Important Paper Holder

31 Dec

After racking my  brain for a gift for the boy who has it all, I came up with this. I wrapped a binder in leather and used a cool vintage lining for the inside. That way he has a place to keep all his important papers.

Here are a few random fashion show pictures. See all the pictures here. HUGE thanks to Justin Mitchener for taking all the photos!

I went outside and found those twigs for the model’s hair.

I really wanted a red head because of Holly in Badlands. Isn’t Katie to die for?

Well, all my models were fucking gorgeous.

That blue plaid wallet is now at Edge of Urge and the other one was sold.

Courtney posted this line up for the models and bags. Thank goodness.  I just don’t think of things like that.

Intense looks.

(I look so much shorter than the models.)

Loved that wallet.

Cross clutch!!

This was the first bag I made for the show.

I can’t thank my friends and family enough for their  help and support!

Merry Wonky Christmas!!

I tried to make my mom some mittens from this old sweater for Christmas. They turned out a little weird, but she loves me unconditionally and has to like them because I’m her offspring. It’s the thought that counts anyway, right?

Exactly one week until the show. Bits and pieces of bags still need to be sewn to their better halves. Now, I just need my better halves to come give me the motivation to sew all these bags.

I just like this picture. Pink nerds in my fabric weight.

I really love these shoes. I fell in love with them maybe a year ago? But someone just recently gifted me a pair. (THANK YOU!) Each shoe is handmade in Guatemala and then signed by the artisan who crafted it. How uniquely beautiful is that!?

Here’s my flyer for the show! I tried to do it all myself and then I gave up and called the great Justin Mitchener. The glitter is all me.

Only 15 days until the FLOW holiday fashion and trunk show, where I rubyassata will have my very first fashion show. I couldn’t be more overwhelmed. I’m just living and breathing bags at this point.  Here’s the latest. . .

It looks similar to other hobos I have made but the opening is 6 inches smaller. Making for a sleeker and more compact bag.

Sweet lill bow convertible clutch.

Matching linings! How cute!
