TDS shop update!

Okay, I obviously have to lead with this photo of THE dainty Squid doing quality control. SO CUTE!

I’ve been working my buns off the last couple weeks on a big update for the shop. This morning over 50 new listings went live. Two brand new sizes, and a bunch of new prints. I’m so excited to finally share!

New size number 1 – above – the XL flat bottom pouch! Since before I even officially opened up people have been requesting larger and larger pouches. I thought my flat bottom pouches were a nice size but after making this bad boy I realize maybe they are a bit more petite than I previously thought. The XL flat bottom pouch measures approximately 9 inches (23cm) at its widest point by 4.5 inches (12cm) tall. The flat bottom is 2.5 inches (6cm) across.  It’ll hold a lot!

New size number 2 – above –  the clutch! The first one of these I made was kind of an accident. I had cut the fabric for something else too short and decided to just add another piece of fabric on top of that. It looked precious! I knew I had to make a few more and thats how this little line of one of a kind clutches came to life. I only have seven of them right now so don’t hesitate if theres one you have your eye on. Each one even comes with a handmade zipper pull. (I am 100% obsessed with the zipper pulls! I wish I could add them to EVERYTHING, alas it’d take up all of my time making that many of them!)

Check it all out here!

    ▴ Maidenform ‘tap pants’. Let’s call these what they are, booty shorts. They’re super comfortable and gosh darn it, they look good. For under $20, you basically can’t go wrong with them. I like them so much I even ordered a second pair in another color with a matching top.
