Hi! I have been sewing since I was old enough to pin fabric to a Barbie doll! I transitioned from styling clothes for Barbie to making my own clothes, and from there I went on to make clothing for others. Eventually I found that it was easier to fit windows than people so I started a home decorating business that lasted for 20 years. Growing weary of making yet another window treatment, I decided to try my hand at using old leather coats to make purses. I love this phase! There's nothing better than a soft, slouchy leather handbag, in my opinion. Why not do my part to help save the environment and start recycling leather coats! And why not spread the love by starting my new business, ReFind Originals? So there you have it! Every bag is unique and buttery soft, handmade by me. I do take custom orders. Maybe you have an old leather coat hanging in your closet just waiting for its second life as a handbag! Be sure and stop by my website…
