Party on, people! Today we get to see the super-cute and practical Chunky Wee Bag (in two sizes) by Sam Hunter of Hunter’s Design Studio. (Go enter her giveaway HERE to win some PAINT!) It is the perfect bag for a little girl because it is sort of grown up in its construction (it’s durable and made really well) yet the fabric makes it playful and a great treasure collecting bag…see?
Sam chose my Weave print for her bags and I think it looks just amazing. That print is one of my favorites. The weave pattern goes all the way to one selvage, but then it is raw and ragged at the other selvage and it floats on a periwinkle background. I just love making something from nothing. This print showcases recycling. The texture created by what is essentially trash (trash and paper) becomes rather chic and elegant.

Thank you, Sam! The model loves it! I had to pry it from her fingers for the photo shoot….speaking of the photo shoot…

My photographer, Jill McNamara, amazes me every. single. time. Jill studied photojournalism (a fact I just learned a few months ago after many, many shoots with her–she has done all of my photography for four years for my brand and my family). But once I learned that fact about her, everything made sense. Before that point I couldn’t figure out how there was so much magic in her camera and in her eyes. But now I know that it is not only just magic, but also lots of learned skills and techniques and probably countless hours of Photography Theory and hours and hours of composition and studying light. And most importantly, Jill knows what to look at and how to look at her subject. She is just amazing. So, if you are in the Phoenix, Arizona area and find yourself in need of a photographer for your family pictures, portraits, head shots or brand photography, click over to her website HERE and give her a shout!
Also, Staci Barrett from A Vintage Fairytale made the cutest little quilted bag ever. Ever! I sent her scraps for a prayer flag request (more on that later) and not only did she make an amazing prayer flag with a little patchwork house, but she also made the bag. Thank you, Staci!
