I’m Rebecca, I’m the artist, seamstress, photographer, designer, model, admin, janitor, etc. behind Retrofied. Retrofied grew out of a love for textiles and printing - and a need to do something with an insanely large fabric stash.

All bags and patterns are original Retrofied designs. Each design is something I have created to meet a need in my own life and love sharing with others.

I am proud to also start offering bags in my own fabric designs. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do! Check them out at:
