Today's fabric choice for a custom order - the black is really going to make that purple textured velvet POP! and I'll make two if the fabric allows...
Shiny selection of fabrics for pleated puffy clutch/wristlet/handbags. Yum!
Working on a few stock kindle covers, and couldn't resist cutting out a bookish messenger bag too! Can't wait to get this finished...

About

Making the world prettier and more practical, one lovely bag at a time!

I started sewing bags because I fell in love with my vintage machine - a lovely old Novum given to me by a gorgeous lady I know. I didn't want it to just sit around wasting its time, it was too beautiful for that, so I learned to sew!

My favourite thing about making fabric bags is that they're so useful. In my own collection, even if I'm not using a bag for going out with, it'll still hold things for me, they're such a great tool for tidying a busy house, as well as carrying stuff around in the big wide world!

During the sewing process, I take pride in the little details - making the key-ring loop inside the purse out of the same fabric as all the pockets and straps for instance, or lining up the pattern on a flap closure with the main body of the bag.

I love making bags that stand out - with bold prints or painted details or embroidery embellishments and designs of my own.

And that moment when I turn a bag the right way and finally get to see if it's how I imagined? It's like magic!

    I live here in Wiltshire with my son, a cat, and a massive hoard of fabric. I work in a nursery learning from small people when I'm not sewing. When I'm not sewing, I'm running, or crocheting, or reading, or cooking, or dreaming of the sea.

Welcome to Bags of Loveliness:) I like to find beautiful fabrics, treat them with respect and let them speak for themselves in my simple bags and...things. I hope you'll enjoy looking at my projects at least half as much as I love creating them!
When I'm sewing, I live in the cupboard under the stairs; it's just like Harry's, except it doesn't have a door on it, and I have a cat instead of an owl for company.
