The Buttercup Bag

I just intended to make a gift for my sister - a little something to say, "Hey, married lady." But I had such a good time, I made a few more. In the days leading up to my sister's wedding, I showed them to some of my very supportive relatives who encouraged me to sell my wares....

The Buttercup Bag (featured above) was designed by Rae Hoekstra of Made By Rae and is used with permission. Rae is a very talented designer and lovely human being - you can learn more about her at MadebyRae.

Currently, my bags are available at Riverstone Massage Therapy in Saskatoon or by contacting me. The great part about going to Riverstone is you can grab a massage and a pedicure while you "think deeply" about which bag you'd like to make your own. I have not opened a shop on Etsy yet, but we'll see how the next few weeks go.

The bag above is on its way to Port Coquitlam, BC, to one of those fabulously supportive family members.

I also have some ideas bubbling in my mind for some other designs so I'll keep you posted when I get the prototypes (heehee- that word always makes me giggle for some reason) hammered out.

Have a sunshine filled day!

Who doesn't love comments? I appreciate every single one and try to reply to each. Unless you're a no-reply commenter. Then I can't. And I have a little sad moment. Like a dropped ice cream cone. So if you're a no-reply commenter and have a question, check the comment thread and I'll try to reply there. :-)
