Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, it did! Another supplier of loopy ribbons found my website and contacted me today! Now I won't have to hand make all of my ribbon loops. Should make my vintage bags lush and romantic. I worked most of the day designing and re-designing bags - almost done! I know, I know, I have said that before, but this time it is true! It is always fun providing monogrammed bags for customers, but I find the new bag designing process so much fun and rewarding. I usually work on my Bella Fiori Bags in the fall and winter. Now it is nearly spring, and I feel the need to create color, texture and romance ! I think a girl can never have too many bags, too many shoes, too much mascara or too much chocolate! I also spent the day struggling with my serger. I think it is just tired - like me today! My new search will be for beautiful fabrics - brocades, velvets, silks to add to my bags. It is like an old time scavenger hunt! My vintage line will bring us back to a far simpler and kinder time. We can remember our grandparents and all that that includes. Oh, and don't forget the little girl's spring dresses. I will once again be providing you with custom pillowcase dresses! They can be monogrammed or personalized. They are really cute and prissy.
Worked all day on my new line of Vintage Bags! Hopefully, the 1st will be posted by the end of this week. Each time I think I have designed it exactly the way I want, I find new inspiration! With all of the beautiful ribbons, loops, silks and fabrics, I just can't make up my mind.
The pink toile backpacks have been flying out like hotcakes! The new monogram designs are really cute! The designs are especially cute on beach towels. Thank goodness spring is almost here! The winter has been a long one. I have to sew another diaper bag tonight before I can go back to the Vintage Bags!
I will be setting up shop with a friend in her Art Shop soon! I just can't wait. Should be fun.
Our Bella Fiori Bags
Beautiful one of a kind, freeform art bags. Each bag is lined
with tons of pockets. So many styles to choose from.
I love designing & creating my new bella fiori bags. It usually
takes me 1 -2 weeks to complete one, but it is not only great
fun, but rewarding to see the finished product.
Check back soon for pictures of my new romantic vintage line! So feminine and artsy!
