Down the Rabbit Hole...

My daughter was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy type II at 18 months old. Because of the SMA (a neuromuscular condition) she is completely non ambulatory and must use a motorized wheelchair to get around.

When she was 9 she wanted a purse that attached to the side of her wheelchair, so we looked... and looked... and looked! But we couldn’t find anything designed to attach to the arm of a wheelchair that was even remotely cool.

So, I busted out the sewing machine and made her a bag with pink and black skull fabric added rhinestones to the eyes and topped it all off with hot pink fake fur trim.
She got so many comments about how great the bag was and so many people asking where she got it, that I thought I would give making, and selling handbags a try.

It’s been a wild ride ever since :)
