I know I've written before about custom work I've done. Here's a little bit of what I've been working on lately:
Just last week, someone emailed me asking about ordering a custom clutch and matching wristlet. She wanted a clutch for her sister, and the wristlet for herself. She specifically asked for fabric with a bird-related print. I took a trip to JoAnn's Fabrics and gave her a selection to choose from. This was the result!
Our family friend is a makeup artist and ordered a roll for her makeup brushes. I had made a DSLR camera bag for a friend (no decent pictures of that one), so I copied some of the techniques from that and used them for the brush roll.
A former coworker of mine saw my zebra clutch and asked for the same model in leopard print. I love the way this piece came out. It's perfect.
And finally, around Christmas, I had an order for a Zelda-themed wristlet from Ilana Mele of Duchessa Originals and founder of Handmade Long Island. The wristlet was for her niece. This was my first attempt at applique, and I don't think it turned out that bad!
I love designing pieces with customers. What I would love is to get another order for bridesmaid gifts. That was fun. If you're interested in working with me on something custom, feel free to email me!
