The idea from Lena from Poppenhausen:
As a color I want a darker gray with an embroidered sunflower (about 10 cm in diameter). On the outside I want a more robust, water-repellent fabric and on the inside a colourful, soft fabric. For the color of the inner fabric you can provide suggestions. The straps of the backpack should be adjustable and a handle for carrying would be good. The backpack should get a standard size.
The story of the custom made backpack for school:
My name is Isabell and I am happy to give you an offer.
For the outside fabric we can go for a good grey canvas that Is water resistant. For the inside please find some colourful fabrics you can choose one.
I have looked at the design you have shared and this is fine no problem.
Have a look and let me know.
for the inner fabric I would like to have the one on the third picture on the second page.
Also, the backpack should be at least 40cm high.
Many greetings 🙂
Greetings from Kenya!
Many thanks for confirming the fabric it is beautiful!
Noted on the height I will incorporate that in the designing.
Otherwise I am happy to start on this.
Thank you and have a nice evening
Thanks for confirming the order. I am procuring the materials so I can start.
I will update you in a few days.
okay thanks for the information
Find attached Canvas in grey. I like it and the quality is very good.
Confirm so I can proceed with it.
Okay, all right
Attached is a photo of the sunflower that I will use to do embroidery.
Hope this is good.
Yes, this one is very nice
I have embroidered the sunflower 🌻 after I did an abstract and a template from the photos.
Now am ready to start stitching.
wow, that turned out beautifully.
Thank you very much
I have had a bit of delay in getting some hardware but am now set to finish the bag.
I have done the design and I am happy with the way it looks. Let me update you with photos and production progress in a few days.
I'm looking forward to it!
Hope doing well!
I have done the bag but i don't like it I want to redo it again.
Attached is how it came out so I want to use it as a prototype so I can do the final bag.
The size is perfect but I don't like the structure ,the shape is also not right i want to make it as per your sketch photo.
The pockets are also not right.
I also want to reinforce it with black leather to make it look more luxurious and long lasting.
Otherwise I love the 🌻 sunflower so much.
Please share your thoughts!
How have you been!
I have attached photos and videos of the revised bag. Please have a look and let me know what you think. Your input it is very important to me.
The bag became really beautiful!
I think the bag is very nice. Did you use real leather?
Many greetings Lena
I love the bag too!
Yes I used genuine hugh quality leather.
I have just realised I missed the colourful fabric inside. Do I redo the inside or you will take with the black fabric.?
Let me know.
The black fabric would be okay for me
But unfortunately I have to tell you that I am not so happy with the leather because I actually want to avoid leather. Can you sell the backpack somehow else?
I feel bad that the bag is not good. I will try and get someone to but though I know it will be hard since it is a custom order.
Kindly let me look for money and buy the materials next week so I can remake the bag again.
Thanks for the feedback!
I am ready to work on the bag!
Really want to make a bag that you will love and be happy with.
Attached is two colourful fabrics that I have. Please check and let me know which one is most appealing to you.
Otherwise am looking forward to make the bag!!
