I must be doing something right!

It’s such an encouragement to me that most people that buy a handbag or wristlet from me, come back and buy another one! It makes me feel so good that they like what I make well enough to want more!

Here’s a new design I’m working on this summer.

It’s a cosmetic bag made out of white terry cloth with a contrasting ruffle and matching cotton lining. What do you think of this one?

Dorothy at Hensrule got her sweet nautical wristlet this weekend and has ordered the Cowgirl wristlet today! Thanks Dorothy!

As soon as Josie's flamingo family party is done on Tuesday night, I'm hauling out the summer and red, white, blue decor. I can't wait to get crafting again! Keep on creating!!

I'm not surprised at all, you have such talent and attention to detail, the wristlets are such a wonderful idea.I 've been making them for myself and my girls for years, I dislike a big purse, i also do some with a long cord to wear across the body, I like them alot, soft cotton pouches just big enough to hold my wallet and lipgloss, perfect, sometimes I use velcro closings and sometimes a zipper, maybe you could make some on a string for your shop, just an idea, I love your color choices, you really mix it up! Have a beautiful day!!!

I have one of your bags and it's a charmer for sure! And very comfortable to tote around, not too heavy on my shoulder.
