Sneak Preview: A New Design and More



This week in the studio was spent drafting new bag designs and revising some older styles. Pictured above is a new design made from Harris Tweed wool in a deep mustard and a golden brown combo. It's approximately 13.5" tall by 10" wide. It has an adjustable strap and looks equally great worn as a shoulder bag or a messenger. I'm really liking this modern yet classic look.


I also worked on revising the Semi-Circle Purse. I wanted to make it roomier and thought of adding darts  among other things.  I decided against those ideas as they seemed to change the look of the bag too much. I really like this unique shape so all I did was make it a little taller. And now it's a bit roomier but still has it's character shape. I also added an adjustable strap to make it more versatile. That idea was given to me by a very nice customer. And it looks awesome worn cross body!


Pictured above are Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchels that are still in progress. I should have most of these bags in my shop today or tomorrow. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend. Enjoy!

I love the new, tall messenger, it is really stylish and the two-tone tweed makes it even more special!

I really love the golden, earthy tweeds in the first bag, but I am still a sucker for plaid. :)
I love them all, and I love that you always go the extra step to produce something new and stunning, even when you have success with the tried and true, you look for more! That is a sign of excellence!

That's me in Miami Beach, Florida!


I'm back from a fantastic road trip around the South East, USA!  My partner and I started in NYC and went south on Interstate 95 down to Miami Beach, Florida. We made many stops along the way to amble about and see the sites. In honor of this wonderful trip I decided to have a Giveaway! The Giveaway will be my Saddle Bag, pictured to your left, filled with a few souvenirs ( a surprise!) from my trip. To enter the giveaway all you need to do is follow my blog and post a comment about your favorite vacation at the end of this post.  That's it! I'll pick one winner at random (I will use random.org) this coming Monday. Good luck!

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!
