i thought i'd post a little pic of a few things i've made so far at my new job at u-handbag
i'm getting to know all of the kits and frames we sell at the moment, so am spending a lot of time reading through patterns and making up little samples like the two pictured.
the stripey box clutch is so cute, i'm a little gutted i've made it at the end of the summer coz i think it's perfect for summer nights! the fortune cookie purse on the right is amazingly designed, it holds so much more than you think it would and i'm contemplating making some as little make up bags for presents- cute right?!

if you ever want to learn how to make purses/bags or need anything bag making related, i would hands down recommend u-handbag. now obviously that is going to sound totally biased as i work there, but i used to buy so many of the things we sell on ebay thinking i was getting a bargain, when actually, u-handbag are usually cheaper (plus you won't have to wait ages for postage!).

so there we have it, a little insight into my work life at the moment; what do you think? is purse/bag making something you'd like to try?


  1. I would love to make a tweed handbag. Unfortunately, sewing is not my forte. Sigh.

  2. Wow,well done Skye these are amazing!!I'd love to try,unfortunately I don't have access to a sewing machine anymore and my sewing skills aren't up to parr!xx

  3. Neato~ that's so amazing that you made both of those!!

  4. These look great especially love the striped one :) x

  5. wow these are amazing! I'd love to be able to make something like that xx

  6. These are both gorgeous, love the little striped one. Wish I could make something like that! xoxo

  7. They're so cuuuuuute, I'm definitely going to have to have a go at making stuff like this.
    Also, I really like your blog name, it made me smile.
