Ok, then Alex taught me how to actually use the camera. (Please see previous post if you don’t know what I’m talking about). I sat on the heater in our bedroom because its next to the window, with the camera set up on a tripod. All the styles were made out of recycled materials like leather, lace, and cotton found at thrift stores Some I then hand dyed – which I had just recently taught myself how to do. The little hankies and the tee shirt I screen printed – also had just taught myself how to burn a screen and print – I only did this a few times, so much work! The little wallets were made out of leather from vintage skirts; I then hand sewed on heavy chain across the top (very Stella McCartney, but I swear I came up with the idea organically 🙂 ). I loved the look, but it took a very long time to make. The bracelets were made by hand dyeing this trim I bought, then I hand sewed on little glass beads, then glued it to a brass cuff bracelet. Again, very pretty and cool looking, but took So. Much. Time.! The shoulder bags I was very proud of (also made up of all repurposed materials) I designed them so you could remove the strap and use it as a clutch, wear the strap long as a cross body, or weave the strap through the ring to hook at the top, making it a small shoulder bag. Ever since day 1 I wanted my creations to be aesthetically pleasing, but also practical and functional.
