Shop Update! Carmen Handbags


❤️ Carmen Handbags❤️
do you like poppies? 

..

 Carmen Handbag
with Round Handle








..









Meet Carmen, my new One-of-a-kind red handbag featuring 
a Poppy Flower Doll Face with vintage Handles.


“I knew I had to make some beautiful bags with that lovely Red mesh fabric I found in summer. It reminds me of the old Spanish window lattices, carnations, and poppy flowers… It matched perfectly with the cream vintage handles that I kept from a long ago. Poppy flower dolls cheered it up with her smiling faces and then… I realized that Carmen as the best name for this very limited and unique collection.”
..

These are the two mini tote bags I made from a beautiful red mesh, 
a cute lightweight fabric that is also sturdy and resistant. 
I sewed and assembled it, it's reinforced with double seams. 
They both come with two round comfortable vintage plastic handles 
in a cream/bone white color.
Used some Black Velvet and Felt, 
as petals, 
to decorate the embroidered Poppy flowers 

Perfect for everyday essentials. 
You can carry a wallet, phone, make-up, keys… 
for city walks and nights out. 
for any crafter or sewing enthusiast.
They make an original and cute gift. 
Enjoy! 🌺 ❤️

New SECRET KEEPER Bags!










✨  NEW Summer Secret Keeper Bag Collection in gingham silk fabric! 
Four different colors, with smiling chubby chick faces. Which one is your favorite?
One Of a Kind Kiss Lock Clutch Bag with Beads and Golden Chain


A collection of girly vintage Art Bags inspired by Big Eye dolls and Twiggy, featuring a very sixties doll face stitched on the front and two legs hanging from the bottom bag.


Besides holding the essentials to go for an evening walk as a small phone, keys, lipstick, coins purse… And as the collection name says, these mini bags are created to keep all your little secrets, thoughts, or wishes.
There’s an inside pocket containing a blank notecard for filling in with secrets, and another notecard for you to choose from different occasions: Happy Birthday, Happy Xmas, or a Love greeting card.
They made the cutest envelope for sending a love message or the most original greeting!
It will be a really cute handmade unique and personalized gift.

This small clutch purse is made from gingham silk fabrics and faux fur legs. I added a vintage-styled plastic frame with sewing holes and clip clasp, it was hand sewn by me directly to the bag.
 It comes with a fancy golden metal chain and plastic beads that look like candies.
You can hang it on your shoulder or wear it comfortably crossed.


Doll Face


The big-eyed smiling doll face has felt hair, wears two pompoms cherry earrings, and a tiny felt bow on the top of her head. I embroidered her face carefully, stitched a sheepish smile, and two big black eyes. I chose two felt circles for her chubby cheeks that brighten her face. Stuffed with polyfill. 
 
Personalize your secret keeper clutch
Check the last photo to choose your extra notecard.
Includes a gift tag (From/ To fields), a blank notecard for filling in with secrets and an extra notecard for you to choose from different occasions: Happy Birthday, Happy Xmas or a Love greeting card.

Wool Rug for Kids - RUUUGS. Colaboración con Tashka Rugs






Hello! Hope you are well and safe 💚
Even on these tough days, there are good things happening that make my heart dance for a while and keep me dreaming on better days! 💓
Here is the new RUUUG, my collaboration with the amazing project of @tashkarugs and their children's rug collection. I’m so happy to see my design on these beautiful artisan rugs…
Each rug tells a story about the people who made them: This rug was designed by me and hand woven by Hanan, Fatima and Zahra. 🌿

Ruuugs create products made in an ethical and traditional way and connects the technique of the artisan women from Morocco with the creativity of designers and artists from around the world.
Pay a visit to @tashkarugs to know more about this great project and the making process of the rugs ☺️ 🌼
You can read on their website the interview they did to me.
Made of 100% wool, they can be hung as a picture on the wall or also, as soft and fluffy carpets, decorate rooms or playrooms for children. This RUUUG is 90cm x 70cm. But It can also be done in a larger size 140cm x 70cm.
Ruuugs are made specially for each of you and are produced by demand. Due to the artisanal nature of this product, the time of preparation of your order can be 4 to 5 weeks.
👉Available on pre-order from @tashkarugs,  or in the store @muima__
