Pursuing's Shop Announcement

Welcome to Pursuing. My name is Sara and I create bags, totes, purses and personal accessories out of found items.

October 2011 I found myself with plenty of free-time. A stressful career came to a close and I took this opportunity to start doing what so many had said I should do, start selling the custom bags I had been making in my rare spare time. Within a week I began to design and sew. I have found a wonderful niche in recycling, up-cycling, and re-purposing all types of clothes, household items. bags, totes, purses, drapes, upholstery into lovely one-of-a-kind purses. I don't regret the turn my life has taken and I am happy to be Pursuing fulltime!

I love to recycle, up-cycle, and re-purpose. Each item I create incorporates all or a part of a recycled item. Old made new and unused made useful. I typically start with a fabric find from a drape, curtain, sheet, shower curtain, tablecloth, skirt, jacket or whatever catches my eye. Then I start creating! In the end the design of the bag ends up reflecting the tone, edge, and point of the fabric. The end product is a bag like no other bag on earth that is completely unique!
