Item of the day!

Today I'm featuring a Canadian seamstress: SewMo. She's from Toronto, so that's really close to home for me. I was specifically looking for a Canadian today, and what drew me to this shop was the fact that Mo tries to use up-cycled materials as much as possible. So not only do you get a great bag, wallet or accessory, you're being kind to the environment too!! Every time you sling that purse over your shoulder, you can give yourself a pat on the back at the same time: you're doing your part!!

The first item that caught my attention was this cute, Simple Wallet. I just love the polka-dot pattern! And of course, who doesn't need another little pouch to hold money, change, credit cards, coupons or those feminine products you don't want falling out of your bag as you root around for a pen or your sunglasses. As you can see, it would also hold business cards quite nicely, so they could always be on hand.
The next item to catch my fancy? This delightful little Checked clutch purse / wristlet. The pattern is so cheery and fun! It's a perfect size for bringing the essentials to school, work or a night on the town. And it can be machine washed, for anyone who gets a little sloppy now and again (who doesn't?)!
And while you're at it, why not get three matching magnets? The pattern is irresistible! Hop on over to SewMo, there's a lot more in store - like that pretty pin cushion you'll recognize in her store banner and also on her blog: Check it out!!!
