Remember my friend that asked me to make a Rasta Nebraska purse for her? Well, she just loved her new fun and funky bag, and apparently so did her cousin! So much that my friend asked if I could do something similar – the same color scheme but something that would show her love for pit bulls.

And then, it was Christmas, then New Year’s, then Valentine’s Day, then it was March. I wasn’t under any time constraints, so I was really waiting for the right inspiration.

I am very happy to take custom orders if you have an idea, a color scheme, or even if you’re hanging on to an old piece of material that you just don’t know what to do with! Of course, if you need something done in less than three months, I’ll make time Click the Contact link at the top of the page and give me a buzz!
