Come to the Santa Cruz Government Building from 5pm to 8am tonight for First Friday!
Myself and about 6 other Artists will be there. Our work will be up for the next few months if you miss us tonight!
I can’t believe that it’s 2014 already! Even though the time flew last year, I am excited about what’s to come of 2014 for me. I am changing my business name to Janice Serilla Design. My brands will be of course Mackerilla for my Mackerilla brand sewing patterns and bags. Santa Cruz Bagworks for my new high end bag designs. Still in the works but I do have my SCBW large tote available.
Contact me if your interested in one of these babies! They retail for $180 and is a great everyday carryall. I love this design! Working on new designs after I update all my Mackerilla Sewing Patterns.
Next is Gimpy Pets of course with all my pet related products. I will be hopefully a vendor in the upcoming Spring Dog event. I donate a percentage of my sales to senior and disabled pets in need.
Then last is Hannula & Dest. My collaberation with Debbie Graves Design. We have our cool apron designs and upcycled homeware items.
Lastly, my T-shirt and fabric designs. Which I work on in between all the other stuff!!! I am also excited to play around with some clothing design ideas. I found some really nice high end fabrics and on my rainy dayzzz will create something wearable! Oh yea!!! And find the time to do a artwork! Been itching to paint!!! 😉
Now to plan my time wisely and get to it!
Happy New Year to Everyone!!!! 🙂

The California weather is finally here! What a weird Winter and Spring we have had!
Working on Cushion covers for an old camper for a friend. Then back to my sewing patterns and other projects.
I do want to start some fun unique handbags soon. I have a bunch of really nice leather handles and I am ready to make something with using them. I will post when done!
I get custom order requests often. Some simple basic stuff like recovering some cushions or recreating a favorite handbag.
I got a request from the lovely ladies from Coastside Couture to make some Fanny-like packs for them to wear at their Wedding events that they are working. They need to carry everything from scissors, pins, to paperwork, to cellphones, wedding rings and any other item needed for the bride at a wedding.
This is a sample finished in some scrap fabric I had around. I will be making 6 of this style for the crew of ladies that do a fan-taboulous job!
If your getting married and need someone to run the show! Or your in need of some personal assistance, Contact one of these two lovely ladies!
