is really nice, strong and doesn't dig into your shoulder. This bag is perfect for when I only feel like bringing my camera, wallet, phone and keys without lugging everything else with me. The smaller cross body messenger bags are $38 and again well worth the cost because not only are you paying for something that looks adorable but it is extremely well made and you can tell the creator puts a lot of thought, effort and love into their products that will last you for years to come. From start to finish this shop is fantastic and has been one of my favorite shops to work with I highly suggests you go visit them the next time you are looking for a new bag, quilt, pillow or fabric.
