I received a bag from here as a gift from a friend. I get tons of compliments on it, and my friend got to select all the fabrics (which fit me to a T!). They also have some pre-made bags in the store if you don't want to wait for the customized bag!

I discovered this store when I asked a woman on the bus once where she got her unique and adorable bag. At the time, the owner held sales about twice a month on Halsted, and not long after that she opened the store in Chicago; there are now stores in Boston and Kansas City, MO and there is also a web site. This store makes adorable custom-made bags; the bags mostly come in basic, boxy shapes but the materials are very nice. You choose the material for the bag's interior, the interior pocket, the exterior and exterior pocket, and in about 4 weeks the bag is completed.

I have the Pamela bag, which I use everyday; it's nice because it has side pockets for your pens, cell phone, umbrella, etc. as well as the large exterior and interior pockets for keys, train pass, scraps of paper and other miscellaneous items. I bought the bag for over $100 more than four years ago (now it costs about $125), I have used it basically on an every day basis since then, and I still get compliments on it; it still is in good shape. A few weeks ago, I took the bag back to the store to have the straps replaced ($20) as well as the exterior pocket ($18), and it looks pretty good, I'll wear it awhile longer.

One thing I wish I had been advised to do upon purchasing the bag is to spray at least the exterior pocket with fabric protector; I actually have 3 bags from there and because they are fabric, they can get dirty-looking fairly quickly. If I had done that, perhaps I would not have had to replace the exterior pockets on two of my bags. Once they get dirty, it can be hard to find a cleaners that will clean your bag, especially if it is made of certain materials.

This shop is great. You choose from many styles of purses, then select your own fabrics to create your custom purse. Purse styles and fabrics are constantly changing. Fun to do with girlfriends. You do have to wait a few weeks until your purse is done. It is a quality purse.

PROS: Tons of choices!
CONS: Price

One of the first of its kind in Chicago, 1154 Lill Street is a make-your-own-bag boutique. Choose from a number of styles of purses/totes/make-up bags and then puruse hundreds of patterns and fabrics. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful because it can be very overwhelming to choose from. The price range depends on which style you choose. They also have diaper bags.

At Lill Studio you actually create your own handbag! Choose from beautiful materials and accents like closures, trimming, and ribbons and a style and have your bag ready in 4 weeks. You definitely pay for having a personal bag but it is worth a stop especially if you are looking for something in particular or a breath of fresh air from the average shopping trip. Great especially for visitors in the area.
