What beautiful fresh Spring colors!
This is a one-of-a-kind tote set with accessories!
I've fashioned my basic tote pattern from a gorgeous print called Caitlin Blooms by Alexander Henry and coordinated the outer pocket and interior lining with Amy Butler's retired Okra Eyelashes from her Belle collection. The tiny ruffle and fabric flower are created from another retired Amy Butler Belle fabric called Chrysanthemum in Okra. These fabrics are no longer available commercially, so you will definitely have a OOAK set!

The outer shell features a large lined slip pocket with a cute little ruffle, fabric rose and a perfect vintage dragonfly pin!
Not only is it gorgeous on the outside, inside it is also lined with Amy Butler's Okra Eyelashes fabric and there two slip pockets on one side that are perfect for cell phones, cameras, iPods or other small electrical devices and a large pocket on the other side that will hold your Kindle, iPad, Nook or other larger devices. There's plenty of room to spare inside for all your other essentials as well! And the included card cases/organizers and tissue cover all help keep this tote organized and ready to serve you as a great day bag or shopper!

All pockets are fully lined and corners are securely V-stitched, of course… nothing is ever flimsy about my bags!

12" drop padded and channel quilted shoulder strap from shoulder to top of bag.
11.5” tall and 14” wide, this bag wears comfortably and securely against your body. Perfect for shopping, antiquing, treasure hunting, and all manner of outings!

Mama's Pocketbook – NEW! Miranda Hobo Sling Bag

Mama's Pocketbook - Miranda Hobo Sling Bag is my newest creation.

I’m so happy to present a new Miranda Hobo Sling Bag. This is a One of A Kind Original Design! I have also created some optional accessories: A set of 3 coordinated card cases to help organize your new bag.

These bright colors are sure to get your attention - and everyone else's attention too! But only one lucky girl can carry this bag because it is truly a one-of-a-kind!

The outer shell features coordinate fabrics with huge roses - black background on one side, red on the other. I believe these are Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I bought only one yard of each print quite a long time ago and cannot find them anywhere again.


The beautiful butterfly fabric is authentic vintage fabric by C S Shamash & Sons. There are 12 colors in this gorgeously detailed print on black background, picking up all the colors in the other two fabrics. The fabric is strong and in like new condition, having been carefully stored and protected. I have used a lightweight sew in interfacing to add additional shaping and support to the fabric as well. Not only is it gorgeous on the outside as a large lined pocket that has a velcro closure. Miranda is also lined with this beautiful butterfly fabric.







There are two slip pockets inside with ample room for your cell phone/camera, iPad, tablet, or reader and plenty of room for other purse essentials and organizers. All pockets are fully lined and corners are securely V-stitched, of course… nothing is ever flimsy about my bags! Closes with a black magnetic closure that is securely installed with additional padding and stitching so it will not tear the fabric with use.

As with all my designs, you'll also receive a matching tissue cover with pretty printed tissues.
Other matching accessories are availble as well!
14" drop padded shoulder strap from shoulder to top of bag.
11.5” tall and 16” wide, this bag wears comfortably and securely against your body. Perfect for shopping, antiquing, treasure hunting, and all manner of outings!

2011 is Off to an Exciting Start!

Wow what a January this has been! It has been a very eventful past 3 weeks, so I'm just now getting started with my blogging for 2011!

The first week of the year we were just getting back into the groove of the regular school schedule and getting over the holidays when into week two we were surprised to get a doozy of a snowstorm - in North Georgia! We rarely ever get snow like that! That snow turned the whole second week of the year into an unexpected additional vacation week. With the kids out of school we just sort of took it easy and enjoyed playing in the over 8" of snow!

Week 3 was a much more productive week - I had been brainstorming with Andy Bee, my sweet crafty friend of Brown Bee Studio and as we were mulling over some ideas for reaching out of our comfort zones and trying new ways to market our businesses, I mentioned that I had been thinking of getting in touch with Jillian Harris (former ABC Bachelorette), who is now working with the design team at Extreme Makeover Home Edition. I had the chance to meet Jillian very briefly last year in LA at the wedding of Jason & Molly Mesnick, and since EMHE is one of my favorite shows of all (I get my weekly Sunday night crying done watching it!) I thought I'd see if Jason might put me in touch with Jillian.

Well, let me tell you .... the Law of Attraction really does work! I had only just started thinking these thoughts when I saw Jilly post on Facebook about looking for clothing, shoes, etc. for the girls & Mom in the family in Beaufort, SC for whom EMHE was building a home. I replied to her that if she ever needed purses to let me know and I'd be happy to donate. I was elated to get a quick email from Jillian saying she'd love to have my bags! The reveal was in less than a week so I had quite a lot of sewing to get done to make three custom bags! It was truly a labor of love and an honor to give to this family - what an amazing way to kick off the new year huh?!!

I'm not sure when the show will air, but I'll post an update when I find out. Meanwhile, here's a peak at the bags I made. Jillian is supposed to be sending me images of the bags in the girls and mom's rooms - I hope she had a chance to take them as the bags arrived only shortly before the big reveal!

This messenger bag was made for Briana, the 14 year old in her favorite colors
This Navy Floral Hobo is actually a diaper bag made from Amy Butler's Nappy Bag Pattern!
The Nappy Bag was for the Mom, who also has a one year old baby girl.
This fun Frogs & Insects tote was for Izzy the 8 year old tomboy in the family.
