Abba Dabba Bags Review & Wristlet Giveaway! Day #16 of the Fabulous February Fiesta!

Looking for a new handbag, tote bag, baby bag, make-up bag or wristlet? Whatever type of bag you're looking for, you'll find one in a bold colored, funky design at ABBA DABBA BAGS.

Functional and versatile, these bags are perfect for any outing you go on. Teachers will love the larger tote styled bags for all of your books, organizers and supplies; the zipper pocket inside allows for you to keep your smaller items from being lost in the bottom of your bag. The sturdy straps are comfortable enough to tote anywhere!

The inside of bags made by ABBA DABBA BAGS are made with complimentary colored fabrics that really make your bag stand out in a crowd. Abba Dabba Bags are made with quality fabrics and very high standards. I love the fact that on their site, they have so many different views of their bags, inside, outside, every different way. It's like you're "feeling and touching" without leaving your computer! Abba Dabba Bags is on popular sites such as ETSY, and ArtFire as well, so be sure to look for them there!

4BabyAndMom got a chance to talk to Monica, owner and creator of Abba Dabba Bags, and got to know her a little better. Here's what Monica had to say!

Tell me what you love about your company, and a little bit about the woman behind Abba Dabba Bags!

I am a mom, a wife and a bag-maker. My mom taught me to sew when I was young but I didn't make my first bag until my son was born. I just couldn't find a diaper bag that suited my style and needs so I gave it a try. It was a beautiful toile and pink tote that got attention wherever we went. Eventually I had requests to make them for friends (and friends-of-friends) and AbbaDabba Bags was born. I had recently made the switch from VP in the corporate world to stay-at-home mom when I started selling my bags online. It seemed like a nice hobby to keep me sane but it quickly changed from a hobby to an official business. I love having the opportunity to be creative and the flexibility to fit this business into my family's schedule. I am always working on new bags and searching for new fabrics but it is my fabulous customers who do the most to keep me challenged and inspired.

Thanks Monica for sharing that with us!

I love the Weekend Size XL Tote! The fact that it can double as a diaper bag is great! The key hook is my favorite part, no more digging through the bag for the keys, what a time saver.

Oooh, I love anything using Amy Butler. And these clutches would be perfect to hold tissues (before or after they've been torn to shreds by little noses)
