Lovely pattern, good construction, love all the pockets on the outside. Wish the lining was a more substantial canvas to hold up to all the beach day lugging that is coming this bag's way! but otherwise very lovely tote bag. Getting lots of compliments and referring them to Saphrona!

This was on time as promised. This is the cutest little bag. I wish I'd payed closer attention to measurements because my phone will not fit.

This bag is sooo cute!!!!!
I am drawn to colors, textures and fabrics they inspire my designs.
My story began while recovering from a Bone Marrow transplant I started Saphrona as a form of therapy. It has helped me immensely. And now I continue creating simply for the love of the craft.
I have always enjoyed sewing it was a way to relax, clear my head. My only formal education in the field of design is my passion for creativity.
My inspiration comes from colors and textures that surround me whether it comes to me in a fabric shop a thrift shop or everyday life.
I enjoy working with all types of fabric. I am always striving to create something new and different. The more challenging the design the greater the reward when its' finished.
There is no such thing as too much fabric. I don't believe I have ever left a shop empty handed. And for me it isn't just about the fabric the perfect product is the finishing. The little extras, like bows, buttons, ribbons and most important the love and care that you put into it. And if you do it right the love you add will show.
Since the inception of Saphrona I have expanded to other crafts which include home decor, crocheting and knitting. I don't want to put limits on myself. But no matter what I create I will always strive to bring the best finished hand crafted product to my customers.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator, Fabric Fanatic.
I love all types of crafts. But I am drawn to sewing. I lose myself in a fabric store. The moment I am drawn to a fabric my mind is creating the finished product inspired by the color and texture. I strive to create designs that appeal to all.
