Introducing the “Barlow Bag”

I’ve been selling these for a few months now, but I thought it was time to officially introduce my newest style: The “Barlow Bag”!  This convertible bag is available as a cross body, but the strap quickly shortens to purse length to be carried on the shoulder.  Ready made items are currently available in my Etsy shop, and of course you can always custom order by visiting the Contact tab above.

Tapered at the top, with a pleated, curved bottom to accommodate a full bag, it holds a lot but stays flat against your body.

Size wise, it falls between the smaller “Pennsylvanian” and the “Essentials” bag.

 The “Barlow” stands 14″ tall and 4″ deep. The top measures 12″ across, while the wider bottom is 14″. It contains 2 inner pleated pockets, but can be upgraded to 4 pleated, or 2 pleated and one flat. The cotton belting strap adjusts up to 50″ in length (longer lengths available by custom order).

The “Barlow Bag” is available with a messenger flap closure (with magnetic snap), or with a zippered top (pictured below)Image.

To order, please contact me, and I’ll send you my current fabric choices.  The “Barlow” bag is available for $55.  Embroidery, monogramming, and appliqués are available for an additional fee.

The “Barlow” can also be ordered in a purse length with a matching fabric strap for an additional $8.

Win a FREE Essentials bag!

If you are in the San Antonio area, then Oct 13 could be your lucky day!

You could win THIS Essentials Tote Bag by attending San Antonio’s International Babywearing Week Celebration at The Cove.

This bag showcases KAS premium heavyweight fabric in the Cavallo Marble print, and a classic contrasting stipe on the side gussets creates a modern contrast. Black rick rack trim finishes the top edge. Woven cotton straps in black are secured attached, reinforced, and 14″ drop. A divided interior full of large pockets gives everything a place, and keeps the large space organized and functional. Read more about it here.

I attended this event last year, and we had such a good time.  Lots of great people, information on many types of carriers, snacks, and great prizes! And if you would like to participate in the contests but need the equipment, there are still a few clearance ring slings at http://www.FreeRoseStudio.etsy.com.

If you love the bag and aren’t in the SA area (or don’t want to take a gamble), never fear: this bag is available in my Etsy shop as well.  I hope to see you at The Cove on October 13, 2012 to support this great celebration!
