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.

Three New Bags

Here are 3 new bags. Each one I loved making. I recieved 3 large garbage bags full of upscale fabric. 2 of these bags have that fabric in it.

Tan with Blue Flowers and a Butterfly $95 Will be at the show on December 3
I was trying to get a close up of the curly q for the butterfly.

Interior upscale fabric.......yummy!!!

Owlie $95
This bag I made especially for Yvette at Tantra Spa. I hope she likes it. It has a really long belt so she can pull it over her shoulder.

The interior is a vintage 70's curtains. LOVE this fabric. Groovy baby!!

Red with Cream Cashmere Flowers $125 Will be at the show December 3
This is my newest try at different flowers. These flowers are made of cashmere and it is twisted into a flower. They took me a long time figure them out and I love the results!!

The flowers spoke to me and said, "I am ready for my close up!!"

More yummy upscale fabric. I love this interior. It has a few surprises. All of them were orginally "accidents" from on other bags, that I did here on purpose. I find some of the accidents are lovely additions.
