How to Add Rivets to Your Handmade Handbags

When I discovered rivets, I instantly fell in love.  Sewing handles for my handbags has never been very enjoyable for me, so the addition of rivets has made the experience a little less stressful.  I always feel like those little rectangles and x's that I make on my bags are so messy.  Rivets eliminates the need for all that stitching over thick material.

A Fun Red Purse by GCC

Red used to be a common staple in my wardrobe, as I was a Nodaway-Holt Trojan and our colors in school were Red and White.  As I was looking through my closet the other day, I realized that my colors have turned a little drab.  I have a lot of gray, browns, and blues.  I like the warm colors, and I guess it fits my personality.  My husband laughs at this fact, since I'm always nagging him about always buying the same colors...brown, blues and greens.  Hmmm...  He finally purchased a red shirt and even an aqua this summer, and I about fell over!  So, my goal is to spruce of my wardrobe a little this summer AND my GCC Concealed Carry Line as well.

A Great 4th of July Tote!

A dear friend of mine gave me this beautiful red, white and blue material during the winter months. She told me to hold on to it until she found the perfect purse for her material.  When she saw the TOTES MA TOTE designed by Emmaline, she knew that was it.  It looks like summer, right? What is really great, is that this material is an indoor/outdoor fabric. Perfect to take the abuse of summer sun and sand. Let's take a look!

My New Concealed Carry Purse Reveal and Coupon Code

Well, friends, I'm so excited to say that June 1st is here and my Etsy Shop is finally reopening!  Yay!!  I don't even know if I told you, but I shut down my shop for a while to catch up on a backlog of bag orders.  Once I finished all my orders, I then had to make a decision as to what to do next.  Do I keep taking custom orders?  Do I stop making concealed carry purses and just make regular handbags?  So many questions and such uncertainty.  Then, after a lot of prayer and counsel from friends and family, I finally made the decision to continue on with my concealed carry business, and not only that, to ONLY make concealed carry purses.
