All items are from a "smoke free" home. I LOVE a good mix of old and new, as seen in most of my items, with lots of careful attention paid to detail. My jewelry items are all handcrafted - most of them an extension of my love of hand sewing, with some etched and hammered copper pieces thrown into the mix; clutch/handbags, shoulderbags and travel jewelry bags utilizing vintage and current fabrics are a staple in my crafting; and there may be the occasional primitive doll that shows know the old saying..."Jack of all trades...yadda, yadda, yadda".

I use high quality, 100% cotton quilt weight or home dec fabrics and cotton quilting weight threads (unless otherwise noted in listing), usually with double batting. All major construction seams are double stitched for durability - handles and straps are triple stitched into seams. Free-motion custom machine quilting (when present) is specific to each piece of fabric, making each bag unique.

Vintage fabrics may have some age imperfections, but nothing that will detract from the handbag's beauty and, I won't use a piece of deteriorated fabric. Bags may be handwashed (most can be machine washed) and line dried. ALL of my vintage and home dec fabrics are washed before sewing, mainly checking that the fabrics are "sound" and will continue to wear, but also guaranteeing that you can continue to wash them upon arrival. Ironing on a cotton/steam setting is suggested. A spray of 3M Scotchgard when it arrives may also be used for easy spot cleaning.
