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!

All ever so pretty!!!
And tell me something Elisa: is your studio always so tidy??? Amazing! You should see mine right now!
Happy Sunday!!! :-)
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. ;)

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!

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…
