ruby spiders…

it’s finally done. from start to finish, it’s all ours.

i drew the pattern in illustrator, printed it, cut it out, sew’d it up… luckily i have the guidance of my wonderful sewing mother, who was there to give me some advice in learning to make these. i had my fears, because i’d never sewn a purse from my very own pattern i’d drawn in illustrator. but, it worked. and it worked well. i’d rock this purse… i’m sure i’ll have a whole collection of them, once i get more designs flowing.

so, zparkleys is now on the road to carrying full size purses.

crafting purses…

i’m so excited to report that i have taken a leap into purse design, not coin purses, already doing that, but actual purses.

it’s taken a few days, and for the first two, we studied patterns, i stared at purses i own, browsed some online sites, and finally, i sketched out the shape i wanted, and fudged a gusset, constructed two of them, testing size and thickness, and i’m so happy to say that my very first, from scratch purse, will be unveiled soon.

just have to finish the lining…
