Secret to my success.
This week end I went supply shopping. I hear there is a snow storm coming my way so I plan on staying inside all week, fantasizing about a tropical island and making lots of new stuff for Spring.
On my shopping list....
• Transparent base and dye. Used to print all my canvas. I mix all my own dye so I can get the exact colour I have in mind.
• Double sided tape. I can't live with out this. When I first started making handbags I used glue to hold pieces in place until they were sewn. I quickly realized that the glue was killing brain cells and who wants to buy a bag filled with glue anyway? So I switch to double sided tape. It can get a little pricey but it's worth it.
• Zippers. Using these for interior pockets in each bag
