IsidoraDesigns-blue-bagWomen are often asked which items they can’t leave home without, and the answer is almost always a makeup product like a lipstick or blush-on powder, or a gadget like a smartphone. Moms, however, often have a tougher time replying to such queries, especially those who’ve recently given birth. Caring for infants requires essentials like diapers and baby wipes, and extra pairs of onesies, mittens, and shoes or booties. All of these items can’t fit into a regular woman’s purse.

For this reason, on-the-go moms use diaper bags to carry all their essentials while doing the groceries or picking up the kids from school. However, the majority of diaper bags sold at retail stores resemble giant tote bags, and fashion-conscious moms want more—a bag that’s functional and stylish at the same time. Thus, trendy personalized diaper bags are a good option.

Personalizing bags are nothing new to those who keep up with the fashion industry. Over the years, renowned bag designers have created products that were inspired by different celebrities’ unique sense of style, like the Bardot bag from Gucci (named after 1960s sex siren Brigitte Bardot). On the downside, these limited-edition bags often come with price tags that are so astronomical, they can induce heart attacks.

There’s a niche market for mothers of newborn babies; a lot of products have been specifically designed to support mothers as they take care of their infants. Most of these things are practical, such as strollers and milk pumps. Useful as they might be, they can be boring and drab to look at.

Mothers can still be fashionable, and what’s a woman to do when baby-centered items lack fashion? Moms have the option to buy trendy items that look good on them, as well as serve an important purpose for them and their little ones. They can start by purchasing lovely personalized diaper bags which don’t just look good but are spacious for their baby’s stuff as well.

Who said sewing projects had to be akin to your grandmother’s knitting? Whether you’re a sewing novice or a veteran soldier of silk, making things with fabric and thread can provide plenty of entertainment and possibilities. Our modern age of technology and social media has unfortunately turned a blind eye towards creating things the old fashioned way. Most people would rather purchase their clothes than make them, or resort to an expensive gift when a homemade item can be just as lovely with twice the charm. Below are a few examples of fun sewing projects and the type of adventures you can have with them.

designing vintage bagsVintage styled handcrafted purses are an amazing way to express your style. One of the biggest global trends right now is to reuse items you already have in order to lessen the impact we have on the environment. This practice has been labeled upcycling, and it has also become one of the major fashion trends of 2012. The do it yourself movement has been gaining momentum for some time now, and for crafty people who have always loved to sew and create new things from the old, upcycling is just an excuse to make new, fun items like handcrafted purses, tote bags and sewing crafts with the fabric they already have sitting around the house.

fashionable handbagsNothing allows women to express their personalities quite like fashion does. Women are drawn to fashion because clothing is the foundation of personal style. A woman who wears well-chosen pieces will always look good, even if she does not style her hair or wear much makeup. It is always better to err on the side of simplicity than to risk going overboard with gaudy shoes and accessories. The right purse can effortlessly tie a whole outfit together.
