One of my favorite shapes!

This black & red handbag is one of my favorite shapes. If feels right on the shoulder and hangs right. It is small, but big enough to carry your wallet, phone and accessories. This is what I call a large evening bag.

Metal Embossed Green Handbag

My inspiration for this handbag came from the embossed metal that I created. Instead of leaving the raw edges of the metal exposed I just sewed them right into the seam. Creating this "crazy quilt" method which I really like. I placed the embossed metal piece on point to center it better on the handbag. I love going through my private stash of fabric to find colors that are pleasing to the eye. I really try hard to create the handle myself. I made this handle. Sometimes I do put in other handles.
