I've finally broken down and officially released the new prints for "Design Your Own" handbags. They are fine Japanese home decor weight fabrics that have of course received our special treatment for the backing. And, here they are in all their glory...
Cherry Blossoms, Hibiscus, Tea Time, Blue Poppy, Sweet Dreams and In Flight
You probably noticed that I released the Millie Fleur for pre-orders. We will be shipping them in about two weeks and already have a bunch of orders from both stores and individuals.
Millie is a large girl... Although my grannie, Millie, was a little lady. This bag is about 16" across and 12" high with a 20"x 5" round base. It features a drawstring and magnetic closures. There are tons of pockets and it comes with a key fob... which all of our bags will come with very soon.
Another big bag that has been added to the line is the Betty Weekender, named for my mother who was not pleased with a tiny cell phone cover named for her. I've actually removed the cell cover from the line as all of my bags have that outside pocket for your cell. My mom, btw, is also a very little lady at just around five feet so it's funny that the largest bag in the line is named for her... that's for all the love you have, Mom... You had to have a bag big enough. :)
The Betty Weekender is a whopping 20" wide and 14" tall with a 5" wide base. Muchachas... she's B.I.G. big.
Just to give you and idea... if she was a lady her butt would not fit in this big arm chair... She'd have to turn to the side. (I'm thinking I'm so funny right now)... Is that not politically correct? I didn't say fat. I wanted to say fatty, but that just doesn't seem right. I've got a big butt myself. The girls and I were just singing the big butt song last night. I had them cracking up dancing around the kitchen in my pajamas. One of them had said something about my voluptuous tush, and I broke out in song. (Ok, now I'm really laughing at myself). But, wow, I have digressed... I know I showed you before. My memory hasn't completely broken down, but you didn't really get to see her S.I.Z.E.
So without further adieu, here's The Fabtabulously Large Betty Weekender...
And again here wearing my mother's wedding gown. Or is my mother's gown wearing her? Whatever! She's a beaut! Oh, and she's got on some of Jennifer Pagenelli's Sis Boom Line. Gorgeous, Jennifer! Also, you should know that I am shipping this girl (and a couple others) off to Elizabeth at Daphne's Cottage. You can get this one right away from her. The pages on her site are not yet shopping enabled, so call her. If you call her and it's gone, just go to my "design your own page". We'll get you one a.s.a.p.
