Love love the bag. I felt like I was opening a present and can't wait to tell everyone about it. You can tell there is a lot of care and craftsmanship put into it.

My GORGEOUS bag arrived today. It is really and truly perfection. I'd been on the hunt for a waxed canvas bag and after failing like whoa at the shops, I came across this beauty. Working with Monday Morning Studios was a breeze! I was interested in some customization and ended up getting the standard bag but adding a webbing cross body strap (in addition to the leather). Truth be told, I'm now contemplating a second bag... it's an addiction, I know, but I'm happy to support independent artists AND get exactly what I want!
Hi! I'm Monday and this is my shop. Here's how it goes...
I design each bag. Many calculations and recalculations are required to make sure the design is of pleasing proportions, functional, and uses fabric efficiently. Then I make a prototype, tweak it, make another, tweak that one, and so on until it is perfect.
I acquire fabrics by combing the web for end of run and discontinued high-end upholstery fabrics and suppliers of quality yardages. It's a time consuming process requiring many swatches, but it is the best way to provide gorgeous fabrics at reasonable prices.
I acquire the hardware. I spend a lot of time sourcing and testing my hardware for durability as cheap bag hardware and leather makes me sad. I love to provide custom strap options to make each of my customers' bags a perfect fit.
I sew, sew, sew! Luckily, I have found several talented local seamstresses with the same standards of quality as I who help construct linings for me.
Lastly, I press, inspect, package and ship each bag. I love to pretty up my packages so each of my customers feel special :)
Mixed in there is photographing and listing each bag and the seven thousand other tasks necessary to run a small business. This is the least fun part, but definitely worth it to be able to spend my day making beautiful bags.
Thanks so much for visiting my shop. I hope you find a bag you like :)
