Laarni & Tita

Hi, I’m Laarni!  I’ve always been curious about how things are made, and this lead me to designing and sewing bags for myself, my daughter and friends.  Soon it became clear that the desire for durable bags made from colorful and cute patterns was not limited to family and friends.  I began selling my unique styles of hobo and messenger bags, totes, mini purses, make-up bags, clutches, wristlets, I-pad cases and passport covers at the marketplace.  I personally make everything by hand, putting careful though into every detail, such as, where to cut on the print, down to the final stitch.  PRIZE:A medium sized wristlet purse ($24 value).  For more info, see our site: http://www.laarniandtita.com/
