My Inner 8 Year Old

Image

So I had someone say the other day “You have 2 boys and you make purses?”
I actually started making purses long before my boys came along. And I realized I make these purses for my Inner 8 year old.

I loved taking toys with me, things to keep myself busy when I was a kid. The first purse I made I thought WOW I would’ve loved this when I was a kid, I would’ve packed in a couple of toys in my Mom like purse.

So every time I make a purse I think what would I love! I make my purses fun, bright, whimsical, sometimes more serious, less girly. And when I make one, I’m instantly 8 again, thinking I would’ve loved this purse to go with this outfit, or shoes, or this one would’ve fit my barbies, and book and wallet.

I look at my Yarn shelf and I get really excited mixing the colors in my mind. I get an image of what the purse will look like when it’s done. Sometime’s it turns out better, like my sunburst purse up top. So thrilled that one turned out beautiful.

I constantly get to play with my imagination and make things that I love. And the best is when I give or sell a purse and I hear, My daughter never puts it down, everything goes into it, she loves it. That just fills me with such happiness and inspires me to make more.

  1. But why shouldn’t we make these things if we have boys? I love my sons, I happily knit things for my sons, but there’s no way I’d stop knitting feminine things too. Love your purses.
