Custom Purses & Cellphone Pouches

Yesterday, I assembled the last 3 cellphone pouches that I made. All I have left to do on them is to add the chain and the snaps. That's on my list for today.

I did some more stitching on the red hat purse too:

Red Hat Society Lady Purse

I painted the applique, sewed that on and started beading it. Looking at it on the computer, I might move the vintage gold trim down a little bit. I feel like it's too close to the feather stitch which is about the same width. Visually I feel like they compete with each other and I think I can solve that problem by moving it down just a bit.

I'll probably work on this most of the day today. The weather we've been having is making me an absolute crazy person. I feel like Bill Murrey in the Groundhog Day movie. Everyday I wake up and everyday the forecast is the same. It never changes. Cold and snow! I've never mentioned it before but I deal with Seasonal Affective Disorder. I can actually feel the storms and the changes in barometric pressure and it messes terribly with my nervous system. When I feel this way, the only thing I can focus on is stitching.

Janet asked me if this was a cellphone pouch or a purse. This will be a purse, the same style as the White Peacock Purse. I found beaded goldtone handles at Michaels for it and I have some gorgeous red upholstry fabric to use on the back.

I don't know if anyone is interested but I will gladly do custom purses and cellphone pouches. Any theme or any color. I can use photos too like I did with the vintage image of my grandfather. Feel free to email me if you'd like a custom project.

Very sorry to hear about the weather getting to you, Pam. We have winters here that are like that: rain EVERY single day, for weeks and months.
One morning during a record breaking year for rainfall, when I was going completely mad I decided the thing to do was go down into town to the hairdressers and get a new hairdo...what was so funny was that the place was jammed, the windows steamed up with crazy women who had the same idea as me.
Creating beautiful stitching is a much better coping mechanism!

I like the way the painting turned out on the lace, and the SRE on the hat. The gold lace doesn't bother me where it is, but a little space between the two won't bother me, either. I just love the feather stitching. You have hundreds of examples of that for tast this week. =)

You really need to move to Phoenix, Tucson, or San Diego. =)

Its looking good. Though I agree about the vintage lace. I don't know where my eyes are suppose to go.

The weather here sucks too and my girls have shared their cold with me too.
