Handmade Durable Bags, made in the USA

Born under a Pisces sun sign, I have always sought out creative pursuits. Working in Corporate America has let me wanting for a creative outlet, which has led to painting, designing jewelry, studying metal smithing, lampworking classes and even teaching wire jewelry classes. My studio is filled with paint brushes, torches, jeweler tools, glass, gemstones, beads, metal sheets, wire, etc.

Sewing had started years ago when I would sneak a few moments on my mother's sewing machine. While in college I discovered a sewing machine overstock sale and looking back on it now, I am not sure why I was drawn to that sale, but left with a sewing machine that had the ability to sew 6 types of stitches :-P. I can't remember what I paid for it, but I do recall going without pizza for several weeks. Sewing continued to be a creative outlet for a few years, but work, buying a house, and pursuing other creative outlets replaced my sewing habit.

One day, a desire to have a simple sturdy bag resulted in only finding poorly made and flimsy bags both online and in retail stores. After no luck, thoughts of my old sewing machine quietly sitting for years on a closet shelf came to mind. So, I decided to create my own, dusted off my old sewing machine and never looked back. Since I was already selling my jewelry through my Etsy shop, I realized I should sell all the "sewing projects" that had accumulated around the house via my Etsy Shop. Over the years, I began creating my own patterns and went from experimenting with cottons, and hemps fabrics, to linen, leathers and making my own waxed canvas. I have also graduated from that metal sewing machine to a few industrial sewing machines.
