Exactly what I was looking for. I'm actually using it as a coupon/gift card holder!
All of the items in the AbbaDabba Bags line are made by me from start to finish.
Hi, I’m Monica. Welcome to AbbaDabba Bags! I'm here to offer boutique style bags for the woman who values high quality handmade products.
I began by making my own diaper bag in 2004 when I couldn't find anything stylish to carry. I was soon making them for friends and selling them by word of mouth. I now sell them online and in local shops and have hundreds of satisfied customers around the world. I live in beautiful Massachusetts with my fabulous husband and three adorable children.
I have been sewing since I was a pre-teen and officially started AbbaDabba Bags in 2007. All sewing is done by me in my smoke-free, pet-free home studio.
What’s in a Name?
“AbbaDabba” was my son’s nickname for his baby sister when she was born. Awwww…
I am a wife, a mother of 3, a maker of bags and a lover of fabric!
I make each bag individually. The bag you see in the photographs is the actual bag for sale, these are not stock photos of made-to-order listings*.
What does this mean for you?
-You get your bag asap and don't have to wait 2-3 weeks. (unless you have a custom order)
-There is no guarantee that I can recreate a sold bag later as I may have a limited amount of that fabric.
-You'll want to check back often because even I never know what style or fabric combination I'll be making next.
*Sometimes I use a photo of me carrying a different but similar bag to demonstrate the size but that will be clear in the listing.
How to CARE for your AbbaDabba Bag:
Please dry clean or spot clean your AbbaDabba Bags. They hold up in the washer but I can not guarantee they will keep their fabulous shape so I do not recommend it. If you are the live-on-the-edge type and do put your bag through the washing machine then I suggest you air dry it and use a warm iron to get rid of pesky wrinkles.
I live for custom orders! Please contact me with your fabric ideas or special features you'd like to add and I can give you a quote. Custom orders usually ship within 2 weeks of purchase depending upon my current volume. I can give you a good idea of the timeframe at the time of purchase. If you browse my Feedback you can see how fast my turnaround can be. :)
Some possible options include:
-Ribbon or Magnetic Snap Closure
-Add an interior zipper pocket
- matching zippered pouch (with or without wrist strap)
- extra strap length

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Items will be shipped 1-3 days after I have been notified of receipt of payment by PayPal. If you use a PayPal e-check then I must wait for payment to clear before shipping. This usually takes 4-7 days. I use USPS Parcel Post with delivery confirmation within the U.S. I do like to reuse like-new boxes when possible but let me know if you prefer a brand new box. (that is no problem at all) Let me know at the time of purchase if you want to buy additional insurance or use Priority Shipping (2-3 days).
International customers PLEASE contact me for quotes if I haven't added your country. I apologize for the inconvenience. I have added many countries already and would be happy to add yours!
Refunds and Exchanges
*Items must be returned in the same or comparably sized packaging. Ie, Day, Weekend and Shoulder bags can not be crushed into flat boxes.
