Olympia Le-Tan's Book Purses

Olympia Le-Tan's embroidered book purses/clutches are too divine for words.....

These images were taken from here. Some more can be seen here. And more here. A tiny interview with her here.



Can you tell I'm plotzing here? Also fantasizing about turning Red Velvet Forest into something like this myself. (If only I'd learned how to sew....the embroidery part I think I could fake). And we actually still have the piece of red velvet that Rob took used for the image in his painting which is in fact the cover of the book. How cool would that be?

I think I read somewhere that these lovelies go for around 2000ish Cdn...so am definitely just fantasizing. The also wonderful Rebound books are suddenly looking affordable though.
