Monique of Original Mischief is the creator of the designer gift bags, pictured below:
There are 12 of these designer gift-bags. They are made from vintage terry towelling fabric and are 6 inches by 6 inches and are lined. The handles are 14 inches long so that they are comfortable in anyone's hand.
Original Mischief: "Hip handmades using vintage and retro fabrics... because every body deserves a little mischief!"
Monique makes gorgeous original pillows and cushions, totes, clutches and bags, and girls' and women's clothing.

Monique was one of the first people to get involved in this project. She saw my vision and ran with it. Monique was patient with me while I made changes to the order size (from 18 to 12 as we couldn't get any financial sponsors to help cover the costs of the bags), and then she worked like a demon to get the bags made and on their way to me.
8 of these bags will be filled with a selection of quality items, provided by other WAHMs and small business owners, to be delivered to a small number of celebrities at the upcoming Sydney Supanova (June 17-19). I will be personally handing these bags to the celebs and if possible taking photos of them with the bags. 2 of these bags will be given to Supanova Staff and the lest 2 will be auctioned off to try to recover costs (all containing the same items as the bags for the celebs).
I chose to ask Monique to make the bags as she is a friend and I love her designs. Monique did let me know that paper gift bags were a lot cheaper, but I wanted a gift that would be a collector's item in it's own right. I wanted something that would be re-useable and hence eco friendly. I also chose Monique as she is a fellow WAHM and if I'm going to spend money I would prefer the money to go to another WAHM.
Thank you Monique. I look forward to any future projects that we may work on.
