About

Hello and welcome to Blythe Bags. All of our products are handmade and designed by my daughter Cameron & myself (Kim). Our love of Blythe dolls blossomed after a trip to Japan. I had promised Cameron that we would try to find the Blythe Doll store when we were in Tokyo. It was her 12th birthday and she had been saving and wishing for a Blythe Doll of her own. I, being the ignorant parent that I sometimes am, had no idea what she was referring to, but quickly did some research online so that I would be able to fulfill my promise to her when we were in Tokyo. And the rest is history. We arrived at the Junie Moon shop and fell head over heals in love with these dolls. I can't explain it other than to say that the dolls are quite captivating. Their appeal sneaks up on you when you least expect it. Yes, I confess, I can sometimes be found in Cameron's room playing with the dolls when she's at school. I love to photograph them in…

Hello and welcome to Blythe Bags. All of our products are handmade and designed by my daughter Cameron & myself (Kim). Our love of Blythe dolls blossomed after a trip to Japan. I had promised Cameron that we would try to find the Blythe Doll store when we were in Tokyo. It was her 12th birthday and she had been saving and wishing for a Blythe Doll of her own. I, being the ignorant parent that I sometimes am, had no idea what she was referring to, but quickly did some research online so that I would be able to fulfill my promise to her when we were in Tokyo. And the rest is history. We arrived at the Junie Moon shop and fell head over heals in love with these dolls. I can't explain it other than to say that the dolls are quite captivating. Their appeal sneaks up on you when you least expect it. Yes, I confess, I can sometimes be found in Cameron's room playing with the dolls when she's at school. I love to photograph them in different settings and different outfits. I guess your never to old to play with dolls . . . always a child at heart! Our first design was a messenger bag, as Cameron needed a bag for Ballet. Next came the purses, totes, make up bags and pencil cases. Our newest addition is our jewelry section featuring glass tile pendants and dog tags. More to come soon. It's a family affair with my husband sharing his wisdom regarding the photographs and printing, my seven year old daughter, Taylor, helping with the cutting and trimming. Cameron & I do the designing and sewing. Cameron's love of all things Blythe has made this a wonderful adventure for the whole family. My husband and I have always owned our own businesses. Now we have the chance to take Cameron's hobby and teach her how to turn it into a viable business. Not to mention it's a great mother/daughter bonding experience. The life lessons are invaluable. We hope you enjoy these adorabe little bags and baubles as much as we do.
