I absolutely love this purse I made from the Hold it Right There pattern. Suzanna was right there all the way as I had questions. She definitely was patient and generous in responding quickly with help. Thank you Suzzana!

Here's a peek at the lining. One tester, an experienced bag maker, told me this is the cleanest zip pocket ever! My instructions are detailed to ensure that you're happy with the results.
With seven pockets, this may be your most organized bag yet. Here's a close up of the back of the Corcoran Cross Body Bag.

When you make a bag, a piece of useful artwork accompanies you wherever you go.

I've sewn as long as I can remember. In 2011, I began selling the bags I designed on my Etsy shop. However, when I realized I most enjoyed experimenting with new designs, and figuring out -- I wonder how to make that? -- I started developing sewing patterns.

Translating a physical bag into written instructions and illustrations taps my background in teaching, and experience in graphic design.

What begins as a drawing in my sketchbook, morphs through rigorous tests and revisions. What finally emerges, the beautiful creations, singularly interpreted by each maker using my patterns, delights me and inspires me to keep going.
