just another manic monday

seriously. manic.

my bloggy blog was mia the last coupe days.  did you notice?  i sure did!

i couldn’t access it in any way, no dashboard, nothing.

i was freaking out, just a TEENY bit.  thanks to my twitter friends for the kind words and helps :)

but all is better now (i hope!).


so my usual monday routine is to highlight any new products i’ve got or relistings i’ve done.

and now i’m late, but i think you’ll forgive me when you see what i’ve got for you!

this is a product i’ve had in the works in my head and on paper for way to long and i just finally got it out in “real life”, on the cutting table and on my machine.

and i’m in love.

here they are, my new wristlet clutches!

these are bigger than my zippered pouches but smaller than a purse,

measuring at  10″ x 7″ with a boxed bottom.

it has lots of padding to make it cozy and extra interfacing to keep its cute shape.

i have 4 different styles done as of now, but more ideas are piling up in my dome, which btw it’s just as messy in my head as it is in my studio!

each clutch has a little wristlet.  i played and played with the length until it felt just right.  i really wanted to strap to be useful and comfy, and that’s exactly what it is.

i totally envision using this clutch on dates, when i’m running out for a quick errand, when i’m shopping in costco and don’t want to carry my bloom bag.

it can easily fit my tiny pouch and a zippered pouch, sunnies case and my phone.

you could also use it as a diaper clutch – with a couple diapesr and a wipes case.

but look how cute it is with some matching accessories?!  oh, i die.  just die.  i love my job.


yesterday was lily’s 5th birthday.

10-10-10 – i think that means it was her “golden birthday”?

i would’ve posted, but, well, i couldn’t.  so it’s coming…

bad mommy.

    I LOVE the clutches. And I just die for all the black and white designs. I have a covered notebook now MUST save my pennies so I can buy more. Keep the new goodies coming, it is fun to see all the fabric combinations.
    Oh and golden birthday would have been if she was 10 on the 10th. But a birthday on 10-10-10 is just cool any way you look at it. Happy Birthday littles!
    HAve a great day.

    Just ordered a clutch, soo in love. it was hard to choose just one! any chance of more tiny pouches being done in the black and white with the pink ruffle? or in different fabrics? they sell out too fast everytime!

    Keep up the amazing work!

    Do you take custom orders? I want some of the tiny pouches…just not in pink. Whenever I go to the shop that is the only one that is there for sale.

      i am so sorry – i don’t take custom orders – just not enough time in the day. but i have more tiny pouches coming, hopefully in the next few days!

  9. 12

    Love the wristlets! So cute!

  10. 13

    I love wristlets!! The bigger size is great for an evening out.

  11. 14

    i love your new products and how your business is growing and expanding. i know i tell you this often {or at least i think i do because i think it often} but you are a role model and an inspiration for me and all of us lindsay! ;)gina

  12. 15

    Adorable! Love the ones with the ruffles. They would be perfect for a mom – I used one when my boys were little to throw in their diaper bag with my essentials.

  13. 16

    your golden birthday is when you turn the age of the day you were born, my daughters was when she turned 13 on the 13th of april. we do a big deal, she got a ring. my son’s however will be when he turns 26, not quite as fun or the present has to be bigger. so if her b-day is the 10th it will be when she is 10!
    love the clutches!!

  14. 17

    My fav is the black and white with the pink ruffle :)

    Those are VERY cute.

  16. 19

    I love these. Really, really and truly, truly love them!

    Let me be just one more person to tell you how talented & spot on you are! I always look forward to your new stuff and these certainly are fantastic! Kudos to you…

    I LOVE these bags. It would be so amazing if you made a HP Mini computer “sock” I would totally be your first customer. I really just need a safe sleve to slip my mini into and throw it in my tote. Let me know when you sew something up! :) :) :)

  18. 21

    ooh…hello gorgeous!! I was hoping this might be big enough for my mini laptop, but it measures just over that…:(

  19. 22

    these are so cute (I obviously think so since I already ordered one ;) ). I have been following your blog for some time now and I love all the stuff you make. You are inspiring me to start sewing and creating things (but putting that off until I graduate from college in December…just not enough time in the day!!). Do you have any easy project ideas for a new sewer? I don’t really want to make clothes…

      chelsea –

      thanks for your order! i think great beginner projects are pillow cases. super easy! go to my search bar on my sidebar and type in pillow tutorial and you should get some help there!

  20. 24

    The houndstooth is killing me…in L-O-V-E!

  21. 25

    LOVE them…they are so cute and look like the perfect size…adding them to my ‘wish’ list right now for the holidays!

    Great work!

  22. 26

    I love those clutches. Her golden birthday will be when she turns 10 since she was born on the 10th. Mine will be when I turn 28 because I was born on the 28th, and so forth. I love your blog – you are so creative!

  23. 27

    I still am unable to access your website via Google Chrome. If I load it on IE, it will load but it keeps giving me an error on Chrome.

    Love the clutches… so cute. I need to order some of those for Christmas gifts.

  24. 28

    I emailed you a while back asking if you made your zippered pouched in a larger size.. I was wanting one to use as a make-up bag. {love} … I’m so ordering one of these for that exact use!
    Thanks! :):):)
