About

It all started when.....

I was on a quest for interesting fibers and fabrics that I became fascinated with felting; I love the idea of knitting something flat and then transforming the loose-knit yarn into a new object with it's own personality and shape. Although my own everyday purse is a well-loved and well-worn leather carry-all, it isn't the type bag you take to lunch or to a cocktail party. I love the idea of the cocktail or evening bag. I love the idea of "ladies who lunch" and need more than an everyday bag to carry a lipstick -- something that is more than a purse - something that is elegant or flirty or fun -- the perfect accent.

Whatever bag you choose, it is an original. No two bags are the same; each one is knitted, felted, molded, and embellished by my hand.

    It seems like I have been sewing all of my life. BABS is the culmination of my passion for fiber, fashion and self expression.

Welcome and thank you for visiting my Esty shop. Part of the charm of handmade items is just that, they are handmade. If you are looking for precision cuts, factory stitching and man-made materials, you are in the wrong shop. If you love the feel of hand-felted wool and soft silk and you need a fabulous cocktail bag--you've come to the right place!
