A nice new assortment of evening bags, the Bebe is a clutch, wristlet or shoulder bag!


I wanted to get a great selection of Bebe's into the shop in time for the holidays. There are always occasions when you need something small, and decorative, in order to carry your i.d, some cash, credit cards, phone, maybe a comb and lipstick. This is the perfect bag for that. Wear it over your shoulder, or lightly wrap the cord around your hand. The padded sides make it a very comfortable bag to carry. I love the shape, it works well to showcase some of the more decorative fabrics I have.
You can find them in the shop here

Faux fur, a mink Bebe Clutch or Shoulder Bag with skeleton bride cameo!

I found a fantastic faux mink, it's simply gorgeous. It's thick and luxurious, but so hard to photograph in a way that shows you have great it is. I made a Bebe with just the faux mink, which you can find in the shop here.

But then I found this cameo. Called many names, including Lolita Skeleton and Skeleton Bride, I like to call it a Gothic Cameo. It's raised from the surface like cameos from the past, and I've never seen anything like it. I love it and thought it would be great on a faux mink Bebe, found in the shop here


This is a stock pic of a Bebe to show the scale with an iPhone.
The Bebe is designed to be used as a shoulder bag, or as a wristlet clutch. You can wrap the strap loosely around your wrist if you wish to carry it in your hand. It's padded to give it some structure and shape and has two inside pockets to hold id or cash. Perfect for a special occasion.


Swedish Garden Tilly Shoulder Bag

I acquired this fantastic Ikea fabric and knew it was headed for a Tilly Shoulder Bag. It's a home decor weight, so thicker than the usual cottons I use. The graphics are bold, yet the color way is somewhat muted. It's an eye catching bag that can be used for so many things. A great travel bag, diaper bag, project bag, even an everyday bag for those of you who need to carry a lot of work related materials with you.
Find it in the shop here

Zen Charmer one of a kind Fox Deluxe Shoulder Bag

Spectacular, and out of print, Alexander Henry fabric, called Zen Charmer, used to great effect on this Deluxe Fox Shoulder Bag. One of my all time favorite fabrics, I know I probably say that a lot, but this one is fantastic isn't it?

Zippered pocket on the back makes this a deluxe version. You can find it in my shop here


I'm still here!

Major issues with my internet connection have been keeping me from blogging recently. I have had to downgrade to dial up while changing service providers. What a challenge, especially at this busy time of year. I expect to be back in the fast lane some time next week. Fingers crossed! I am busy making new inventory and working on a multitude of custom orders, but trying to add stock to the shop, or work with pictures is just not happening.
I'll be back with new bags to share as soon as possible!


Gorgeous set of bags for a wool spinner!



I did this set of bags for a customer who spins wool. She is even part of a group who get together to spin. So it's the spinner version of knitting in public. She was drawn to the spider web images, which so complement the purpose of the bags. She ordered a Kipster, or as she dubbed it, the Spinster! She added a Suebee drawstring bag, using a great fabric with a silver metallic spider and web, that is very effective.  Finally an Otter Hipster bag with the spider web front and center. A beautiful set.


Internet Issues

I thought I'd use Blogger to let you know I am having intermittent internet issues. If you have contacted me and I haven't responded in my usual time frame, I am probably on hold on the phone, trying to get some assistance ! LOL
