Perfect size for a toddler and adorable print.

This bag was ADORABLE and fit my needs perfectly. It was well crafted and should be able to stand up the wear and tear it will receive in the future.

Great bag -- so well made & wonderful size for carrying knitting projects! And thank you so much for the custom fabrics - lovely!
Carrying on Family Tradition
Why did we name our shop Heron Manufacturing? We wanted to carry on the family tradition, so we adopted the name of the business my father started nearly 50 years ago. He was a craftsman, building wooden door pockets by hand. Heron Manufacturing disappeared after he died, so we resurrected it in 2012 when we opened our Etsy shop. Although Dad probably wouldn't carry a backpack (and certainly not a purse!), we think he would be pleased.
Today, we create backpacks and other bags just like Dad taught us -- hand made, one at a time. We handle every aspect ourselves: design, fabric selection, washing, cutting, interfacing, stitching, pressing, photography, packaging, mailing and bookkeeping.
The best part? Getting to talk to our customers. Our favorite ideas have come from you!

I'm a twin -- that's me on the right, about 2 years old. I've loved textiles since I was a tiny little girl. Today, I'm a psychologist, Air Force veteran & fiber lover. I knit, sew, weave, embroider, cross-stitch, dye, screen print... what's next?
