Announcement   THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY MY SHOP!!!!!!
**PLEASE STATE ON THE INVOICE WHEN ORDERING, THE DATE THAT YOU NEED THE ORDER in the "message to seller" section when checking out. Thank you..

Handmade at my cabin in the mountains of East Tennessee! My bags are inspired by the countryside around me. Quality eco-friendly fabrics such as, ultra-suede, linen, and canvas are used in my bags. I use a heavy duty thread on my bags to ensure they will last for many years to come. Wooden buttons from fallen trees around my home are used to add a one of a kind rustic detail.

Each creation is handmade by me, in my home with no helpers. I pride my business on fashion, quality, and durability. Each bag takes 5 to 6 hours to complete and every bag is made to order, so each is a SPECIAL CREATION just for YOU!

Creating my bags is a time consuming, but rewarding process. I draw inspiration from fabrics and nature, then begin to draw out my design on paper. I create a pattern for the bag. After choosing the perfect colors and fabrics, I hand cut the bag, interface stiffener, strap, and appliques. The amount of interface stiffener that goes into my bags depends on the size and shape of the bag to give it structure so that it does not fold over. After the interface stiffener is applied, the intricate applique is cut and sewn by machine. Pockets and zippers are added where needed for function and ease of finding your items. Finally the pieces of the bag start to come together, adjustable straps, buttons, key chains, and other embellishments are added. I go into the woods near my home to collect fallen limbs for the buttons. I slice the buttons, drill the holes, and apply a sealant to bring out the natural beauty of the grain in the wood.

My bags are all packaged and shipped with care. I stuff them with gift tissue to ensure they don't get flattened during shipping. They arrive wrapped and tied with a bow. If you are giving as a gift the wrapping is already done!

As you can see, several hours of craftsmanship goes into each bag. So please be patient and know that I am taking my time to give YOUR SPECIAL CREATION the time and attention to detail that IT deserves.

Thank you for your interest in my store! My name is Lynda and I have been sewing since I was 6 years old and helped my aunt make a simple skirt. At that time, I saw the magic in a sewing machine and have continued to be inspired by it. My designs are all created by me and no two are exactly alike. I hope you enjoy my creations.
