Project: Silver Silk
As some of you may have noticed, I have been shifting the blog’s focus towards wedding and evening handbags. I felt it’s something I just had to do as a newly engaged lady! Like a handbag designer’s calling, it hit me while completing my very own wedding handbag. It was so fun and romantic (and sparkly, of course) to make, that I didn’t really want the creative process to end! Wedding and occasion handbags are a designers dream and whether attending a wedding or actually participating in one, being a part of that experience is pretty magical. All the bags you see here will also be available for purchase in my new Trend-mix Etsy store.
This will still remain my fashion blog with DIY posts, sources of inspiration, and tutorials, but I will begin to focus on the fancy and fabulous occasion purses that dreams are made of.
The following “Silver Silk” bag I created this week is made of this amazing hand beaded silk found in my local fabric store! The rope handle (usually used for holding curtains) is both comfortable and luxurious while adding utility to a very delicate fabric.
Has anyone else ever felt like they had a designer’s calling before? Let me know in the comments and as always, happy sewing! 🙂
