It suddenly occured to me that the most common item in my closet were not shoes like in so many women's wardrobes, but handbags!

I prefer using single colour fabrics of different structure and feel so I can decorate them myself - with beads, lace, applique or embroidery, often not appearing randomly but following the shape of the bag. I love fabrics and will also use printed designs when I can complement them with my own hand work. I have recently started adding some small home decor items to my shop, like little fabric house brooches and keyrings.

All my seams are double stitched and reinforced on stress points for extra durability. There will be no fraying and unravelling if I can help it!
