Thank you SO MUCH and for the GREAT communication too! AAA+++
Color, Design and Style...
About 9 years ago the fabric/yarn bug bit me and I haven't looked back!
After designing and sewing my own handbags and being constantly asked if I sold them, it FINALLY dawned on me...
And there has been no looking back!
I LOVE color and design... be it fabric or yarn I just love the feel of it and being challenged to put them together in a fun, creative and pleasing manner!
I am a self taught sewer and knitter, both of my grandmothers were experts, but I had no interest when I was young. I believe they are my little craft angels, pushing me along when I need inspiration!
All of By Your Side's handbags, purses and hats are handcrafted from high quality fabric and yarns, with attention to detail and functionality.
Owner, Designer, Maker
I am Michele Davidson. I am a wife, mom and creator of handbags, purses and hats! I design and sew from my studio in Portland, Oregon.
It is my sincere hope that you find that “perfect” purse!
I love creating custom orders!
If you see a style of purse you like, but want a different fabric, just let me know, am completely available to help you create that “perfect” purse!
All of my creations are handcrafted from high quality fabric and yarns, with attention to detail and functionality. By Your Side’s purses and handbags are interfaced with Pellon for body and strength, and stress points are double or even triple stitched!
