Stylish and elegant - new bag by Boye By Red

Hello all,

I have been busy doing all sorts of things lately, including visiting all your lovely blogs. 

However, I have not neglected my little crochet business. In fact I have just finished a new bag. It was commissioned by a friend for her sister's birthday and I stayed up till 4am last night working on the seams and the label.

I know I am biased, but I think it is one of the prettiest ones I have done so far.
What do you think? (Click on the picture to enlarge):


It took me at least 15 hours to make the bag and it turned out just the way I wanted it. The more I crochet, the more my skills improve and the stitching becomes neater and tighter. I just hope the girl I made it for likes it too. It is bespoke and nobody else will have one like it (although I am seriously considering making one for myself too; with different lining though). The bag is called AJ Red (I name all my bags :-) and AJ stands for her name initials. I'll let you know what she thought of it.

Do you have a bespoke item you think nobody else has?

Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the sunshine wherever you are.

See you all soon and thank you for visiting.

Red xx

Well, we are amazed! The bag is beautiful and looks highly professional in its finish. Such an appealing colour and with a very jolly lining, we are sure that AJ will be thrilled with it. The 15 hours it took you to make is very eveident in the high standard of workmanship, although if it had been left to us to make, it would surely have taken more like 15 weeks!

As for something bespoke.....our name.....HATTATT, we are the only Hattatts in Britain!

Dear Jane and Lance,

Thank you so much for such a lovely and encouriging comment. I really appreciate it.
AJ said she loves the bag and will wear it tonight when she goes out, which makes me very happy.

As for being the only Hattatts in the country - well that is really rather special. Thank you for sharing that with me.

Gorgeous bag, I especially love the colour. In my opinion, every girl needs a red bag, so this is perfect. Fifi

Thank you for lovely message Fifi.
You are right, every girl needs a red bag, and of course a little black dress :-)
