About

When my daughter was born, I found a beautiful piece of old vintage cotton, and knew I had to wear it somehow. I pondered that fabric for several weeks before deciding on making myself a bag from it. As a new mom, I wasn't ready to cast off my pretty purses in favor of a bulky diaper bag. So I created my first Lily bag, a functional size with the vintage, colorful, unique style I prefer. I adore finding and curating pretty combinations of vintage and unique fabrics, then turning them into lovely items for my home, or into an irresistible purse to carry on my shoulder.

I've gifted many bags, just for the sheer joy of creating, and occasionally list a bag or two so I can order more amazing fabric for my stash. I hope the small selection that finds the way to my destash cupboard, will bring you as much joy to carry as it brought me to make.
