Not a traditional scarf that's a single piece of fabric...this is like two pieces of fabric sewn together. I assume to hide the backing of the embroidered initials. This makes it very bulky. Not quite what I envisioned but it's personalized so no returns.

My wife loves this clutch! Her iPhone X with case and other items fit in there very nicely, and it looks great with the wristlet.

I have always enjoyed making things........especially things that are useful and practical. Whether you buy one of our purses to use while running errands or while taking that oversees trip, we hope that you find it a practical way to keep your essentials close and safe.

We are Roger & Melissa, husband & wife.
We are located in the USA; in beautiful NY state.

In 2011, I began sewing purses and selling on Etsy as a
way to supplement our income. We only had a handful of sales each month. I homeschooled our children, and Roger went to work. But in 2013 my little business became to mean much more than just "extra income". Due to a depressed economy jobs were cut , and suddenly Roger was without a job, and we were without income. We were really thankful for my little side business! Roger eventually found part-time work, but quickly gave that up to help me as the business began to grow and we began receiving more orders than I could fill on my own. Now we are working together full-time while raising our 3 children.

Each item is handmade by me. Roger is putting his photography and graphic design skills to good use in our shop. He also is our shipping manager, and assists with production by ironing and clipping threads.

Our Etsy shop is our full-time job, and this is how we support our family of 5......We love our customers, and truly appreciate every sale that comes our way!
