This shop is full of color and amazing work each item is made with care and love and it shows with every piece. Each item is quality made and the colors are absolutely amazing. They are so rich and vivid. The item pictured left Is called The Quilted Clutch in Red Flowers. She describes it as "This little clutch is such a great purse. It is the perfect size for those days that you just cannot be bothered with a big bulky bag. The outer fabric is a red flowered cotton print. I quilted this fabric to give it a little more pizzazz. The clutch opens up to a lining in a coordinating blue cotton fabric. The clutch closes a magnetic snap. The fabrics used in this purse are 100% cotton."
This is what she has to say about her shop, "Just one girl and a very loved sewing machine -- that is all there is to Banana Showcase. I have been a crafter since I was a very little girl. I love to make things with my hands and now having people use the things I make is so exciting. I have sewn since I was a teen but recently discovered that purses are so fun to create. I also love visiting thrift stores so you will find that some of my bags are created from vintage fabrics or other vintage clothing items that have been repurposed to become purses.
I will do custom orders, so feel free to contact me and we'll talk!!"
This item is my Favorite in her shop! I am so in love with the colors, the fabric, and the embroidery! It is called The Messenger bag in Teal Courderoy with Turquoise Flowers, she describes it as, "This is a great bag that will definitely keep you organized and hold just about anything you need to tote around with you. This bag is made from a rich teal corduroy fabric. It has turquoise and khaki flowers embroidered all over it. The lining of the bag is a coordinating cotton fabric in turquoise. There is an inside pocket that is divided into sections with one being a pen holder. The strap is attached to the bag with silver metal rings and should be long enough for most to wear across their body.
The front flap stays closed with a magnetic snap. The purse has layer of heavy duty interfacing to maintain its shape. The strap is made from four layers of fabric and has a layer of interfacing inside. The strap is triple stitched onto the bag for durability"
