Summer striped hobo bag.

I have so many fun, new things to add to the shop. It sort of keeps piling up. I hope to get the rest up tomorrow night when I can sit down and spend some time adding everything. But, tonight I was too anxious and had to be sure I could get just one new bag in. So, here it is! She is quite lovely.

Summer stripe slouch hobo bag. Get yours, here.

Let’s get this party started.

I’d like to introduce the first full new set of new bags. I did a nice little zippered clutch, a classic everyday hobo bag, and a weekender bag! Because, I like HUGE bags. And I have been wanting to do a weekender for a while. It’s finally here!

All the new bags feature a nice soft vinyl, or faux leather base! Great for keeping clean, if you set your bag down on the floor. Because, who doesn’t?

So, these are the 3 basic styles and sizes for the new line. And, I have more designs to come soon!

Check the out in my Etsy shop.

Re-organizing, rethinking, retrying.

I thought I’d check in with an little update on some of the new stuff I have been working on.

 Tuesdays are my day to work on nothing but sewing, and my Etsy shop, my future business, and creating new designs and what not. They are my favorite days!  So, here in this post you get a peek at what last Tuesday looked like for me! I was extremely productive all day, and am really proud of what’s coming out.

I am really excited to get these bags finished, but I have limited time nowadays, since I have taken on quite a few other things. I am working on another great line of bags with an old friend form high school for a really exciting project that should be revealed soon! As well, as starting a part time job. So, I’m still figuring out how to organise my time so that I do maximize sewing and creating new things!

 I’ll be sure to share more, very soon.


I had a really great weekend. Pretty sad to see it end.

I went on a few bike rides! Ate pancakes, got a tan!!!! Saw a scary movie, and hung out with some friends. Damn near perfect. I am so looking forward to more Summer and Summer-like weekends like this.

All of the STRIPES!

I recently did a bit of treasure hunting and collecting and have compiled a bit of spread of some GORGEOUS and stylish bloggers rockin’ their striped zipper clutches! It’s definitely my most popular bag, and my favorite. It goes with everything! Check out these lovelies and how they have styled theirs…

 I Love Juley’s outfit photos. I feel like I’m looking at my bag in an ACTUAL fashion spread.

Home girl has some serious style.

Such an honor to see these ladies carrying my bag. A couple of my favorite and inspired by bloggers.

See more of Stephanie looking adorable (red jeans and stripes? prefect) here.

See more of Mandy sporting her bag in one of  her Steppin’ Out Saturday post here!

See more of Elsie with her bag in her Daily outfit post titled Red Velvet (!) here.

I so hope I get to do more posts like this. I Love stumbling upon outfit posts that happen to feature a pretty little bag that I remember putting together. I get all warm and fuzzy.

If you have any pics of you carrying your itsKrust bags, please send them my way!


I copied this outfit from Pinterest.

So, I started a new job on Monday. I needed to find something and I’m glad I did. Probably just in the nick of time, too. While I would love to continue to work on my bags full-time, I am not yet profitable enough yet to do so. Obviously, there are bills to be paid, and I like heat, showers, food, and a roof. Oh, and my gym membership! The job I took is fairly part time, so I am OF COURSE, keeping the shop going. Full steam ahead, in fact.

I hope to really ramp things up this year with my shop, even with the job. I’d like to continue to work toward making my passion for sewing and creating my career. I’m more motivated than ever now, actually.  Especially since I had started working on new bags in the last couple months. I am redesigning things and adding new materials and hardware in this larger line. There are more diverse styles (clutches, hobo bags, shoulder bags, and weekenders!) Something for everyone, I hope.

As of now I only have 4 out 16 bags fully completed. With a good amount of prep work done for the next batch of 6. So, I am shooting for a mid-April launch, but maybe I’ll shoot for April 1st, and just release the line gradually… I might go with that. Because, really it’s hard to have the ones done sitting here looking pretty. I really just want to show them off! I’ll share a little peek this weekend.

Back to work. Back to actual outfits everyday. I think I missed having somewhere to really get dressed for.

Shoulder bag by me! My new favorite EVERYTHING bag.

If you haven’t yet, you should check out the SHOP.

I’m quite pleased with how it is looking. Still more to work on, though!

I replaced some of the photos in the shop with some new, shiny, updated photos I have started taking here at the new house. I have a great wall to work with and some lovely daylight. This house get great light! Check out the shop, everything looks so much prettier… At least, I think so.

AND I have a special for everyone!

I want to get pictures of a few more bags that I do not currently have in my inventory. I am going to mark down one of each of the styles I want to re photograph. So, I can snap a photo before I send it it out to you! So, get to the shop to what’s on sale quick and snag up a discounted bag…
