Giving New Life to Old Luxury Bags
I'm back with another one for you.
It's been a minute since I posted but better late than never.
I moved back to my hometown and in the mist of getting myself situated, I lost my Mo-Jo.
She's back and I have so many projects to show you, we can create together and actually seeing me in the garments I've made. I'm so critical of myself that I freeze at the moment of pictures of myself in them. But hold on wait minute, I'll be 50 in October and I am a grown ass woman and I will not let my fear get the best of me and I'm Shining!!!
Her name is Lou-Mes....
She's a hybrid, of course.
She's so petite and classic.
I've always wanted a Hermes but who doesn't right.
I just can't see myself paying $5000 and up for a purse.
I keep all of my old and beat up purses because of it's hardware and fabric.
Yes, I'm a hoarded like that.
I wanted to test out an old Hermes pattern I downloaded online since the pandemic started. Using my sewing machine and 18/110 needles, she came to life.
