World's next top model

I enjoy what I do but when I have a model this handsome I absolutely love my work! Take a look at him:

Is he the cutest or what?

But making the item as cute as him? Took some head-scratching before I got it started. I really wanted the bag to be adorable yet usable and yes, it was a challenge with a this star-model. Then I just crabbed my needle and started poking...

I think the bag turned out quite cute (read: oh boy how handsome), and I think he approves, too!

Kisses to the cutest and happy Tuesday!

Thanks Kerry,

The owner of the bag was happy - and I think the model himself smiles at the last photo, too ;)

Happy Tuesday!

I think from that last photo that your model looks pretty pleased with his likeness! Your work is amazing and inspiring. Whenever I see photos of your new work I have to stop and look again.
Happy Tuesday and I'm glad to say winter is gone and summer is on it's way here in Sydney! YAY!

Wow Mia, that is a very, very clever bag.It is also a most gorgeous shade of blue. Helen is obviously over the moon with her bag and no doubt her Billy is as adorable as my Billy (the cat!).
You are a very clever designer and I love the little bird looking down at Billy too! Great to show us.
Love Jane x

Hi Trixi,

Thank you for the nicest comment! and you're about to enjoy the summer there, wow, we just had ours (well some months ago. Thank you so much for having a look at my shop too :)

Happy Tuesday!

Dear Helen,

Give Billy million kisses from me (and the other ladies here too who fell in love with him immediately) and happy week to all of you from sunny yet cold Finland!


Mia said...

Hi Jane,

Thank you so much for your nice comment again! And there must be something about name "Billy" - they're all gorgeous ;) Kisses to yours from cold yet beautifully colored Finland!

Bravo Mia!!!The bag is fantastic and the dog is soooo adorable. I love black and white dogs.

Thank you for sharing this new purse. Everyone will want a cool purse with their dog on it.

Happy Tuesday!

that's awesome - you should do commissions

Mia said...

Thank you so much, Anne!

I am so happy you liked the bag! I am sticking to my beloved birdies :) but every now and then it's great to do something else too!

Have a wonderful week and many happy greetings from Finland!


Mia said...

Hi periwinkle,

Glad you liked the bag! And as I said to Anne, I think I'll keep making my birdies mostly but if someone asks nicely (and if the model is this handsome) - I just might say yes :)

Have a great week!


Mia said...

Thank you so much, Viv!

I liked how the bag turned out, too and if I ever considered having a dog, I know where to look at, a Boston terrier it would be!

Have a lovely week too!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
