Well, I don’t know how I’d feel if things that looked like me were all over the house. But then, I’m not as cute as Bella! As always, I did not pose her. She must have felt their eyes on her…
…or she wanted me to feature things with the Bella! design—accessory bags and dish towels and the original tote bags. All items are handmade, printed and embellished, and many of the materials, zippers and other parts are reclaimed from old textiles or clothing.

Bella! Accessory Bags
I make each 5 x 8 bag from reclaimed natural linen fabric, stencil my “Bella!” silhouette and embellish with buttons sewn on by hand. White zipper closure.
I used linen fabric for these because, along with reusing and recycling many other things in manufacture and packaging, I also reuse or recycle household goods, like old tablecloths, draperies, and other fabric items that can’t be donated (if I don’t use them for TNR). The linen has such a nice drape, and that works with these little bags, so nice to handle, yet it’s very sturdy.
I’m designing the zipper pull now and refining it for wear. They will be made of polymer clay and I’m working out the diameter and thickness. Such fun!
These small bags are $15.00 each, including shipping and handling.
Bella! Dish Towels
These dishtowels are printed on premade 18″ x 28″ flour sack towels with my “Bella!” silhouette stenciled on the bottom edge.
I’ve been looking for options to create dishtowels from some of my designs. I’m working with a fabric to make my own towels to keep the cost down, but I’ve still got a few flour sack dishtowels left. I chose the two most popular kitty colors to stencil these, Housepanther, the original Bella! and Ginger Kitty.
I didn’t include the button eye embellishment on these after talking to a few friends who said they’d prefer their dish towels without buttons. I still love the silhouette!
Bella! Tote Bags
I’ve also printed more of the first with this design, the Bella! tote bag! Printed on lightweight canvas bags with the design stenciled at the bottom and button eyes as embellishment.
