Cream with Burgundy and Cream Flower

This bag is made from a Bannana Republic Sweater and Coach belt. The sweater felted up thick and yummy, the belt is a Coach (not much more to say about that...), and the interior is a delicously superior upscale fabric. The flower on the front is a pin so you can take it off if you like and use the flower for your coat.

Going to SoBo Style!!!
Vintage button.

This is a woven, satiny, wonderful to touch fabric.

Sweater Jacket

I started making sweater jackets when I found a few sweaters that felted to the perfect size of a little sweater jacket. This one happens to be for an 11 year old girl.

She started out as this.....and then I thought, this is nice but
looks too mature.
So, I went with this. I LOVE it!! I want to make myself a chocolate brown one very similiar to this. Can't wait to show it to you.

I absolutely love how this turned out. I hope to find more cashmere sweaters. Yea, I forgot to mention that this sweater is part cashmere.....yummy!!

Bags available for sale

The best and most current information to know which bags are for sale and where they are is to go to the "location and prices of bags". Then click on each location to see what is available.

Or click here.

I am still working on the best way to do this.

These are the new bags on the mannequin for size

Most of these bag need to be seen in person. There is a lot of detail that goes into each of them and the insides are fabulous. I have several different very upscale upholstery fabrics in them. Some of these fabrics $100-250 a yard. Yummy!!

More inspiration

I totally LOVE this skirt, from Boden, USA. I will be making something similiar with a thrifted skirt and left over sweater part maybe with an owl??? Or something equally as cute!!

Super Kitchy Owl!!

This owl is super kitchy!!
My son actually drew this on a sheet of paper and I loved it so much that I put it on a bag. Yes, I am getting my whole family involved with my purse business!!
My little one wants me to do one with bats on it. Think there will be any takers?

The bag is teal, the owl is pink and light teal. I absolutely love it, but it is "an owl thing" and you either get it or you dont!!
Yes, I would wear this with everything too!!

A total show stopper!! This will be available at SoBo Style!!
I have to tell you that I am super excited. I am having an organizer come to my house to organize my work area. I think I might be able to get 80 bags done in 30 days if my area was organized. Hopefully I will have "after" photos to show you (of the bags and the work area). I will not bore/scare you with the "before" until I have the "after". And if it works out well, I will share her info with you so you can get your place organized too if you live around here.
