I finished it!

I am modelling my newly created very brightly colored dress, with the Purple Madness purse:

The cotton-poly fabric has stretch to it, so it's cool and comfortable. I have enough fabric left for a sleeveless dress or short skirt, so email me if you're interested in a price quote.

By the way, I LOVE this dress!

Is this bright, or what?

I'm making a Summer dress with this fabric--I love the retro 60's feel of this fabric. The fabric has some stretch to it too, so it would be comfortable as a close fitting skirt or dress.

Of course, a matching purse with the purse or dress would be the finishing touch...the lining of the purse could be an intense pink or dramatic black.

Maybe use round handles on the purse? Black or bamboo? I'll let you know when it's complete!

One Fish, Two Fish, Big Fish, Little Fish....

This is my next project--the fish is on a cotton fabric and I've outlined his body with black braid and sewed on a black swarovski crystal for his eye. Pretty beachy, eh? You'll see him shortly in my Etsy shop, just click on the emerald, as they say....

The Snazzy, Jazzy Hippy Purse...for me!

I decided to needed a purse for myself and I made one this past weekend.
This purse is reminiscent of a romantic little hippy purse--I sewed a vintage doily on the front flap and decorated it with wooden and natural looking beads. Long rows of beads swing from the bottom and I sewed a small, silver button to hold the flap closed.

I outlined the purse with ecru braid. My green portfolio wallet matches the cotton lining and I made a pocket that fits my business cards.
