Owl Messenger bag

a friend requested a diaper bag for her new baby. only she didn't want it to be a diaper bag, she wanted it to be a "bag I can carry around at all times and not look like a diaper bag, but with lots of pockets."
her requests: purple, orange & green fabric, owls & mushrooms, lots of pockets.
this is the outcome. there are 7 pockets total.

detail of the fabric
their daughter's middle name is Clementine, I made this citrus applique as an homage to her.

Butterfly Buttons slouch bag

one of my best friends from childhood found me on Facebook. I haven't talked to her in 6 years... we fell right into our same old banter and she realized I made bags!!! she collects buttons and asked if I could make a bag for her using all of her favorite buttons. I said "sure!" but had no idea what I was getting into.this is my favorite butterfly.

she gave me artistic liberty to design the buttons as I wanted- I decided to make them resemble butterflies. I am in love with the outcome!!!
