HANDMADE LOVE - Handcrafted Wear-able Art

It's Not Just A Bag - It's Your Bag! BizzieLizzieHandmade Bags on Etsy! BizzieLizzieHandmade is a small one gal indie biz! Nothing is mass produced and NO manufacturers are involved! I source fabrics in small quantities to keep things interesting! "Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted." - John 6:12 "Scraps" - the passion that drives me! I love finding them and I love using them to create with!

My name is Charlotte! I LOVE to sew! Please feel free to contact me with your requests! I would love to work with you, too! With BizzieLizzie Handmade - you'll get just that! True - REAL - handmade! I am the owner as well as the "maker"! I do not out source any of my work. There is NO staff involved under me! There are no manufacturers involved in my process. I do not let someone else handle my shipping. I answer all of my e-mails! When you buy from me - you buy from a small one-gal-show! I have sewn practically my entire life, over 40 years around the machine and I am still passionate about it! I'm not interested in becoming a "factory"! I love that I create one bag at a time and most of the time - that will be the only one created with that fabric combination! When you decide to purchase from me - you will receive fantastic customer service, meticulous details and competitive handmade pricing!

BizzieLizzie Handmade! What's in a name? Our sweet daughter inspired the name and the end result comes from my innate personal desire to create for others with fabric! I'm an ex-USN/USAF gal and am thankful for those that serve! After spending many years in the technical arena I decided to give that all up when Lizzie came along! I married later in life. I love my family and I love being a work-at-home mother! If you had asked me years ago where did I see my life heading towards - I would have never given you this answer. Lizzie changed me in a dynamic way and I am blessed beyond words on a daily basis!

When I'm not in my sewing room - you can find me enjoying time with my family outdoors! We are a NATURE loving family and I enjoy capturing a piece of that through my lens!

“To be nobody but
yourself in a world
which is doing its best day and night to make you like
everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.”
― e.e. Cummings

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes! I do accept custom orders! I have the "custom" button disabled as I prefer to be contacted through Etsy's e-mail system with your requests. Custom order requests require payment in full before any work is started. I ask that you allow up to 7 days for completion of your items - once payment has been received.

Wholesale availability

I am 100% a handmade seller - I employ no help and work with no outside manufacturers. Therefore I do not offer traditional (50% + off) wholesale. However, I do offer percentage discounts on bulk orders as shown in my shop! More options are available - please do not hesitate to contact me with your requests.

Care instructions

Most of my listings have "CARE" instructions in the listing. If you want to find out more - please do not hesitate to contact me with your questions.

Sizing details

Some of my bags can be replicated in a larger or smaller sizes if the fabric is available. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you see a particular fabric that you like, but want a differently sized bag or accessory!

Gift wrapping and packaging

If you've chosen one of my items to be sent as a gift and would like the item wrapped with a card - please do not hesitate to ask. I would love to accommodate your request - FREE - of charge!

Other Etsy Accounts

I am also under the userID - BizzieLizzieToo - that I set up for Lizzie's art work one day, but right now there is no activity under that ID.
