I was excited to be asked by my lovely friend Giovanna Lever, to make a little red clutch for her. I created Betty Bow and sent her off this week.
Here is her story:
"Betty Bow started life as a gorgeous red party frock but soon the invitations dried up and she was left alone at the back of the closet. Now that she has been trimmed with some cute vintage fabric and completely ‘rejenenerated’ into a clutch with attitude, she is longing to get back on the party scene! Beware: Betty loves to be the centre of attention so is not recommended for wallflowers…"
I am currently working on a number of clutches and will post them shortly...watch this space!
The lovley Giv has her own business called GivandTake which has been featured in Sydney Morning Hearld's Good Living and is currently being featured in Notebook magazine. Check her out on page 59!
Or head to her website givandtake.com to check out all the delicious home made treats she makes - many of which are traditional Italian recipes passed down through the generations of her family.
Giv will be making the desserts for our upcoming wedding too so our guests are in for a real treat!!
My favourite are her Pasta di Mandorle - truly the most delicious treat I have ever had! Keep up the tasty work Giv :)
Hi. I’m Jennie Smith.
I like recycling. I like trying to preserve our amazing planet too.
I also like designing and wearing pretty things.
Unfortunately these interests are often contradictory.
So...I created ‘Rejenerate’. Just so I could, you know, get all my interests on the same page.
Now I spend most of my time hunting down vintage fabrics, pre-loved clothes, unloved curtains and recycled bits and pieces and upcycling them into lovely new handbags and fashion accessories.
That way I can still sleep at night if I have the urge to accessorise each outfit with a different handbag.
And so can you.
