Good and Crazy People by Carissa

Hi, I'm Carissa. I make custom bags and totes. All fully lined and designed by me unless otherwise noted. I don’t claim to be a professional, but I love doing it!

This all started pretty recently/accidentally. I have a lot of sisters, and several of their birthdays fall in the same week of the same month! I decided I would make them a small tote. But then I realized making one tote wasn’t very cost effective because one yard of fabric will make one bag, but 2 yards will make 2 or even 3 bags?? So then I realized that I had several friends birthdays coming up right away as well, and it would cost me nearly the same to make 6-8 bags as it making only a couple!

The good news is, people REALLY liked my bags, I began selling some of them and had to buy more fabric, and it’s sort of taken off from there! The bad news? My sisters have never gotten those birthday presents!!

I now make 3 sizes of totes, small 9½ by 12½” (and everyone keeps calling them scripture bags, oh well, that’s what they are now).

Medium 12 by 15”

Large 15 by 18"

I have this terrific Hobo bag I call the Mod bag (the tutorial for this bag is from JCarolineCreative.com).

And I’m working on a diaper bag design that will look a little more like a messenger bag.

Thanks Carissa your totes are beautiful and made with such amazing fabric!
