It's incredible how the clutches have taken off...and now totes! Oh my.
I was in a little over my head. Who better to save the day than my mom!
I learned to sew from my mother, but even more than how to sew I learned how to have a critical eye and the notion that anything that you can imagine you can probably create yourself.
I remember as a young teenage girl wanting to have a dress for a formal at school and thinking, "I don't want to look like everyone else."
Luckily, I had a mother who could create beautiful three dimensional, wearable things from flat pieces of lifeless fabric. It was amazing to me how she did it. We would start with a pattern, but by the end the pattern had been modified and customized to fit not only our imagination, but my petite 5'2" frame perfectly.
So this past week I called my mom for help. I needed to get handbags made fast, but no detail could be overlooked. I knew she would be amazing as she has always been.
In one day we produced 4 totes, each unique, and each perfectly, expertly sewn by my mom!
Thanks mom. You are still the head seamstress in this operation and the greatest inspiration in my life.
website soon to see the results of the photo shoot at Alladale Farm and to buy...so exciting!
