Friday Feature

This weeks shop is a fun and creatively cute shop called Angelina La Dawn Tomato. This shop is full of fun, cute, bright bag and totes! Perfect for everyday use, would make a lovely holiday gift!

Now here's a little about the shop and Angie, the shops owner.

My shop is all about things I love to make and create. I am always trying to create something a little different, but always functional and something i would want myself. I love spending my free time thinking up new ideas and trying them out. My mom taught me to sew when I was 10 and I've been getting better and better ever since then. I initially got drawn to bags because there are so many design options and I love carrying something with me everyday that I created just for me.

My shop name is kinda weird { or so I've been told.} It's actually my nickname, so for me it feels very personal and I've been called "Angelina La Dawn" by my friends for a couple years now, so when it came time to pick a shop name i thought it fit perfectly. I'm also partial to tomatoes :) Like I said I've been sewing since I was a kid, but I really got into making purses and bags in high school. Since then I've spent time concentrating on construction and different embellishment techniques as well.

Creating is one of my life's passions- a driving force for me. Everything I make is one-of-a-kind because it just wouldn't be the same to replicate something over and over again I also only use my own patters- store bought patters take a lot of creativity out of the process for me.
