New - Victoria Black Rose Pocketbook

I really enjoyed creating this One-of-a-Kind "Victoria" style pocketbook. I love combining contrasting fabrics and these compliment each other beautifully. I dug around in my baskets of trim and found a perfect flat braid with all the right colors and then added some of my dwindling supply of the ecru tatted lace. I love that lace, I need to start hunting for more of it, or more similar to it anyway. 

This is my favorite day bag design. It is the perfect shape and size. Not too big, but boy can you carry everything you need in it.  Click HERE or on the title or the highlighted link above for more details .

I love this style for whenever I go out with my family on a day trip or even just shopping because they inevitably want me to hold onto their ipod's or cell phone or a book or magazine and even with all my stuff (makeup bag, big wallet, and several card cases to keep things organized, my iphone and assortment of pens, paper, sticky notes, ResQ ointment, tissues and other stuff I must have with me at all times, there's still room for the other things I seem to accumulate while out and about with my family. This bag is both beautiful and a workhorse! 

This one is a One-of-a-kind due to the trims used. I can't replicate it. But I do have more of the fabric so you may see a Porch Pouch or a smaller bag show up soon on the site. Maybe I'll try my hand at some pretty makeup bags to coordinate with this pocketbook? 

Anyway, thanks for looking! Maybe this is the perfect bag for you or someone on your holiday gift list? I hope so! Oh, and don't forget, there's always a matching tissue holder and printed tissues and mints included with my bags ... and this one includes another freebie - a matching card case! YAY! Don't you love freebies?

Oh, that pocket book is beautiful! You've done such a nice job. Your ecru machine made lace is nice on it. We are gonna have to teach you about tatted lace, maybe even teach you how to do it, friend! :) LOL!! So many people don't know what tatting looks like. If you're interested, feel free to hop on over to my blog and have a look around. I have lot's of other blogger's who tat links on my sidebar, too! ((hugs)) to you!

Hi there tattingchic! Thanks for posting! I visited your blog and LOVE it! I would love to learn to do real tatting, those HDT's are to die for! I love the lace on my pocketbook, and it does look tatted (to me at least!) but wouldn't it be great if I could create my own laces to coordinate perfectly with my fabrics? OMG. I'm going to have to find some tutorials from you and your friends! THANKS for the invite and teaching me about handmade tatting. I can't wait to try it!

Hi Dianne! Your latest creation is quite loverly, I must say. I'm drawn by the contrast. But I love all your work! Some women aspire to Chanel, Vuitton, Prada, or Kate Spade but I think I'll keep my eyes set on a Dianne Haddaway! ;o) xoxo Andie
