1  A birdy told me... (pic heavy..) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by saintlexi on: January 12, 2008 12:51:54 PM
that birdies make great bags!!!

not like... actual birds.  that would be scary.  but you know... PICTURES of birds...  Cheesy


pockets all over the place, adorable fabric, metallic teal?  seriously what more can you ask for?


detail!


birdies in the zipper pocket toooo!


polkadots!!!  and card slots!!!!!!


action shot.  for those who carry their bags down by the ground.  haha.

i used to work at a place that makes tshirts so i used their technology to make some prints and press them with their big tshirt press things, and from hence came these awesome ipod "tshirts" hehe:














thanks for looking Wink

2  woah look at all those bags :D hehe (pic heavyyy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by saintlexi on: December 30, 2007 06:44:16 PM
taking pictures was frustrating thanks to winter's gray skies.  but here are my latest bags any dang way! Cheesy


first, this was my set up for my show!! Cheesy  i think it looks pretty good!  almost like i meant for everything to work together, but i promise it was totally an accident haha:



and on to the bags!


this is my favorite of this bunch i think!  it is big like i like my bags!  and could be used for books, or even a weekender!  it rules.  to the max.




yay pockets in big bags!  hahaha


Handle the Glow Handbag
this is made out of the most awesome vinyl ever.  when i saw it i loved the color, but when i TOUCHED it i had to have it!!  it is sooo supple and awesome! Cheesy  this shot shows the color the best.  it is metallic teal so its a bit hard to capture the true hue.  Cheesy


did i mention FAUX BOIS HANDLE!?!?!?!  oh yea wood grain!  oh how i love it!


cute little mini-tote... which is half girly and half hardcore!! Cheesy  my kinda bag haha






i love this ocre color!  and it is like an ode to fall and all things awesome.  says me.




liggity-lining!!


oh yea rock that action shot


this is my favorite color.  and there fore.  this bag rules.


oh yea fancy insides Cheesy  just like our bellies!! Cheesy


somehow i am blurry but the bag is not... like i am in the background of an episode of cops but i didn't sign the release but i totally would have but they didn't ask me and it was a high speed chase and so they missed their chance go get that release but not the chance to get me out of the shot.  i love cops.  not as much as i love cheaters tho.  seriously.  i would chase down joey grecco and sign that release and solve my blurry problems. 


shiny stuff is super hard to photograph.  for the realist.  but hey, here we go, best i could get for the time being...  and did i mention YAY SHINY!!!!!!!!!


shhhhhiiiiiiiiiiiii iinnnnnnnnnnnnnnyyy yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy


shiny AND textured! Cheesy in vinyl heaven, i am!




i took like 90 of this shot and this was the best.... i can't wait til summer's sunny days are back.


i loved this fabric and i am super proud of what happened when i started sewing it haha.  Cheesy






off centered, yes.  but blurry, no.  Cheesy yay!

3  Three more to add to the pile... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by saintlexi on: November 18, 2007 06:46:38 AM
Stacking them up, what do you think?




oh yea, that's right, an amazing yellow vinyl paired with a black/white/gray tweed.  i know!  i can hardly contain <i>myself</i> either!


what's that?  bottom details?  i got 'em!


oooh yea, nice view from the back Cheesy


did you say adorable lining?  oh you didn't?  well you should have! Cheesy


my awesome purse brings all the boys to the yard.  no they were there when i got there, trying to skateboard on grass.  what can you do, boys don't really like purses as much as we do, ladies.  now my milkshake... that's a whole nother story.


this vinyl makes me weep with joy.  it is metalic and pretty much amazing.  check out the closer shots below.




see what i mean?  if you need me to run and get you a tissue, i will totally understand.  for real.


and then i was like "lining? i damn near killed her!"  wait what?  wrong joke... shoot.


a special thank you shout out to my jacket which made me look super chunky in this photo... pay attention to the bag of awesome instead kthnx Cheesy


it needed a friend!






the kind of friend who brings money to the party.


and has slots for cards.

10  sunny day purses :) (img hvy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by saintlexi on: August 26, 2007 11:14:21 AM
it is so sunny outside today.  and since it is not a billion degrees for a change, i took the opportunity on this lazy sunday to take some pics of a few more purses, & a wallet for your enjoyment.




i made another Sunshine Blossom Shoulder Bag..




this time with an adorable little stuff pocket for easy to grab things




and a matching wallet..






my camera needed charged to take these pics, so while i waited for it to do so, i made this




the other side




guitar lining, because this purse rocks


trying out a cute little detail "belt"




the lining makes me smile






sweet little cherry blossoms tote








thanks for looking everyone! 

forgive the lack of witty banter... i am picking up my wedding dress today Cheesy so i am preoccupied.  can you believe i am leaving for my wedding exactly ONE MONTH from today?  i am so excited but my body has no idea what to do with the energy so it is turning me all nervous.  i will return soon with funny captions, i promise!  Smiley
