Welcome to Borealis Bag Lady on Etsy and thank you for visiting my shop. My name is Nicole and I am the owner, designer and creator of Borealis Bag Lady bags.

I use my 25 years of sewing experience to create quality, one-of-a-kind, handmade bags. The fabrics I use are quilt quality, home dec, or high fashion only. Or, If I find a terrific piece of clothing I love to upcycle it into a totally unique bag!


************************ TESTIMONIALS *********************

"I got my wallet the other day (you're quick!) and couldn't be more pleased! The fabric is adorable, the pockets are plenty, and I'm impressed with the quality and durability. I hope to enjoy this for many years to come! thank you!"

"I ordered the McKinley bag for my honeymoon to Hawaii in June and I absolutely loved it! It was the perfect size bag to use as a carry on/beach bag. Nicole does amazing work and she is a pleasure to work with. Not only did she design me the perfect tote for my honeymoon she gave me great tips to take with me as well. This is my second bag I have bought from her and I know for sure it won't be my last. I use them both all the time and get a million compliments. The fabric is gorgeous and fun and the quality is even better :)"

"Nicole, I love my bag! It came out even better than I imagined. I love the fabric, the shape and especially the braided handle. I wore it to my friends birthday party tonight and got several compliments. I have a feeling a few of my friends will be contacting you soon for one of their own. I will definitely be contacting you again. I just need to figure out what I want in the cherry fabric. You were a pleasure to work with. Thanks again for everything!"

"Another beautiful bag! Your workmanship is flawless and I've gotten lots of compliments on the bag. I'm sure I'll purchase another one in the spring"

"Nicole, I received my bag yesterday and wanted to let you know it's absolutely GORGEOUS!! It's so well made and I know my friends are going to ask about it, so I hope to send more people your way. This was my first Etsy purchase and I will definitely be contacting you in the future for more bags. Thanks for your excellent communication too. I'm beyond thrilled with eveything!"

"Absolutely wonderful custom product! Great to work with and friendly customer service. Item is professional quality. Thank you SO much!!"

Thank you for finding the Borealis Bag Lady! I look forward to designing a special and unique bag for you.

I offer over 350 beautifully wild & fun fabric prints to choose from. If you have more conservative tastes I can design your bag as a solid on the outside with a fun print on the inside. Just let me know what prints you are interested in and I will send you some suggestions of what would coordinate well with it.

Each bag is lovingly made by me; please allow 3-4 weeks to complete your custom order. Completed bags from my shop are ready to ship!

You will only find top quality bags here that are individually handcrafted with only the best fabrics, notions and hardware. Each bag is personally designed and created by me, no mass production here! Since they are individually handcrafted, they are considered an original one-of-a-kind and never duplicated exactly so you will have the only one ever!

I stand behind all of my work and do everything possible to make sure you love your custom order bag. Please leave feedback or convo me once you have received your order and I will do the same for you. I ship Priority Mail through USPS from Alaska.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
Payment
Payments are due in full at the time of your order. I currently accept Paypal and Money Orders (post office only). I do not accept checks. Remember, on Etsy you pay each seller individually.
Shipping
Domestic orders are shipped via USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation included. International orders must contact me first for a shipping quote before placing an order, I will then list a reserved listing with the quoted shipping cost for you. International customers are responsible for any additional taxes or fees imposed by the receiving country. Actual item cost will be listed on the custom forms, no exceptions. I can not be responsible for lost packages, once the package is turned over to the post office and has left my hands I am no longer responsible for it. I keep all receipts for proof of shipping. International orders are shipped at your own risk for there is no way to track and confirm shipping and delivery.

Fabric Shipping Costs:
2.25 yards or less = $3.50 First Class shipping
2 yards +10" - 8 yards = $5.60 flat rate priority shipping
8.25 yards - 20 yards = $12.35 flat rate priority shipping
20.25 yards - 30 yards = $17.45 flat rate priority shipping
Additional policies and FAQs
Q. Are Borealis Bag Lady bags washable?

A. Spot clean only and hang dry. My bags are not meant to go through a machine cycle. After they are dry from the spot cleaning, most fabrics can have Scotchgard applied to them again for long lasting protection.
