I absolutely love my purse and my matching personalized wallet. They are very well made with attention to detail. I get a lot of compliments! I will be ordering again soon.

Bag is well made but as others have said it is smaller than expected. Definitely smaller than how it appears on the "model". It is still a great bag and I will definitely get some good use out of it! Thanks!

About

The Barefoot Bags Story

As a child I used to watch my mom sew clothes for me and my brothers. I used this "education" to teach myself how to sew in college and practiced by making some Halloween costumes. After getting married and buying our first home, I began sewing some home decor items (curtains, pillows, etc.). My sewing "habit" was a weekend hobby while I worked full time in a law firm. When my son was born in 2008 I became a stay at home mom and tried my hand at making some baby blankets - around this time I also got a new sewing machine (I had been using my mom's old one which was probably almost as old as me!)

When my son was only 9 months old I became pregnant with my daughter and decided to tackle making crib bedding since I could not find anything in any of the stores that I liked. I set up the sewing machine in the dining room of our 3 bedroom home and it's still there to this day! After the crib bedding was done, I decided to make a bag for my mom for a mother's day gift. I enjoyed making it so much I started buying all sorts of bag patterns and just kept at it until I realized that I should try selling them. This is when Barefoot Bags was born and my dining room became a full time sewing room. I miss having a formal place to eat dinner with the family and some day I hope to have a larger home with a sewing room, but for now it's working out ok :)

My business has greatly expanded since I started in 2010 but I still do all the work myself from cutting and ironing to sewing and packaging for shipment and I enjoy all of it!
