Feathers, Fringe and More


Last week was spent experimenting on new designs and techniques. Had fun creating a fringe and feather clutch. This one will be a gift for a friend.


Added a few large wristlets to the shop with bird and oak leaf appliques.


Also added a medium sized two-toned faux suede shoulder bag with a handmade bird applique.


And here's what my studio looks like this morning. There's a couple of hand-woven ikat and recycled leather clutches to be photographed and added to the shop. More corduroy purses in progress in khaki and olive green and a beautiful butterfly print canvas waiting to be transformed into a tote bag.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead. Enjoy!

Yael- I always take my studio photos in the morning before I begin working. And I always tidy up my studio the night before. If you saw a photo mid-day it would not look so tidy. Often there is so much stuff on the table that I do not have room to lay out fabric to cut. And that is a very long table. ;)
