Announcement   Hello
Thank you for coming to my store; please feel free to browse. I will be happy to answer any questions.

I was fortunate to be featured on "Good Morning Texas" recently:

http://www.wfaa.com/mb/entertainment/television/programs/good-morning-texas/brigid-brammer-bags/308240059


My goal is to add some fun and environmental responsibility to shopping, travel, storage, school, vacations and travel with my fabric tote bags...easy to fold and throw in your purse, backpack, briefcase. Alternatively, they also make great decorative storage.
I have added new lines this year: yoga mat bags and diaper/whatever bags.

Some of my bags feature at least 50% repurposed fabrics, usually in limited quantities... so while I am happy to make a custom bag, or a photo bag, please understand the fabrics might be different. Others have original photographs on the bag

You will find me at the Denton Community Market(9am-1pm) in Denton, Texas on Saturday mornings between April and November; this year I will also be at the Carrollton Farmers Market most Sundays (10-3pm. )

Throughout the year my bags may also be purchased at Scrap Denton,(Denton), The Dime Store (Denton) and Santa Barbara Museum of Art Gift Shop in Santa Barbara, California.


thanks
Brigid

About

From dogs to bicycles to bags

Having always had a soft spot for dogs and bicycles it was easy to gravitate to those fabrics on my return to sewing several years ago.
But I wanted something more too....I love repurposing anything and everything...I love the challenge of figuring out what I could make with something that's outlived its present use.
One day I saw a shirt...it was too big but I loved the fabric...what a great bag that would make.....and that was the start....Vintage tablecloths remind me of the kitchen and dining tables at home....who had to sit at the table until they finished their vegetables??? (I hated silver beet..like spinach)..Should be an unpleasant memory but really isn't...we had a budgie who started screeching and talking everytime the tablecloth went on the table....

Unfortunately not many men's shirts have dog or bicycle fabric so I had to turn back to new fabrics ...but I try to use repurposed fabrics when I can. I sometimes call these bags my "Half and Half" bags...

My other love is photography...although you probably wouldn't know it from my product photography right now...my biggest failing is "I hate doing stuff I have to do"!! I'm afraid it reflects in my bag photos.....My goal is do better....I had this great idea to shoot my bags hanging from the handlebars of one of our bikes...yes...my husband has a bike thing too....I have to shoot the bags at a certain time of the day when the light is just right...difficult when I work five days a week and the best time is just after sunrise!!! And of course our dog, a rescue German Shepherd named Charlie, believes if I'm outside I should be playing with him..now I drag a small ladder outside and can prop it up against a tree (so am not so reliant on time of day).

It's a full life...and I hope to do my part in helping us preserve this beautiful world ....how? By using a fabric bag instead of a one-time plastic bag..by brightening up a dull day with a cheery bag ...by bringing back memories of home and long ago kitchens with the vintage tablecloths...and finally...my dream...using photos to create fun bags .
Thanks for listening

I ship Ist class or Priority mail flat rate packages within the United States.(whatever is the least expensive and will arrive in a timely manner)

Please wash all bags in cold water. The bag can be machine washed (cold water and gentle detergent, no bleach) but please hang or lay flat to dry.
Additional policies and FAQs
I would be happy to make any special order bags including photo bags should you have a favorite photo you would like on a bag.
Please consider the size of the original photo and how big you would like it. For example...the largest I can print is an 8 x 10 inch photo. If the photo requested is taken with a cell phone (2-3 megapixels.) the photo would probably be at it's best at 6 x 4 inches, might look a little grainy at 8 x 10. I use "colorfast" cotton for the photos; washing in cold water is best. Thanks.
