Announcement   I start with blank, 100% organic and recycled cotton bags (messenger, tote, backpack) and design them exclusively with recycled clothing. I dye my bags a variety of bright, happy colors then shop the thrift stores to find clothing (skirts, blouses, etc.) that can be repurposed to design my bags. I wash and disassemble the clothing, then hand cut all my designs from the pieces. All craftsmanship is created and sewn by me. My finished bags are 100% recycled and sustainable, can be machine washed and dried and used over and over again.

I absolutely love my custom made Tree of Life purse! The quality is wonderful; it is exactly what I was looking for! The purse is very roomy and holds a lot of items, and looks great!

Fantastic bag!!! Custom-made using fabric and designs I saw on other items of her website. I love it -- this is my second as the first is so great I wanted one to use for when the first is in the wash. Very well-made. Thank you!!!

I just received my bag in the mail, and I absolutely love it! Marion was wonderful to work with, and took my idea for my bag and created exactly what I was looking for! I can't wait to start using it! I would recommend this shop to anyone looking for a quality product!

Welcome! Thank you very much for visiting my shop. I believe that everyone can do something, however small, to help conserve our planets natural resources for ours, and future generations. My "something" is to feed my passion for clothes shopping to find interesting patterns, buttons, lace, pockets, just about anything in the thrift store that can be reused. I combine my "finds" with my love of crafting to create something purposeful and beneficial to our planet.

All my bags and t-shirts are one-of-a-kind and unique because I never know what I will find. They are decorated using only the disassembled second hand clothing, materials, belts, lace, ruffles and sewing notions that are reclaimed and reused. All my bags are made from recycled cotton, the dual handled bags are a mix of hemp and recycled cotton. All my T-shirts are 100% organic cotton.

Did you know that one well made reusable bag has the lifespan of over seven hundred disposable plastic bags? Think about it. For more facts go to this interesting web page: http://www.reusethisbag.com/25-reasons-to-go-reusable.asp

Happy Recycling!
