Haute Handbags Magazine!

I'm in the current issue of Haute Handbags!! These are the artsy purses I make from used jeans I get from the Goodwill in our town. Beautifully faded is far better than buying new denim from JoAnn's, don't you think?

Polymer Buttons for Embellishing

It was a cloudy, cold day yesterday, so I needed a fun, easy project to lift my spirits. I rolled out the Fimo on the kitchen counter, pressed with rubber stamps, and used a BBQ skewer for the buttonholes. After baking and cooling the buttons, I gently swiped them with a soft sponge with just a bit of acrylic craft paint. It added enough color to contrast with the clay-colored Fimo and bring out the stamped texture.
