"I could do that!"

My story started in 2011 when I saw some - badly made - handmade bags on a craft fair and thought "I could do that much better!". I had been sewing for many years already; I initially started as a teenager with making my own clothes and later began on homeware, but apart from some skirts and the occasional curtains or pillows I didn't do much with my skills up to then.

So I got myself some easy bag patterns to start with - tote bags, shopping bags etc - and then slowly started on more complex models. I am now really passionate about all kinds of bags and always try to come up with new styles. I also love to do gadget covers, I make these for phones, tablets, DS or anything you need a cover or a holder for.

I love colourful, unusual fabrics but have also discovered a love for Harris Tweed. The texture and the colours are just amazing and I love working with tweed.

All my items can be made to order, most of them in various sizes and of course in a fabric or pattern of your choice. Just ask me anytime if you have questions!

Welcome to Mel's Enchanting Creations!

I love sewing and particularly bags, purses, organizers and holders. Most of the patterns I use are my own design, but I also use other patterns from designers like Lisa Lam.

I am passionate about animals and wildlife which is reflected in most of my items, but I also love to use unusual patterns and recycled or upcycled fabrics which can't be found on the shelves.

All my items can of course also be custom made for you - most of them also in various sizes. Just ask me anytime if you have any questions or requests.
