LOVE this seller's handbags. Among the highest quality items on Etsy and easily as well-made as anything you can buy at Fossil or any place with top quality bags. I love the fabrics. They're always tasteful and well-paired (and it's not easy to find quiet, pretty fabric bags on Etsy. Too many fabrics are loud and garish.) I also love the roominess and all the little pockets to organize items. I like having a crossbody strap on a purse that is neither so tiny you can't fit anything in it or so big you feel like you're walking around with a suitcase. This is a nice size for a crossbody handbag. I am a repeat buyer of this seller and it's because of the reliability and quality of her work. Highly, HIGHLY recommended.

About

Rescuing fabric for a useful life.

I love fabric and have collected it most of my life. The day came to actually do something constructive with my holdings. I needed an apron, so I designed a pattern and made one, and one thing led to another and I became an apron seller at the local farmers' market until I ran through my biggest pieces of fabric. This left me with a lot of small pieces perfect for making potholders. After using all the fabric I had on hand, I've been gathering rescued fabric from yard sales, thrift stores and the holdings of friends and neighbors.

Coming from a long line of women who made useful things and reused materials as a matter of course, this was a natural fit. Working with fabrics from different eras allows for the wonderful opportunity to play with a much broader palette of colors, patterns, and textures, creating a more unexpected yet familiar look than if I were just buying contemporary fabric.

I make things in a way that seems sensible to me in how they look, feel and work. Engaging eye, hand and mind to make something that is distinctive, satisfying and well made. I value hand work, creativity and figuring out sustainable practices.
My hope is you will find the results useful and pleasing.
