It is so hard to find the right bridesmaids gifts. Why not thank your bridesmaid for all their hard work by gifting a personalized gift from A Sunny Disposition.
Over to my new friend, Susan, who is the women behind A Sunny Disposition. I fell in love with her work last year and I am eagerly waiting for her to be back from her travelling so she can make my new personalised wallet. ☺
I, Susan, create bags for people who appreciate individuality. Each piece is a limited edition piece, Made one at a time by me, in my home Studio.
ASD began as a creative outlet for me while I was exploring my options in a new country. But 4 yrs later and a move back to India; I cannot imagine not doing what I do now.
The bags I make are ones that I personally would love to carry with me and I almost always have a bag for all occasions – quick grab and go wallet (can hold your phone, keys, cash, coins and receipts), big totes to hold everything including the kitchen sink, classy clutches in small and large sizes according to your preference- and a host of other fun and useful stuff in between.
My process is very organic. I start off by visualizing what I would want in an item and how it can be functional yet still very interesting. Sometimes, I get so excited that I drop what I am working on and start cutting through fabrics and sewing them up because I just can’t wait to see what I imagined come to life. Other times, I take it slow and draw out my design (I love to sketch!). Next, I think about how to construct it and then build it up bit by bit until I have a sample or prototype that I am satisfied with. It’s tested by me to see if it’s all that I imagined it to be. Then, comes the part where I try to get you to feel the same as about them as I do and I do that using the essential arts of photographing, marketing and selling.
Working on a bridesmaid/ maid of honour line is something I’ve looked forward to doing for a while now. When a person makes something by hand for someone, that person is receiving a connection to the maker in terms of the energy, time and love they spent. And when this is done for a special bride – to make memories for her special day – it is a deep association that brings me a lot of joy.
I can help make the bridesmaids standout with personalized clutches in complimentary colours to the wedding party, or make it a little more personalized with their initials embroidered into a pocket of the clutch.
Having a destination wedding? How about jewellery rolls or makeup pouches for your favourite ladies that they can use for the wedding?
