Custom Order Purses


I am thinking about introducing a custom order listing that will be available in my Etsy shop sometime in the near future. I recently purchased a large stock of the most wonderful cotton-blend upholstery fabric in a linen-look weave, see purse posted above, in a variety of great colors. The custom listing would allow my customer to select this fabric in the color of their choice and select an interior print fabric. Included in the listing would be a list of applique designs you can choose from. So basically my customer will be able to create their own purse! 

In the past I was not able to take on too many custom orders as I always purchased my fabric in small quantities and often ran out of something a potential customer would request. I'm hoping that by offering a custom listing, my shop will appeal to a larger audience. I'm pretty excited about this. Now all I have to do is wait for my shipment of fabric to arrive. If you have any suggestions or ideas I would be very happy to hear about them!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!

Time

My work pictured on the left has taken time away from my work on the right. Spending free time these days with friends and walks on the beach.


Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…
