Friday is here again, and this time, funnily enough, it does mean the weekend for me too!
This weekend I'm gonna run away to the cottage, where I expect I'll be taking loads of pics and playing with Miss Cinnamon, but I'm leaving all you ladies with a blog entry to ready and a gorgeous bag to ogle at!
I met the talented Cheri of StellarCheri through my favourite forum for crafters and handmade lovers, Attack of the Craft! She's been making clothes and accessories for years, and I've been wanting to get one of her pieces for a while, but when I saw her Green Spiderwebs purse... I knew it had to be mine!
Not only is super stylish (or so all my co-workers thought last Friday when they saw it) and very Halloween-y but also is green! I have a serious lack of green accessories in my wardrobe, so a green purse was a must! And no, you're not allowed to ask how many bags and purses I already own... trust me, it's better this way!
The green fabric is an absolutely gorgeous shade, but a lil difficult for my camera to depict true to colour, so after quite some tweaking, the photos do show two shades of green *sigh*. The spiderwebs mesh is overlayed the green fabric, but somehow Cheri managed to do in such a way that it seems just one fabric!
It's not a big purse, it's the perfect size for shoulder purse to go out, with a magnetic snap closing, and zippered pocket, ideal for the keys and phone. Not bulky but quite roomy, cause I took it to work on Friday and I went out for dinner and movie with my bff, and I packed: wallet, phone, sunglasses case, cards pouch, work's ID, car keys with home keys, and the keys for work and my Tokyotombola apple cover!
If you've fallen in love with this gorgeous purse, there's still one available in her shop, in Royal Blue (hurry before I decide I need that one, since Royal Blue is my fave colour!) or you can always ask Cheri to make you a custom one! She made a purple one for Deb of OnCupcakeMoon that was to die for!
cheri is awesome! she has made me 3 custom things now - the purple spiderweb purse, a striped wristlet pouch and a damask wristlet purse. she's got some great construction skills and she's FAST at completing orders! i second pili in telling you to go check out her shop!!!! =)ReplyDelete
WOW. that purse is GORGEOUS!!!!ReplyDelete
looking forward to photos from the cottage- have fun this weekend! :)
<3 <3 Pili! Thank you so much!ReplyDelete
So sorry about the the crease in the middle of the purse, i need to find a way to fit my bigger bags in the envelopes without making that crease!
I'm so glad you love it!! thanks again for the blog and for your support!
that bag is gorgeous, as was Deb's :DReplyDelete
I love it!! The green is amazing - one of my favorite colors too :)ReplyDelete
Off to check out her shop!
Have a wonderful Sunday.
I am in LOVE with this purse!! Your taste must be very close to mine, because I always end up wanting to buy stuff when I come to your blog. I've got it bad this time! If she made one in purple, it would be a done deal right now.ReplyDelete
Also, this part:
"And no, you're not allowed to ask how many bags and purses I already own... trust me, it's better this way!"
