I've posted the Nimue here before, but I decided to whip out my embroidery attachment and try to use plainer fabrics, but embellish them with embroidery designs.

Thoughts?

Love it! Everything that I've seen you post is just so professional and gorgeous. I really like the shape of the bag. Did you use a pattern or make it up yourself?

I made it up myself Smiley

When I decided to start a handbag business, I ran out and got lots of muslin and lightweight interfacing to make and test patterns with. Many bags died so that this one could be made (*salute*).

I have 3 main bag designs and 1 wristlet design in various sizes now. I'm working on another type of bag that is more utility and uses a zipper closure, that way I can satisfy a range of people instead of just those who are more relaxed about their bag openings.

It can be a pain depending on the machine you have and the kind of thread you use.

I'll only buy Sulky thread to do my embroidery with, and I have to get the Sulky bobbin thread to make sure the embroidery isn't too thick.

My machine has a separate part that attaches to it. It can take about 10-15 minutes just to get it setup. Not to mention my embroidery program and computer hardware has to be reinstalled every time I want to use it, because it wasn't made for the Windows XP era of computing Tongue

Great job on designing your own patterns. I just checked out your website and I love the fact that you named your purses after your cats. I am starting up a Organic Dog Biscuit business and I am naming my treats after my dogs and my friends dogs.

Hehe yeah... see my main website (fiercekitten.com) has been my blog for several years. I didn't have the money to purchase a new domain, so I decided to just do "Fierce Kitten Studio" and use a subsite off of my blog for the studio's website.

I hate coming up with fancy titles for my bags, so I just used the cat names LOL Smiley I have a few more family cats in line, but I grabbed "immediate" family first.

I have a Husqvarna Viking Rose, which at the time cost me $2,000 with all of the bells and whistles thrown in. Of course, I don't have kids to feed either Tongue so I guess it's best to do it while I'm young and unattached eh? Tongue

I use Peltex. I was using Pellon 50 until I bought a little bit of Peltex and made a bag out of it. Now I use Peltex exclusively on my bags (with the exception of the wristlet, which doesn't require interfacing). It's hard to get used to, and it's expensive, but it was worth raising my prices a teensy bit to have that final product be ever so much better.
