As you can see I haven't been writing in my blog lately. Just haven't had the time or should I say I haven't made the time. A lot of fun and exciting things have been happening for me and my creations. I almost feel as though I need to write several blog entries just to catch you all up on what's been going on with me. I have an art show that my art will be appearing in on Sept. 21 at Bon Vida . For more info contact me at email@example.com I will include some photos from some of my creations on display.
I had closed down my etsy shop for a while to organize my dolls and art. None to fear it is open again. We have been decluttering and now I can find all of the projects that need to be completed. I am so content when my environment is organized and neat so I can find all that I need whilst I am creating. I am limited on space and I don't have the luxury at this moment of having my own art studio so I make do with what space I have in the garage and I have devised a system that is working for me for now.
In the process of decluttering I was able to find this handbag that I had been working on for over a year. I will post the pictures with this entry. And people have been showing interest in my handmade handbags and purses. I make all of my handbags and purses using recycled fabrics,recycled materials,found broken objects,seashells,sea glass,acrylic paints,my handmade polymer clay beads and they are all handsewn not a sewing machine involved in any part of the process.
This particular bag I used a pair of khaki pants and a base for the bag. I cut up strips of fabric and then handsewed each square using fluorescent embroidery threads. The inside of the handbag is lined with black jean fabric with a pocket to fit a cell phone and keys. I attached a zipper up top to secure all of your goodies.
The other side of the handbag has a fortune teller with an evil eye in the palm of one of her hands. I will post a photo of the other side soon.
