I have been working on this custom order for quite some time, as I had to go back to the drawing board and do some rework. Today, I am done with the custom order and here are a few pictures.
This picture is of the front of the bag. The customer is originally from Australia and wanted a bag that reflected her homeland. She wanted the flag on the front, so I found this awesome embroidered piece of fabric that I attached in the top right hand corner. The top right hand corner has her first name embroidered.
I chose a light print for the lining (so one can see better in the bag), and the print has all things Australian written and pictured on it. Was a perfect match for this bag.
This final view shows the front and the lining for an overall view of the bag.
I am going to be honest with you, this custom order was a struggle for me all along the way. I now know what it is like to deal with difficult customers, who are unable to make up their mind and change their minds several times along the way. I am chalking it up to a learning experience in this e-commerence business and will make a few changes next time I do a custom order.
