FAM Friday Feature ~~ GardenCris27

Bags, Pouches and Aprons ~~

Today's FAM (Fabulous Artistic Moms) feature showcases some of Carissa Black's fantastic pouches. Her work is fabulous and is appealing to young and (ahem) slightly older women. I know because I bought one a while back for myself, but when it arrived in the mail, my 18 year old daughter talked me into giving it to her! Her stitiching is impeccible and her fabric choices are amazing.

From her profile:

"I started sewing, as most people did, as a kid in home economics. I hated it! I hated following a pattern and I hated following directions. I wanted to do it my way, my way was better! What got me into trouble then, has helped me to grow a successful business. I never use patterns and love to come up with new designs. I am also the mom of two, very active, little boys. On the weekends, I am an intensive care unit nurse. I love my sewing as it gives me a wonderful outlet for creativitiy. I also think every woman and mom should have something that they do just for them and no one else."
