Heirloom Gifts


Gold denim, all done by hand. A lovely wallet, destined to be an heirloom.
Black felt applique. Cotton lining.

“I am in Captiva and I’m embroidering. What I think I am doing is making gifts, for birthdays or Christmas. If someone wanted to buy one would I sell it? Maybe, but see the thing is....embroidery takes tons of time and if you are going to sell it and actually make $$$ for your time, the price would be very high. However, if you give it as a gift, the recipient can know and appreciate the effort that goes into their beautiful clutch or zipper bag. It can be something that they cherish and use for the rest of their lives, and they will think of me from time to time.

So, I’m posting it here on Etsy—-because Etsy is my website. And I’m not worried about selling something I don’t have because I never sell anything on Etsy anyway.”
