This is a new bag I just finished and photographed today. I'm really productive sometimes, I think it's the A.D.D. The flap was a shirt that I got years ago at the best thrift store ever: Red, White & Blue in Hamilton, NJ. I had turned the shirt into a (terrible) bag when I first started sewing. I never ended up selling it (since it was terrible!) and recently went through my old bags and tore them apart to source for fabric. This is one of my favorites! Love the tattoo inspired image and of course the idea of rebel. I'm also working on photographing my bags a little differently. Outside, without the mannequin and the leopard print. A little simpler, to show off the bags. Hopefully I will see some increase in views/sales.

In other news, I decided that the work khakis could be easily fixed, so I didn't have to buy a (not) new pair. When I finally can make this my living and quit my job, I am going to burn them along with the hideous button down shirts I am forced to wear. I mean c'mon, button down shirts don't work for females!!

  3. I too buy only second hand clothes and most are designer brand for a tiny fraction of the cost of buying them new.

    What a brilliant idea! I love your bags!
