Beware if you buy this item! After your friends see one of them getting it...they will all want one! These are SO cute and fun...best gift I have bought in a long time!

About

The Mother of Invention

A few years ago when my son was getting married, I needed a purse to match my dress. I wanted something small but the right size to carry just the necessities. A purse that would slide comfortably on to my wrist so that I could eat, drink and be merry hands-free! When my friends saw what I had designed they all wanted one. Two months later I was off sewing and selling. I have sold over 1000 purses since then. Since I use some vintage fabrics, I have even made purses from my customers old family wedding dresses. One customer needed a special color to match a cruise ship dinner dress. Many of my purses are used for special occasions, charity events, weddings, travel and every day.
I have added up-cycled toddler dresses from old pieces of embroidery, pillow cases, table cloths and dresser scarves.
Currently I am having fun using my antique orphaned earrings on fur wine bottle stoles.

    I have loved to sew since Aunt Margaret taught me how at age 10. My love of vintage fabrics came from my Grandmother with her fine eye for color and quality. Using antique pieces of embroidery is the ultimate in recycling.

I love to sew and use vintage items or fabrics. From wine stoles, little girl vintage dresses or wrist purse, I design each item as one of a kind. I first designed my wrist purse for my son's wedding in June. I wanted a custom purse that I didn't have to hold, clutch or strap on. The purse was perfect. It held my belongings (a cellphone, small wallet, keys and other essentials); and it stayed on my wrist all night while I socialized, dined and danced. I received so many compliments and requests for orders that here we are on Etsy. This purse uses a unique system of two interlocking straps that hang on your wrist (clutch free). The straps are very comfortable. The purse is handmade and fully lined.
