WhatTheCraft Handmade Giveaway – SmarmyClothes purse

This week’s WhatTheCraft Giveaway is sponsored by Lex of SmarmyClothes. If you’re a real smart cookie, you already know that I’M LEX!  And I’m giving away this rockin’ little mini purse that’s featured in the FIRST EVER WhatTheCraft video tutorial.


SmarmyClothes offers eclectic d.i.y. clothing & accessories with a little bit of punk, Japanese street fashion, goth, and rockabilly flavor.

This petite little purse is made with rocktastic fabric printed all over with vintage radios. It has checkerboard and striped heart + music note shaped applique details, a full lining, and a snap closure. It’s the perfect size for all your necessities – wallet, phone, keys, and lipstick!

The winner of this giveaway will receive:
a one of a kind SmarmyClothes mini purse

Valued at $25!


Surely you’re dying to see me interview myself!

How long have you been running SmarmyClothes?
SmarmyClothes started out in 2002 as an excuse to not do homework when I was in college. When I started thinking about all the supplies I could buy if I sold some of the stuff I made, I decided to give it a try. I couldn’t turn back after that.

Is it a full-time or part-time endeavor?
Full-time almost doesn’t cover it. If you add up all of the listing, photographing, sketching, marketing, etc. I do aside from sewing, I’m working 3 jobs at once. But I love it, so I can’t complain!

Where do you find inspiration?
Everywhere! I have pretty eclectic tastes, so I can find inspiration almost anywhere- music, tv, books. Sometimes things just pop into my head, and I don’t know where they come from.

What is your favorite item you’ve ever made?

This dress:


I never went to Prom when I was in high school, but I have fun coming up with ridiculous, over-the-top formal dresses, so I can live vicariously through them.

If you had a million dollars, what’s the first handmade item you’d buy?
These Studiojellyfish shoes… I’m not even a shoe person (I know, I’m a sorry excuse for a chick), but these are so sweet. I’d probably have to get the flats though. I’m too clumsy for heels.

 


Comic Shoes by Studiojellyfish


What is your favorite book?
I’m interview myself so I’m breaking the rules and picking more than one. Take that, ME!
The House of the Spirits
because I’m obsessed with magic realism
A Game of Thrones – because Lord of the Rings can suck it, George R.R. Martin is so much better than Tolkein
Case Histories – because I love mysteries and this is by far my favorite so far
