Just Listed-Mario Brothers Toiletry Bags

Happy Monday!

I’m so happy to introduce a new set of Toiletry and Make Up Bags to the Pink Toe Press Etsy Shop!

These bags are a  fun bunch! They feature everyone’s favorite Italian Plumber: Mario …and all his friends!  A great gift for boys and girls, these bags are durable, attractive, and spacious. There are TWO sizes available: One Boxy Bag ( think DOP Kit) and a smaller pouch (for pencils or makeup).

The bags are of durable construction and fully lined. You can see the bright, colorful lining in the photos above. The bags are sturdy and quilted with an interfacing to maintain their shape. The boxy bags will hold up in your carry-on or your suit case  on travel trips. Tuck one in your book-bag to keep your computer chargers, stylus, and mouse all in one place! I keep one in my purse with my phone charger, a spare pen, and lipstick!

 

Two awesome Mario   fabrics make these a great gift for girls, boys, or adults!  One features all your favorite characters from the games. The other design (in blue) shows a few of your favorite characters running along blocks with Piranha Plants and Goombas. Also shown are the matching hair bows/ bow ties. Get a complete set for a Christmas or Birthday gift! Available online  and at my upcoming craft fairs this summer!

Where the Unicorn Roam

If you hadn’t noticed from earlier posts, I’ve been on a bit of a hair-bow kick! I’ve been breaking into my vintage fabric stash and making some amazingly cute bows for hair of all lengths.

My current favorites are the Star Wars Bows (of course) and these cute Unicorn Bows. The fabric is a vintage fabric from the mid 1960’s to early 1970’s. The name on the selvage just says “Carousel”. I purchased it from a woman at the RoseBowl Flea Market in Pasadena who had a more than impressive collection of vintage fabrics for sale. I think that Flea Market is one of the things I miss most about LA, but I digress…

Unicorn Bow

They are currently for sale in my Etsy shop. Each bow is handmade by yours truly. I am currently working on a different style bow that does not have the seam along the edges. It’s a bit wider, but not as tall as this design. Stay tuned.

Alligator clips make for easy styling. The clips are good for a variety of hair lengths.

Welcoming an Outta This World NEW Project

Happy Saturday! Here is a sneak peek of new items from Pink Toe Press! These cute little hair bows are made from my (obsessive) collection of fabrics. Many fabrics are hard to find, vintage, or out-of-print.

These bows are made with Retro-Styled Space Kid fabric. I love the bright, bold colors and the lovely sky blue background. These would pair well with a summery dress in blues or reds.

They are hand sewn and folded. Each bow has an alligator clip on the back, but I am happy to customize with French Clips or even a pin. If you order them from my Etsy Shop, you can choose the backing that is right for you!

Great for little ones and adults. They’re bound to turn heads!

New Accessories in Etsy Shop: Sailor Moon Bows

The newest addition to Pink Toe Press is inspired by the first Anime that I watched obsessively often in my youth: Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon has just celebrated its 20th anniversary AND Toei Animation released an newly animated version of Sailor Moon called Sailor Moon Crystal that very closely follows the Manga storyline.

I recently started making cute hair bows. The bows are made using origami folding techniques and cotton fabrics, and are unique to Pink Toe Press. They are available in several sizes and many are made with vintage fabrics. Perfect for young and old, they are a lovely and unique accessory.

A NEW addition to this line of hair bows is a “brooch” in the center styled after the costumes of Sailor Moon and her friends the Sailor Senshi.

The brooch designs are created by yours truly. This brooch was inspired by Sailor Moon’s locket from the original anime. I changed the design a little bit so that it would be clear at the 1-inch size. The brooches are made using my 1-inch professional button maker and are secured with a dab of glue. More designs are coming soon. I’ve even got some requests!

They would make a lovely gift for the Sailor Moon fan in your life. They could also be a fun cosplay accessory. The larger-sized red bows would be great for a Sailor V or Sailor Venus costume!

While my brooches are currently offered with Alligator Clip backings, I may make them able to attach to cat collars for the little Luna or Artemis in your life…
