"I could do that!"
My story started in 2011 when I saw some - badly made - handmade bags on a craft fair and thought "I could do that much better!". I had been sewing for many years already; I initially started as a teenager with making my own clothes and later began on homeware, but apart from some skirts and the occasional curtains or pillows I didn't do much with my skills up to then.
So I got myself some easy bag patterns to start with - tote bags, shopping bags etc - and then slowly started on more complex models. I am now really passionate about all kinds of bags and always try to come up with new styles. I also love to do gadget covers, I make these for phones, tablets, DS or anything you need a cover or a holder for.
I love colourful, unusual fabrics but have also discovered a love for Harris Tweed. The texture and the colours are just amazing and I love working with tweed.
All my items can be made to order, most of them in various sizes and of course in a fabric or pattern of your choice. Just ask me anytime if you have questions!

Owner, Maker, Designer
I grew up in Germany but moved to England in 2008. I live in Woking/Surrey with my husband Andy and our elderly cat Cracker. Crafting has always been an important part of my life but I only discovered my bag making skills about 4 years ago.
I love sewing and particularly bags, purses, organizers and holders. Most of the patterns I use are my own design, but I also use other patterns from designers like Lisa Lam.
I am passionate about animals and wildlife which is reflected in most of my items, but I also love to use unusual patterns and recycled or upcycled fabrics which can't be found on the shelves.
All my items can of course also be custom made for you - most of them also in various sizes. Just ask me anytime if you have any questions or requests.
