Hello, and thanks for stopping by!

Nestled not too far from the "Queen City", I create one-of-a-kind handbags in my very own MPP Studio! I have been designing my own line of handbags since 2007. In October, I will celebrate my 10 year Etsy-versary! What an exciting time, when I made my very first sale online. Of course, I was very surprised that anyone would purchase the first handbag I decided to list. I actually listed it out of curiosity. And, low and behold, withing the first 2 hours, it was Sold!

Fast-forward 10 years to 2017, I am still going strong. Every design you see in my shop, has been created from beginning, to end by me. Since 2007, to today, my tradition is to use a recycled paper grocery bag to make my patterns. Once the pattern is made, I will test it out on a upcycled/ recycled piece of leather.

Fast-forward 10 years to 2017, I am still going strong. Every design you see in my shop, has been created from beginning, to end by me. Since 2007, to today, my tradition is to use a recycled paper grocery bag to make my patterns. Once the pattern is made, I will test it out on a upcycled/ recycled piece of leather. (I keep a stock of old leather pieces, like couch cushion covers, and old leather garments.) When I'm satisfied with the product, that's when I bring out the specially treated, Italian leather hides! I just love the smell of leather, don't you?

When I am not wearing my "handbag designer" hat, I am either teaching Fashion Design, or designing PDF sewing patterns. The sewing patterns stem from my love for Fashion Design and teaching! I recently opened a new Etsy shop, to house my patterns. Check them out, here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/mppboutiquepatterns?ref=hdr_shop_menu
