Creative Usage - from my hand to yours!

Bags by Bevy! Something I never dreamed would be coming out of my home ~ from my hand into yours..

Hi! My name is Bev Silver (also known as Bevy). I am a stay-at-home mom to three precious little ones and I love being married to the most wonderful man in the world. My husband Scott, fully supports me in this endeavor and "generously" helps me out along the way.

My days are rather busy, with homemaking, but my love for sewing and creating things gets done in my head until I have that (stolen) moment to get it carried out. My love for all of this came about at a young age. Anymore, these days, I usually have to make time for sewing projects. It may be early in the morning, late at night or while the little ones are napping. I'll even take up the offer to have someone come babysit... that's a HUGE help right there.

You may wonder how my little business came into being. I tell you, it was rather unexpected, even for me. One Christmas, I needed to come up with a quick handmade gift for both my mom and one of my sister's, and so with using what I already had around the house (fabrics and such for other intended projects)- the idea for these bags was born.

I would say that the style of the bag has improved and varied over time and yet the overall feeling is the same. Each one is unique in it's own right, handmade and lovingly fashioned with care.
Each bag carries it's own name - adding to it's uniqueness.

No two bags are ever alike!! But they all bear my trade-mark signature... a combination of three ( mostly vintage) buttons.

And now, there are other things added in, as well. Things such as Little Girls skirts, Homespun Baby! Shoes and Clothespin Bags.

    I wasn't really expecting anything like Bags by Bevy to be... it just kind of came to me! I made one or two - because I needed a quick and homemade Christmas gift - and it went on from there...

So you're not sure about using one for a purse. That's okay! here are some other ideas...
* to carry your reading material, Bible, journal * sewing projects * bagged lunch * mini diaper bag for growing toddler * use for your car or locker * gift bag * school *

These are available in several sizes and the ideas are endless...

As mentioned, each bag is unique to it's own self, bearing it's own name (Yes! they are named). The idea of "recycling" comes to mind as I carefully hand select limited sized fabric samples of various upholstry and other materials. I proudly use a combination of three buttons as my signature trademark - located on the front side of each bag.

Unless otherwise indicated, each bag does have a front pocket which most likely will feature some form of handsewing that attaches the pocket to the bag - that being either with a blanket stitch, straight stitch, french knots or any combination of the three.

Also, there is a pocket, of some style or sort, located inside each bag, somtimes as a split, side by side, pocket. Take note of any handsewing and usage of buttons on this pocket as well.

All handles to these bags are considered to be "clutch-style". I do make some larger that manage well over the shoulder, but keep in mind that that particular bag is much larger then, too.

Cleaning your bags:
I would only recommend spot cleaning. Or, if you need to really do a deep clean... consider Dry-Cleaning only. FYI: I did try washing the fabric and drying the fabric on the line - but in bag or purse form, it would be really difficult to get the fabric to dry very well. You have to be really careful if you throw it into the dryer. Just use your own discretion.
