Patchwork scarf

One of my clients asked if I could do a custom order for the man in her life. She wanted a a patchwork scarf using the beautiful blue hues.
Well I love doing custom orders. I love the entire process of sorting through my fabrics, selecting the ones that look wonderful together and sewing them up to create a one of a kind piece.
I used navy blue corduroy and a blue stripey fabric. I then teamed them up with some gorgeous Japanese cotton fabrics, that I had been collecting, to come up with this unique design.
I'm posting it out today and will let you know what they think of it in a future post.

Clutch Madness

I purchased some gorgeous pieces of vintage kimono silk recently and couldn't wait to start using them. They were even nicer than I expected and after some consideration I decided to make them into envelope clutches with contrasting fabrics to match.
All handmade and one of a kind.
