I’ve been gearing up for my book launch event, set to take place on June 12 in Brooklyn. Every book purchase will be accompanied by a gift bag! I wanted to go with reusable tote bags to not only encourage recycling (I’m all about these reusable shopping bags) but to further showcase the DIY ethic and drive of what studs & pearls is all about. When all is said and done, I’ll have hand stenciled close to 50 bags! I love that each one is slightly different from the next. My favorite thing about handmade, after all.
