You might remember back in June I came up with a new purse design for my shop. Back then it didn't have a name but after much consideration and deliberation I can finally announce the new designs name.
(if you hadn't guess already going by my blog title...lol)
The Gina Purse.
She inspires me to be me, to try new things, to sew through the fear of the unknown sewing experiment and that friendship comes in many many forms!
Gina originally got me hooked on hexagons and it was a hexagon flower that was hand sewn onto the first design which now lives in the clutterpunk house.
Since the then I have branched out and experimented with a stash of doilies which belonged to my Grandmother, left over zipper ends and more hexagons.
These Gina Purses will be joining me at the Handmade Market in August. The first one to hit the Central Coast... Woohoo.
This is a great example of my love for all things junk lovin!! I would never have guessed growing up as a kid that I would be cutting up my mums doilies to make up cycled purses.
How about you?
Have you refashioned anything you remember growing up with?
You can share it with us over on Em's blog we adore all things recycled, refashioned, road side rescued... you name it we want to hear about it!!
