I love it. It's high quality and beautifully made. Great design with the right amount of pockets and the main compartment zips up securely. Fast shipping, too.

Beautiful! Exactly as the picture showed! Lara was very accommodating with my request. Since I am a short person, Lara customized the backpack's strap to fit my frame. Fits very well. I ordered the product on a Sunday, Lara mailed it on Monday and I received it on Wednesday (from West Coast to East Coast). Product looks well made and will definitely hold contents in an average person's purse and more without looking bulky.

About

About Lara Howe Designs

My first sewing experience was when I was about 6 or 7. My mother gave me a little sewing kit and using the fabric from a dress I had out grown, sat beneath the apple tree in our backyard and stitched together my first purse.

Years later in my home economics class, Mrs. Kuesler introduced me to the sewing machine and a hot iron and well.... I knew in that moment I had found my "chocolate" in life. You know, the thing that really gets your creative juices flowing and just down right makes you happy.

It wasn't until our second child was born that I had the idea to sell some of my homemade creations at our local handcraft market. That was 20 years ago... and I am so blessed to say my sewing helped me be a stay at home mom and continues to help pay our bills and put food on our table.

Thanks to my customers at the Eugene Oregon Saturday Market who pushed me to go on-line with my products, I've begun a whole new adventure and ship my bags all over the world now... It just amazes me. Every sale puts a smile on my face and inspires me to keep creating. It's a blessing, as sewing isn't something I do...it's part of who I am. I can no more stop sewing than breathing, it would seem.

I thank you for visiting my shop and hope you enjoy what you see !
