My custom purse is more than I expected! Its was finished and shipped in no time at all. This is my second bag. I love it just as much as the first. I asked for a certain fabric and she picked out 3 for me too choose from . Her talent and taste is one that i will come back to for other items in the future.
It's so much fun to craft and create!
Hi! My name is Patty R, and there is a story behind the name "Made by Pade." The name comes from a nickname I accrued in college - one of my roommates had a younger sister who was in first grade and wrote her a really cute letter. It read, "Howdy dude Torri (My roommate)! Hows life at the aprtmt (apartment) and how is it with Vike (Vicki - other roommate) and Pade (me!)?" To my college friends, I have been "Pade" (rhymes with "made") ever since. So, when I started my Etsy site, this seemed the perfect name!
I have loved creating things for as long as I can remember. My parents taught me to sew when I was very young, and I spent some time making counted cross-stitch and other hand-stitched items. My crafting went dormant for a while in high school, but in college I took up knitting and also hand-sewed my first quilt! (Still have it - it's a bit of a mess, but has lots of sentimental value.)
In more recent years, I have made clothes for my children, sewn baby carriers (a life-saver! Any of you with young children who have never used a carrier of any kind should look into it), made more "adult" quilts, and made purses for myself and as gifts for friends and family. I have also recently taught myself to crochet, which is great fun, since I can do it any time and any place!
On my site, you will find a collection of purses, zipper pouches, hand crocheted shawls and scarves as well as several other hand-crafted items. I hope you enjoy checking them out, and feel free to message me with any questions!
