At the time, I had no clue how that one Christmas gift would change my life. One day I decided I would finally try to learn how to use the machine and attempt to make a little bag. I wish I had a picture of my very first bag...lets just say it was 'interesting' .. lol. After a bit more practice, something clicked and I decided to make about 10 bags just to see if people would buy them. I only charged $20 or so. I went home to VA one weekend and sold every single bag. It was then I had my ah-ha moment and decided to continue making them. To date, Ive probably made over 300 bags.
It still amazes every time I hear someone tell me how much they love one of my bags! Its the greatest feeling ever to see someone rock something you made/designed with your own hands! I have some of the best, most loyal customers! Its also a great feeling to know celebs like Jennifer Lopez likes your work...that doesn't hurt at all, right? :)
Now 5 years later, I'm still doing handbags. I did take a little break when planning my wedding but I plan to have some new stuff out soon!
Today I'm featuring a few of my personal favorite bags from past collections (2007-2009). Unfortunately, none of these are available anymore. So for those of you out there who own one of these, lucky you!! :)
You know whats even sadder, some of the bags I liked the most, I never even made one for myself! Crazy, right? lol
Also, my website should be re-launching soon so stay tuned for that and be sure to join our mailing list at http://www.nnekasaran.com/ to get updates!
