AMAZING and super colorful "Viva La Mexico" Dia de los Muertos heart shaped retro style handbag purse in a nice BIG roomy 12.5 inch x 3 in deep size, in a wonderful, fine Dia de los Muertos style vintage print substantial weight cotton fabric printed with colorful sugar skull/fiesta imagery, and lavished with a center handsewn appliqued custom printed picture of renowned Mexican artist Frida Kahlo framed with a cascade of colorful handmade ribbonwork flowers and antique crocheted trims, plus rainbow-colored super sparkly rhinestone accents scattered over the front of the bag as well. This is part of my NEW original bag collection that I'm debuting---all full size, super-roomy handbags; beautifully sewn with coordinating inset piping and handsewn bias inner binding; heavy duty brass zippers; fully lined with pockets; handmade glitter vinyl jeweled coordinating detachable straps; solid brass hardware; each bag with the bonus of detachable gorgeous jeweled matching charms/dangles (since I'm also a jewelry artist)! Though I've been making purses and bags for decades now, I wanted to create some "everyday" ones that are not only couture-tailored and professionally sewn, but also each with its own original theme and very utilitarian as well. This ready-to-ship-immediately beauty is very sturdy, is fully lined in coordinating fabric and has an inner pocket plus a glitter vinyl strap that's detachable; all created by me from my own custom designed pattern. So perfect for a gift for that someone "who has everything" or who loves retro, vintage, Rockabilly, Lolita or Kawaii style......this is very unique, exclusive and it's not only very useful, it's beautifully made. Last photo shows some of the other heart shaped bags I'm listing so do be sure to view them all!

I love antique and vintage clothing and have collected it for years, as well as having a longtime design career including doing costume & restoration work for major movie studios and museums....Am now translating that love to my own contemporary creations and using all the fine extraordinary antique and vintage materials, laces, trims, beads etc that I've collected for more than 30 years in these wonderful wearable pieces....along with the finest of hand sewing and one of a kind details. Everything I create is individually hand made solely by me and has the very best of my carefully hoarded private stash of superb vintage and antique accents (I use ONLY vintage materials that are in pristine, freshly-cleaned condition---no deteriorating, too-aged or fragile pieces EVER) plus the finest of modern silks, cottons and wools that I can find.....resulting in a fabulous truly authentic vintage look piece. Impeccable professional workmanship and design are the hallmarks here.
This incredible bag, entirely handmade by me, has a wonderful traditional Mexican/Dia de los Muertos theme with a super charming fabric of black with brilliantly multicolored sugar skulls and fiesta motifs, scattered all over with sparkling, glittering rainbow rhinestones. On the front I've handsewn a large portrait of Frida Kahlo, my favorite artist, framed in beautiful antique crochet lace and handmade colorful ribbonwork flowers. Hot pink piping outlines the heart shape of the front and back of the purse; has a substantial brass zipper; detachable custom made strap is a vivid iridescent hot pink glitter vinyl and features double sewn end reinforcements that are further secured with clamped-on brass filigree braces ornamented with a vintage turquoise fire opal glass brass-set oval cabochon on each. Antiqued brass hardware/detachable swivel clasps plus a fantastic double-dangle charm of Mexican "sugar skull" charms in hot pink, turquoise and ivory with a vintage turquoise glass cabochon as well.....has a lobster claw clasp so you can detach it and put it on the zipper pull, the bag hardware or even wear it as a separate pendant if you wish. All of the inner seams of the bag are covered and hand finished in black handsewn bias binding and it has coordinating lining in a turquoise dot pattern, as well as a deep inner pocket.
