Stella Large in NEW! Kaleidescope

Getting oohs and ahs from all your friends, Stella rocks the diaper bag. Shown here in Kaleidescope Teal, the bag features six interior pockets, a zipper cell pocket on the outside, zipper closure and two O-rings to attach the bag to a stroller.   

Even if you don't have babies you'll love this bag for use at work, the gym, pool, travel etc.

There have been lots of changes in my shop recently to help you build the bag of your dreams. Check out the new Build-a-Bag section in my shop . The possibilities are endless.   

Stroller straps are now available as well as dual O-rings that allow any messenger bag to be attached to a stroller with the use of most stroller straps (mine or other manufacturers). 

I now have nine amazing chevron prints for you to select from and a growing number of accent fabric colors so you can mix and match to make a truly one of a kind bag and coordinate with your other baby gear.

Each item is hand-cut and sewn in Bozeman, MT from original designs. Specializing in custom crafted bags and accessories, you can choose your fabric and features for the bag of your dreams. Designed for style, created to last and as always putting the "fun" in function, Maranda Lee Designs feels every woman should have a bag they love to look at and love to use.
