A Glimpse of My Week



Worked on a batch of bags this week made from pvc-free upholstery grade faux leather. Yes, the kind you can upholster a sofa with. Durable, eco-friendly and beautiful.  I also purchased a new textile, an ikat hand woven in India, that I had to try out immediately. I paired the ikat with the faux leather and the results are above.




I also whipped up two totes with bird appliques. 



A third tote got some natural jute webbing and two wood buttons.



I also experimented on a new bag design that I still plan to change up quite a bit before the final cut. The results are above. I'll have this one on sale in my shop as a sample. 


My work week actually started on Sunday when I cut and interfaced all my fabric. Monday and Tuesday were spent sewing away and today we had a little photo shoot. Tomorrow I'll have a shop update at around noon and then it's back to the studio!

I love all the new bags, but particularly the ikat. That looks fabulous with jeans. Nice work.

I second the ikat!

What I especially enjoyed is seeing your work in progress.
