By kimB has arrived!

I’m starting over friends!

Well that’s a lie, I’m just changing my company name to By kimB.

DON’T WORRY!  punKy J isn’t going anywhere!  I’m basically just adding this onto the fun.

I decided to make the Company name By kimB and start sub company’s so I’m not restricted to one style of creativity.  I have a lot going on in this mind of mine and I need to be able to properly identify my products.

So what this means is that I will have a line called punKy J By kimB as you are familiar with.  I will still have the funky totes, made from recycled products, and always functional.

Then I’m going to have a line called MAN By kimB for…well…Men of course.

And a line that I haven’t named yet for old school shirts and sweatshirts that I will be making into…anything really!

So it’s all the same concept.  1st hand bags from 2nd hand clothes all around.  But covering a broader scope of people.

I’ve already bought the domain name,(which I’ve done absolutely nothing with yet), started a twitter, and a new facebook account and blog.  It’s been a long busy night.  But I THINK I’ve covered all my bases.  So make sure to “like” and “follow” and “subscribe” in those places now.  I won’t be deleting any accounts because like I said, punKyJ does still exsist, but most of the info will be on the By kimB sites.

So hope you see you on the other side =)

Kirk’s Magic Messenger Done…Again! Almost…

Tonight I was determined to sew SOMETHING!  And since KP has been dropping not so subtle hints that he’d love to use his bag, I decided it was time to make the final requested adjustments on his Magic Messenger.  And since I also decided that my policy is “If you don’t like it, I’ll fix it” then I should stay true to my word!
He wanted to make the strap cushions just larger than the size of the strap vs. the same size as the side panel, as you can see in the original version.
So I cut everything down to size and sewed it all up tonight.  Now all I need to find out is if he’s going to want to velcro these straps down to the side of the bag and if he’ll want the velcro to match.  Knowing him he’ll have me dye the velcro so it will match exactly =)
And as you can see in the pictures, working has been very manageable considering all of the wonderful amenity’s I’ve now issued as requirements to sit down and work.  Lately I’ve only sat down to work once I’ve put on a movie, fixed a great big mug of hot chocolate (in my starbucks cup that I got from the very first starbucks in Seattle), and put on my cozy pajamas.
It’s kinda made this part of my day theraputic in a required sort of way.  But I now look forward to creating even MORE than I did before!  Which I never thought was possible, but “they” say anything is possible.  Who knew!  And I know you’re just a little bit jealous of my Chinese take out!  =)

*****Each product is handmade from second hand clothing and fabrics and is completely one of a kind, I couldn’t duplicate any of these bags even if I wanted too! It’s my way of going green and staying in style.

As always you can e-mail me at or leave a comment.
