Welcome to my site!

I love fine fabrics and have been sewing them since I was a child, creating garments and items for me and my family, especially my grandchildren.

I re-discovered a Koos van den Akker handbag in the back of my closet, which I purchased in the late 1970's.

This bag inspired me to create one of a kind bags from decorator fabrics, fabrics from my stash, unique buttons, ribbons, etc. As I have few female relatives to offer bags as gifts, I decided to offer my bags for sale to those who appreciate the unique and handmade.

During my visits to designers, decorators and upholsterers, locking for fabrics to rescue from being discarded by being crafted into purses, I discovered some remnants of wonderful and beautiful silks, cottons,…

This bag inspired me to create one of a kind bags from decorator fabrics, fabrics from my stash, unique buttons, ribbons, etc. As I have few female relatives to offer bags as gifts, I decided to offer my bags for sale to those who appreciate the unique and handmade.

During my visits to designers, decorators and upholsterers, locking for fabrics to rescue from being discarded by being crafted into purses, I discovered some remnants of wonderful and beautiful silks, cottons, and synthetic blends. Some of these fabrics were originally priced as high as $200 per yard! While some pieces were crafted into clutch bags, most were more suitable to garments, but were rather small pieces. I began to make designs for little girls when my granddaughter Leetal was born 1 1/2 years ago. In an “aha” moment, I thought to use these wonderful fabrics for skirts. I have three designs so far. I would welcome your feedback on these new designs

I have great fun creating and crafting these items. I hope that you enjoy them as well.
