Introducing the lovely Payton with her new handmade bag

the back side of the bag was made with upcycled jeans previously owned and loved by my boss, the sides were made using antique kimono material and some denim was thrown in there for some extra strength on the bottom. The leather handle was attached using those cute little leather flower snaps.

a crazy quilt inspired design using all kinds of cute leftover goodies from various projects with lots of beads, trimmings, embroidery added for extra pizzazz. my favorite part is the pretty girl wearing a kimono!

on the banks of the lake where we stayed this summer, Payton poses for a picture with her new handbag. work it for the camera girl!

A bag for Morgan

A playful Asian inspired cotton print by Junko Onishi paired with a baby pink antique shibori japanese kimono material and some solid blue kimono material make for a cute handbag for a beautiful girl.

The bag is lined with a solid light purple cotton material with a pocket for the all important cellphone.

The otherwise boring handles were given some life by sewing around them with coral silk thread.
teeny weeny details were embroidered and beads and sparkles were added at every chance
