Shapely Maria Wristlet!

I've made another clutch purse inspired by Maria Felix, legendary Mexican actress and one of my favorite icons! In order to keep these bags unique, this one is different from the first one I made: I gave this one more pronounced shapely curves, just like Maria's, and gave it a strap with contrast topstitching. A real unique and stylish piece!

Feliz Dia de los Muertos!

Lately I've been getting ready for the holiday gift season by designing little accessories for a local brick and mortar shop. I took advantage of the time to make some cute little zippered wristlet pouches in folkloric prints to celebrate the Mexican holiday of Dia de los Muertos. They're structured to hold all the small essentials, have a little strap for functionality, and all the prints are vibrant and inspired by Mexican culture. You know I love all things folklorico :-)

I made four of these pouches available for purchase Etsy shop, and there is FREE PRIORITY SHIPPING on them for a limited time. Feliz Dia de los Muertos!

A big thank you to those who support my work and respect my creativity! :-)

Viva Frida!

A little something for the stylish knitter who is a fan of Frida Kahlo:




Side pockets with decorative topstitching, wooden handles to add to the folklorico, a touch of red for Mexico, and some blue denim for hipness.

I've made this one available in my etsy shop. Click here to purchase my Viva Frida bag.

Thanks to those who support my work and respect my creativity!

María Félix

This is a clutch inspired from a textile sample I created for one of my fashion collections. I used black lace inspired by Mexican actress María Félix, one of my favorite icons. In order to give the clutch a colonial Mexico feeling, I made it in cotton serge in ecru and added a beautiful metal bangle and rivets in dark copper color.

Calaveras!

About a month ago I used this fashion fabric to make myself a tote I use to carry small knitting projects and/or my lunch. I've gotten so many comments on it I decided to whip a few more out and share them at my shop. It's a "just because the fabric is fab" tote: Cute, stylish, and the price is nice :-)
