Fabric Artistry

Lately I've enjoyed working with batik fabric.

It blends well with
old & new textiles.

This fall look for this modern fabric and how it is used.

Always looking for interesting textiles.


Finished product...
See you at Junk Bonanza in September 2015!

A NEW look for the crossbody style handbag
premiering at JUNK BONANZA this fall 2015

No two are alike...

So many choices!

This handbag has 2 generously sized pockets 
located on the interior and exterior - 
occasionally they are both on the interior 
because sometimes, great fabric patterns must not be interrupted.

The upper edge of the bag has a zip closure,
and each strap features leather accent detailing at the shoulder .

No matter what your style is,

classic to vintage to modern

"Mary Jeans"
has many handbags for you to choose from!

p.s.  this bag comes in 2 sizes

Sneak Peak - Junk Bonanza

For the upcoming Fall Junk Bonanza event I've been focused on creating products which blend vintage and modern textiles.

By pairing my collection of select vintage textiles with modern patterns, 
I seek to create products with a unique aesthetic and
to showcase a sample of the great artistry of a bygone time in textile production.

Natural vintage textiles are durable,
as well as rich to the touch and in how they handle.

Please stop by my booth once again this year to enjoy
the unique textiles, patterns and colors featured in
Mary Jeans  pillows, handbags, and more.

So many ideas...
So little time...

Keep on creating!!!
