About

I'm an at home mom with 2 great kids. I love to sew, I've always loved to sew. I've been behind a sewing machine(s) for 40 years now....I LOVE fabric and creating things with fabric.

I currently upcycle old jeans into purses and many other accessories. This was an idea of a friend who didn't sew but thought it was a cool idea. I really wasn't sold on the idea of deconstructing heavy denim jeans. But it has grown into wonderful creative work for me.

I try to have some part of my bags made from repurposed materials, like old jeans. I have found it's a lot of fun to deconstruct things and then recreate something totally new from them!!
I try to be a recycler and have a lot of fun rummaging through garage sales and thrift stores looking for unique and interesting supplies. Church sales are my very favorite places to shop!…

When I'm not conversing with my sewing machines and my fabric, I craft. Nothing in particular but everything in general. This is my therapy.

All of my listings are made in my home by me. Typically they are one of a kind creations made with experience, an eye for detail and precision.
I don't typically use patterns! Some of my best purses were experiments and made just to see if I could do it!!

Here's a few words from my peeps:
"Awesome merchant, cooperative, creative, flexible!! Thanks so much, my niece absolutely loved her purse." auntbarabara

"What a darling little bag! It arrived today, right on time, and the packaging and note that accompanied it were so nice and charming. Thank you so much!" Raquel2000


I hope that as you carry it, gift it or use it, you feel the quality and love that I've put into creating it.


I'd like to thank all of the many treasuries that have featured my denim and craft creations.
The list keeps growing and I certainly appreciate the inclusion in so many collections!
Big Hugs to all of the treasury creators!
