Nail color: Essie-mint candie apple


YAY! I made my bag and I LOVE it so much! it's awesome!
And the chunky gold zipper just finishes it off perfectly.
Thank you to everyone who helped me decide which bag to make in the end.

The most voted was  #3  So thats the bag I made! Even though this is Faux Leather you could never tell!
I used it all day today as a big fat chunky clutch bag but what is also great is that my laptop fits in there and because it's padded it's totally protected! (my laptop size 17")
plus I already have some orders from co workers!! :)

If you would like to buy one or for more info just drop me an email and I'll get back to you as soon as I can! :)  








P.S. I love this new nail color!!!!

I was just going through your pictures and asking the question "what is that clutch" only to find out that you MADE IT. Are you kidding me? Seriously, I need that clutch in my life. How much would you charge for one commissioned for the Queen? I pay in love, cupcakes and occasionally jewelry. : )

walkabout said...

both your clutch and nailpolish are briljant!

lucinda said...

This is really inspiring. I like how you went for the quilted approach but did you own take on it. I recently made a clutch using woven faux leather/grosgrain/velvet (see link) but I'd like to give quilting a shot.
