PLEASE BE SURE TO READ this announcement to the end, and my policy sections in full for complete details before placing your order.

MORE ABOUT THE INTERCHANGEABLE BAG:
UNDERSTANDING THE PURSE MAKING: This style of purse has four parts to it – the main bag (outside fabric), upper ruffle, inside lining, and a metal handle. By using an INTERCHANGEABLE handle, this gives you the ability to change out the bag to a bag of a different fabric or print, thus having another bag (new look) without the additional cost of the handle. The bags are fairly easy to change out, like putting elastic through a waistband casing.

MY BAGS COMES IN TWO DIFFERENT BASE SHAPES -- (_oval_) shape or [_rectangular_] shape; that is when looking into the purse at the bottom area OR the bottom of the purse on the outside, it will either have a rounded (oval) shape or a squared off (rectangular) shape to it.

WHAT MAKES MY BAGS MORE ATTRACTIVE (besides the ability to have multiple bags)are the little extras included in the pricing. Many will be ONE OF A KIND (OOAK). Right now some (but soon ALL) will have QUEEN’s CORNER embroidered on the inside lining. Right now some (but soon ALL) will have key lanyards so you never lose your keys again! How about a little sparkle? Some purses have Swarovski elements on them; these are NOT just rhinestones, they are real crystals! A fabric handle is offered for an additional price and depending on availability of coordinating fabrics. Each purse is in some way individual from another. Please read the descriptions/details very carefully as you may have to select a specific Item # at the end of the description.

ABOUT THE MEASUREMENTS: All measurements are approximate and measured in inches. Example: 5 (9 with handle) x 10 x 5 (inches)
The first number (5) is the height of the bag only (from the base to the bottom of the upper ruffle), the second number (9) is the height of the bag from the base up to and including the handle, the third number (10) is the widest dimension (at the base), and the fourth number (5) is narrowest dimension (at the base). Most of these purses are considered “small” to "medium" and will hold a small wallet, a cell phone, and a few other small items.

About

Born to sew and create!

I was born in the late 80s and I was bestowed the name QUEEN at the very early age of 3 or 4. I knew what I wanted and worked at it until I got what I wanted! Doesn't that say it all? While growing up I loved to make things. In my early teens my grandmother (and mother) encouraged me to sew. I made my first quilt at age 13. I then began making my Halloween costumes, which seemed to get more lavish as the years went by!

I had always dreamed of having a shop that would be called THE QUEEN's CORNER -- (the idea of being on the corner of a strip mall).This would be a place where a woman could feel like a "queen for the day". A place for hair, nails, feet, and massages (yet another thing I wanted to be -- massage therapist). This is would be a place for TLC, relaxation, and indulgences in chocolate and spirits! Queen's Corner would also have a place for young children to explore (while mommy is indulging) and a gift shop with trinkets and crafts to buy.

Perhaps, some day, there will be an actual Queen's Corner, but for now... this is the place for some of my crafty things available for purchase.

    Became the "Queen" at the very early age of 3 or 4! Apparently I took center stage (over my two brothers) and had a way about getting what I wanted! :) Now at age 20-something, still AKA Queen, Queenie, and Sergeant Sares...get the picture?

QUEEN’S CORNER – Shop ANNOUNCEMENT

PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE TO READ THIS SHOP ANNOUNCEMENT IN FULL, AS WELL AS MY POLICIES SECTION BEFORE MAKING YOUR PURCHASE! THANKS!

Welcome to the QUEEN’s CORNER. Your place to shop for one-of-a-kind hand-made purses and things! Keep in mind this is a SHOP IN PROGRESS, so be sure to visit us regularly for new items.

I have enjoyed sewing since I was a young teen. With encouragement of my grandmother I made my first queen-sized bedspread/quilt at the age of 13. I have sewn my own clothes and costumes and made custom gifts for babies, friends, and relatives. Every year, my mother and I come up with some type of hand-made creation for Christmas gifts for my cousins and aunts – all made with love and care! BUT, I have to admit – I LOVE PURSES! And, with a little encouragement, here I am with my own web site to share my creations with YOU!

I take pride in what I make and will not sell anything that I wouldn’t carry around myself. What makes my purses so special is that I hand pick each and every fabric myself. Of course, I am glad to help with any special order the same way. I LOVE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF MY CREATIONS! I am intrigued by the idea of changing out the bag portion of the purse in the case of the “interchangeable” purse. To start, purchase your first bag with the handle and then you can purchase additional bags (for different outfits) at a fraction of the original cost. One handle – many bags! Soon, I will also offer to “Make it Your Own” where you will select a fabric (outer and inner) and add your upgrades (ribbons, chains, etc). Maybe you would like some Swarovski crystals to make it shine!

This is a “shop in progress.” Also coming soon, I will soon offer handbags for wedding (Money bag for the bride’s dance, bridesmaids’ gifts, flower girl, and also custom-made bow ties for guys!, etc), quinceaneras, and even handbags for your precious little girl or teen! The possibilities are endless – anything is possible – and I will do my best to make it happen. Contact me directly for your special orders.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Each purse is hand cut and machine made with high-quality Batik, cotton, and/or calico fabrics and canvas. Fabrics have NOT been pre-washed. Purses are designed by color with coordinating lining, and matched with the appropriate handle (that is, gold or silver tone). The “interchangeable” handle is metal and comes in black, silver, gold, and antique brass finishes (as available). SOME purses have my QUEEN’S CORNER emblem machine embroidered on the inside of each purse. (Older purses do not have this... as I said --shop in progress -- and this was one of the progressions I did) (WOW, my own brand name!!!)

WARNING!! While technically the purses are made with washable fabrics, once washed, I cannot guarantee the same appearance due to the fabrication and stiffening process and color fading. (I don’t think I have EVER washed any purse that I have owned!) I will add, though, that the purses are well-sewn (sewn with 4-thread serger) and should stand up to normal wear and tear. Eventually coming to my shop are my RAG designs, and I can tell you that the “RAG” creations look better each time they are washed!

READY-MADE ITEMS are ready to ship upon payment confirmation. Custom orders are welcome. Please keep in mind I may not be able to fill every request, but I certainly will try if I am able to. Custom orders will take longer to process than ready-made items. Estimated time until shipment for a single custom-made item is 3 to 5 days (excluding weekends and holidays) and pending availability of fabric choice. Please contact me with your questions and I will let you know the turnaround time for your order.

A BIT ABOUT "MADE IN THE USA"...
All of my creations are MADE in the USA; in fact, made in good ol' Southern California! UNDERSTAND though that while I take pride in shopping for my products in the USA, as well as promoting businesses in my own city, some products that I use are NOT made in the USA. For example, Gerber diapers (used with the burp cloths) are made in China (SHOCK, huh?). BUT, you can bet that I (or one from my team) created and completed your creation here in the States.

I hope you will enjoy my creations and think of others who might be interested in building their own special collection of interchangeable purses! Please add me to your FAVORITES List. Always check back for the latest in purse fabrics and fashion as well as other "stuff" I have developed! AND… Thanks for stopping by!

PLEASE NOTE: Effective March 1, 2014 the California sales tax charged in shop will be 8%. SALES TAX WILL BE APPLIED TO ALL ORDERS PURCHASED BY CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS!

(PLEASE CONTINUE TO READ MY POLICIES SECTION COMPLETELY FOR MORE DETAILS ON PAYMENTS, SHIPPING, REFUND AND EXCHANGES, AND ADDITIONAL POLICIES AND FAQs – BEFORE MAKING YOUR PURCHASE!)
