It feels like fall is in the air, but we’re ready for it. Check out my new crop of bags, just in time for the Fall season…..
I’m a total doodler, I’m not afraid to admit it. If I’m stuck on hold, I usually doodle something similar to this STITCHED CARBONATION, because you can just kinda start in the corner and work your way out adding as you go.
The STITCHED FOREST makes me think of visiting my Grandmother’s farm, and the time I’ve spent wandering around Stanley Park here in Vancouver. Trees are a favorite theme around here, but I’m really loving the ghostlike qualities of this incarnation.
STITCHED LAVA, reminds me of Science and Nature shows when they show lava flowing and cooling, but sadly without the David Attenbourough narration. It also makes me wonder what I did with my lava lamp….
Art was always my favorite subject in school, so when I started this collection, I wanted it to have a very hand drawn feel. Sometimes I feel like more of an artist than a designer, but most of the time I’m stuck behind the sewing machine, which is why I’ve offered up my STITCHED SKETCHING bag…. see, it all comes full circle eventually.
When I moved to the West End a year ago, I started noticing pigeons, pigeons and more pigeons. I love how they move, how they don’t fly off, but prefer to waddle away. As a tribute to the urban icon, I’m offering this STITCHED PIGEON tote in a very appropriate (and new) shade called Concrete.
For those of you who aren’t sure, allow me to SPELL IT OUT…… I suppose if you’re on here, you already know, but there are people who ask me “What’s an Astrosatchel?” I also love the fact that people may still not get it, and that’s okay. They can buy Coach or something.
PS— If you’ve fallen in love with something here, you can buy it as shown from my online shopping section and have it shipped to your door asap. I’ll be opening the studio Saturday afternoons shortly, for your shopping pleasure as well, please join my mailing list to make sure you hear about all the stuff we’ve got planned for the fall season.
