Receiving a request for a custom item can be many things: exciting, challenging, flattering, and fun. Unlike the production of regular stock, a custom order presents you with the opportunity to get back to your roots and... shock!... get creative. 

There's the mind-boggling, mathematically-loaded logic puzzle that is figuring out the pattern...


Then there's the trial-and-error process of making, fixing, remaking, fixing, remaking, wanting to cry, and then fixing it again...


And finally, there's that precious moment of putting it all together in the most beautiful fabric you own and being presented with the final piece...

 
A Pepperberry & Co. Luggage Tag

Which comes out beyond all of your expectations and makes you feel all warm and gooey inside. And is that, ladies and gentlemen, not exactly why we craft?

OMG how funny! I was going to make custom luggage tags and a passport wallet for my friend's birthday last year, only the clear plastic for the luggage tags got lost in the post and I never ended up making them. Yours look cool!
