What I’ve Been Working On (#WIBWO) Summer 2014 Edition

Hello!  It’s been awhile!  I’m sorry that I haven’t update this blog in so long!  I have been having a wonderful summer, and I just haven’t made the time to sit behind the computer.

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you will have seen some of the fun times we’ve had, as well as what I’ve been working on.  Today I want to share with my blog readers what’s been going on in my studio…

The following post is going to be picture heavy, but I just have so much to share!

I got really busy this summer working on my signature Wet Bags ($14).  I picked up some new fabrics and was so excited to ship these bags to clients near and far!

These Anchor Wet Bags SOLD OUT in just a couple of days!

Fabric Keyrings ($7), one of the first handmade accessories I debuted back in 2011, are popular year-round, but more so during the school year when parents purchase this cute and practical gift for their child’s teachers.

During back-to-school time, I feature my Fabric Lanyards ($10).  These are great for teachers, students, and anyone who needs to carry a badge at work.  These are also great to hold your keys!  I wear mine tucked into my top when I go for a walk or jog.

I had a custom request a couple of weeks ago from one of my most dedicated clients for a Grocery Bag Holder ($10). This is new to AquaSeventy6 and I am happy to debut it on today’s blog:

Finally, this summer I debuted a Layette Combo. This comes with 2 applique onesies, 2 applique burp cloths and a matching vinyl-lined “Everything Bag” made to order for $40 (15% savings) or upgrade the Everything Bag to a full-sized Wet Bag for just $2 more (that’s a 20% savings.) These make unique and thoughtful baby shower gifts!

This is an example of the Little Man combo.

If you want to place an order for anything you see on my blog, email me at aquaseventy6@gmail.com.  Everything is made-to-order and ships first class with tracking. Thanks for reading! xoxo

Boho Passport Bag

The first time I’d ever flown out of the country was on my honeymoon.  This was back in the day when you could enter and exit the Caribbean with just your driver’s license and birth certificate.  Even though Hubs didn’t have one, I already had a passport, and I was in charge of keeping all of our identifying documents safe.

I remember my parents using an old zippered pouch that they got at their bank while traveling.  I was given a similar one at my first gyno appointment (it was purple and originally held all sorts of woman’s health information), so of course, that became our “passport case” for the next 10 or so years.  I’m pretty sure Hubs never knew it was a gyno bag.

I stopped using the purple bag a couple of years ago because it simply was too big and bulky to comfortably fit in my purse. My need for a passport pouch wasn’t eliminated, though, and I ended up using a plastic baggie to hold our passports on our trip to Rome. Blah!

It finally dawned on me (too late) that I could have used an Everything Pouch!  The idea stuck, but it wasn’t until I came across a fantastic fabric this weekend that it came to fruition.

Introducing the Boho Passport Bag:

I tweaked the dimensions of the Everything Pouch, so that it was big enough to hold a few (at least 4 or 5) passports, but small enough to fit comfortably in your purse or briefcase.  Those of us who bring carry-on luggage know that it is hard enough to squeeze your purse underneath the seat, so this guy is nice and flat to take up little space.

I love the vintage postmarks on the fabric, as well as the color!

I lined the inside with a fabric in coordinating colors.  I think it came out so super cute!  What do you think?
