WOW!!!!

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.

Santa Cruz Bagworks Large tote in Waxed Canvas and Leather.

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.
