Mood DIY: Handmade Leather Tool Roll

I recently celebrated another birthday (yipee!), and part of the birthday gift I received from my guy was a personal lesson from the talented creator of Limehouse Leather on how to make my own handmade leather goods — and boy was I excited!   But, with this new …

Mood Style: Little Black Dress

Lately I’ve been obsessed with brocade and embellishments.  Something about brocade is very classic and elegant. Maybe a bit too classic for me so a little leather was necessary to give this beautiful fabric a bit of an edge.  This medium-weight Italian brocade from MoodFabrics.com will make any …

Mood Style: Midi Skirt & Leather Top

One of the freshest, most feminine silhouettes is the midi skirt. These perfect skirts can be worn in the summer as well as the winter, along with a pair of tights and a great pair of boots. My skirt was made with this MoodFabrics.com cotton twill—a medium-weight organic fabric …

Finished: Leather and Rayon Jersey Zip-Front Jacket

Ta daa! The end result of a month-long sewing project that looks nothing like what I had originally planned.

Bottega Veneta-Inspired Tote

 
Spring is finally here and that meant I needed a new tote bag to schlep my shoes and magazines around in. The black leather tote I made a few months ago served me well this past fall and winter, but I was craving something new. My caveats: a bag that …

Mood DIY: Chain Link Heels Inspired by DVF

Designers this Spring/Summer 2013 season are really taking liberties and kicking the shoe detailing into high gear — there’s tons of baubles and chains everywhere.  As usual, I was inspired to create some of my own.  So, when I saw these heels from Diane von Furstenberg with the …

Finished: Bomber Jacket of Leather and Metallic Brocade

Readers, I think I got a little bit carried away with the whole bomber jacket trend. First I made this bomber, then this one, and now here’s my third–AND LAST!–bomber jacket. I really enjoyed sewing the first two versions, but this one I just wanted to be over with. I’m …

Mood DIY: Camo & Leather Foldover Clutch with Tassel

This is my salute to camo — it’s really hot right now! We’ve seen it on runways for DKNY and even Valentino; but, I wanted a functional way to wear it.  You know, an accent piece that I would get more wear out of then say with a …
