Lea's new Sugar Skulls Kipster knitting bag and a very handsome Jack!
Many thanks to Maddy for sharing such kind words about my bags and sending me photographs of the Mahjong card pouches she bought to gift to her Mahjong group!
Karen, I can’t begin to tell you how special that the bags you make are. I am blown away by how beautiful they are. I am awed by your talent—and your sense of humor!
Attached are 2 pictures for the albums.
Here’s what I posted to Facebook:
For some time now, I’ve wanted to give the friends that I’ve played Mah Jongg with for years a special MJ bag to show how much I appreciate them. My Internet searches proved fruitless; I could never find the unique bags that I envisioned. I recently tried again and voila, I found exactly what I was looking for with Zoe’s Bag Boutique. She offers designs in a large variety of fabrics. Each bag is handmade, and many are one of a kind. There is no extra charge for custom orders.
The first photo shows the Mah Jongg card holder bags and coin purses that I am giving to my friends. The bags are large enough to hold tile shufflers. For myself, I added a purse; see second photo.
I'm a happy Mah Jongger.
"In LOVE with this bag. Drawstring won’t snag my yarn. Small, but big enough to hold a couple balls of yarn and a small project of my spindle and fiber. Clips on my belt loop and I can knit whenever I feel like it. Quality fabric, beautifully sewn. Thank you so much!" AS
Jan saw this new koi fabric and asked me to make her a zippered Tote-ster and large Zini flat bottom bag to store her mahjong equipment. I had already planned to make one when I bought this fabric so I was delighted to do it.
The set turned out just as stunning as I hoped. Jan was kind enough to share these wonderful photographs of the set and Lola was happy to be a part of it all!
Many thanks to Shawn for sharing this pic of her Kipster knitting bag "in the wild" in Cabo San Lucas!
I don’t know where to begin and this is my 2nd review ever. I don’t usually write them which is bad on my part, BUT I have to for Zoe’s Bag Boutique. Karen, the owner and the only one behind this store is extraordinary at her craft, customer service and her imagination of the beauty of bags.
My daughter’s 19th birthday was less than 2 weeks away and I was looking for the perfect gift that wasn’t the usual things. My daughter who is majoring in elementary education, is a book nerd, lover, worm, etc. I had already bought book related items, gift card, necklace, bracelet and of course books. As I was searching I fell upon Karen’s store. She had this unique book pattern but so many bags, so many decisions and yet still I was not sure. So I reached out to her, asked her opinion on which bag, what style, etc would she suggest. After hearing my thoughts and showing her the purse my daughter uses now, she told me her suggestion, sent me to look at various items as well as, since it will be custom made she doubted it would be here in time. Very honest, upfront and I loved that. She was not going to give me any false hope or rush and maybe not do the bag it’s full justice. It wasn’t worth the order or a potential new customer. How could you not find that refreshing and trustworthy.
I knew I was covered with gifts for that day so I decided to go with Karen’s suggestion. WOW is what I have to say. She kept in constant touch with me each step of the way. She wouldn’t let me pay yet even though she was starting it. She sent me updates and was so easy to get in touch with. She then contacts me that it will probably be shipped Thursday or Friday, this being about a week since we first chatted and Friday being my daughter’s birthday. So at last minute I asked about matching wallet and accessories. I was wrong to do that, I know how hard she was working just to get the custom bag done besides all her other orders and customers, but I had just thought of it. Again, she responded with items she had and I picked the Scooter to have with same pattern.
I received email for payment and on Wednesday received email that it was shipped. ALREADY??? My gift, arrived ON the day of my daughter’s birthday to my surprise. Basically a week from start to finish. I didn’t get to look at before my daughter so we just opened it right out of shipping package. I will admit, I was worried, I hadn’t seen any of her products in person and in pictures, they don’t always show everything. In this case, that is true. Pictures did not show the details, the perfect styling, Karen’s craft, love of what she does, which you clearly see in finished product and the beautiful pop of color in the book patterns.
This Tootsie was perfect. So perfect that my daughter cried at the excitement of her gift. Real tears. She was in awe and held it to her chest like a baby holds her favorite teddy. So then I cried. My daughter had a few minutes before her friends were picking her up, she ran out of the room to finish getting ready or so I thought. Instead she was transferring her items from old bag to new one. She said I can’t wait to show this baby off. She grabbed her book and said, “Even though I won’t be reading tonight, I can’t carry my “book bag” without a book.” Karen, thank you so much for helping make the perfect day even more perfect. Your work ethic is above par. Your product and workmanship is a work of art. You now have customers for life. Thank you again. Donna
Nedda purchased this tote and matching flat bottom bag for her mahjong racks and tiles. This set is designed specifically for that use. When she received her bags, although she liked them she wanted a zipper closure on the tote. We made arrangements for her to return them and she bought a new zippered set. In the meantime she discovered that the set she had would work perfectly for her knitting project so she decided to keep it as well.
Fast shipping very well packaged. Excellent communication with speedy response time. Beautifully made with great care and high quality workmanship! Love the print and quality fabric she uses I was especially excited when I noticed the witches faces were green which didn't show on my laptop. Very happy with my purchase and like always will be a return customer Thank you :) CB

This is Vanessa. She is a truck driver and plans to use her Sweet Pea mini wallet on her route. She gifted her sister, a ballet dancer, a Deep Scribe zippered bag.
I LOVE this bag!!! The pocket/strap configuration is perfect. The material is actually quite durable. The print is adorable! This bag is my go-to day-to-day bag and has also already comfortably escorted me to and from Vegas and Southern Utah (as a perfect “personal item”). I get so many compliments about the cute print and functionality of this bag. I’ve been on a life long quest for the perfect bag, and this very well may be it!
