Spring is here with all of the pollen and rain and rain and pollen. Spring is also a time of new beginnings, which means it’s time to take resources and experience to the next level. This accessory collection was to be released over six months ago, however, after having a child, adapting to a new life, household and martial obligations as well as working a full time job it stalled. After all the blood, sweat and tears the Neci LoveHarmon collection is here. This is actually the 5th collection of my custom, eclectic handbags and totes. People always ask what inspires a line of bags. To tell the truth, I have a general idea of the colors I desire then I travel to various shops for fabric and whatever organically speaks to my eye is what I use. The palate includes stone grey, light grey, white , brown, mustard yellow, orange and Ankara prints.
There are four separate looks, the envelope clutch, the oversized clutch bag, the large pouch and the crossbody large tote. We used a variety of different textures including faux leather, upholstery woven fabric, woven leather, cotton prints and Ankara prints. Check out the entire collection here.
I hope that you are inspired by this collection. Through this process I cracked my IPad screen, which was upsetting to say the least, but I am very happy with the finished product. Want to view the entire collection? Check out the Etsy shop here.
Until next time …. create your style!
We’re back! After four months of change we are ready for the upcoming year with many new goals and creative projects. Expect more videos, more online writing and more connecting with other fabulous crafty individuals.
This week we feature the cutest baby ever … Baby Jett. He has been the main reason for the four month change. He is wearing his first DIY bob and bootie set. The white, brown and blue elephant printed cotton bib and bootie set was easy to execute. We have made over 12 sets of these items. We found this pattern in an unknown craft book over nine years ago.
Again, isn’t he the cutest model?
Until next time ….create your style!
It’s been a while hasn’t it. This week we paired a set of happy customers of What’s She Creating? Enterprises. The client on the left carries a brown faux leather printed clutch bag with a wooden circle accent and button. This is a great bag to take on day date excursions.
The client with the handheld tote on the right is working her bag. We constructed this item more than five years ago. This handheld tote is made of a black faux leather yoke and a turquoise, pink, black and gold printed cotton fabric. The handles are ribbon wrapped wooden dowels.
Both clients are extremely satisfied with their purchases and we love satisfying our clients. Why not check our online Etsy shop and order your custom bag today? Click here for the site.

This week a crew neck maxi dress is featured. The inspiration of this knit dress came from an image located online. I loved the black and white checkered print maxi dress in the picture on the right with it’s contrasting orange yoke. I decided to make this maxi dress with a blue contrasting piece and black and white stripes. I found the fabric at Fine Fabrics in Norcross, Georgia. I love this store because of the variety of items at decent prices.
I have made maxi dresses before however, this is one of my favorites. I could wear this dress every day and be extremely happy. The dress is accentuated with handmade earrings made and wrapped with newspaper and gloss and a handcrafted chain link necklace made by What’s She Creating? Enterprises. The model is wearing a black heel and a handmade beaded bracelet.
We hope you enjoyed our designs. We are in the process of creating our own accessory line in the near future!
Until next time ….. create your style!
I am so in love with this DIY purple draped blouse with belt and leggings outfit-of-the-day! Just wanted to leave a short post for the day about these creations.
I was inspired to create this self-draped top after visiting a local women’s boutique. Now can I explain how it was made ….No. I remember just going with what felt right while in my sewing room one afternoon. I know it took a while to create the finishing hems of the garment. I am getting better at this self-drafting pattern thing though. I found this sheer chiffon at Fine Fabrics, a large fabric outlet store in Atlanta, Georgia for a low, low price of course. The top is paired with a pair of black lycra leggings made with Butterick commercial pattern B5788 pattern.
The large purple beaded necklace was created by DCH Designs, a local Atlanta designer. The earrings are made of a glossy paper wrapped bracelet made by us. The colorful printed clutch is our product which can be found in the What’s She Creating? Enterprises Etsy Shop here.
Until next time ….. create your style!
