About

From sketch to "Sold"

I have always had a passion for sewing and at a young age began making things for myself, thanks to the help of my Mom. It wasn't until 2009 that I decided to put that talent to good use. I decided to start my own company selling handmade bags and cases.

It all started out by setting up my sewing machine on our dining table and working away in the evenings and on weekends. Now I do all of the work from a small office / studio that I have in my home, although some days, it feels like I have taken over the entire house when I am sorting out the fabrics that I have.

My bags usually start from a sketch or an idea that I have in my head which are then transferred onto scrap fabrics that I have. The pieces are then sewn together to make sure that all of the kinks are worked out and that the item will be a success. I then dig out my trusty stitch ripper and start to carefully dismantle the pieces so that I can use them for my pattern. From there I begin the real work by selecting colour combinations that look great and begin to make the bags on my small sewing machine, that some days decides to work smoothly and others chugs like a freight train.

Once the bags are completed I take multiple pictures, sift through the results looking for the best shots, post the listing and keep my fingers crossed for the almighty "Sold" sign.

    In my weekly / daily life I am an Interior Designer but when I have a few minutes to spare, I focus on my company, Jean. I have always had a passion for sewing and I figured, why keep it to myself, share it with others!!
