Handcrafted bags created for you in beautiful Kentucky

La Grange, Kentucky | 35 Sales

Announcement    I have an important announcement, especially for all those of you who have purchased from my shop over these few years and given me great reviews. In a very short time you will no longer see any items in my shop. This is because, as of November I will be selling directly from my own website. Since Etsy went public, it seems they are more interested in dividends to their investors than they are in supporting the small business artisan. As a result, I have chosen to leave this platform for selling my bags. If you are local to Central Kentucky, I will continue to sell my bags at Gallery 104, on Main St in La Grange. You can also follow me on Instagram @loiselizabethdesigns and Facebook @loiselizabeth. Look for my website to go live sometime in November www.loiselizabethdesigns.com! You can also still email me at lestickler [!at] gmail.com. I hope I can continue to serve you with beautiful one-of-a-kind handbags, made from reclaimed materials!

    Making handmade handbags from refashioned materials

    Welcome to loiselizabethdesigns!

     
    Classic handbags with an artsy upcycled twist are what I make now.

     
    Take a peek at a few bags--you'll find surprise pops of color in the linings, abundant inner pockets, quality fittings and findings.

     
    Why upcycling? Upcycling stirs my creative juices and satisfies my New England don't-throw-it-out roots. And you get a one-of-a-kind bag. Why make the same thing over and over when I can make you an original design from a found treasure?

     
    In the Kentucky sewing room where I make these bags for you, a beautiful wooden table made by my talented son holds my new semi-industrial Juki. My one-hundred-year old Singer stands nearby. 

     
    Before bags, it was wedding dresses in New Jersey on that antique Singer workhorse with its leather crank belt!

     
    Along the way, I navigated the zippers and angles of home decor sewing, too.


    And before home decor, I sewed my own clothing, and before my own clothing, I sewed by hand for my dolls.

     
    I've outgrown the dolls, but not the skills. The artistic skills that empower me to do this come from my creator God, inherited from my talented Father whose hobby was building furniture and my talented mother who ran a bridal business known as The Parson's Wife for a number of years. Thanks, Mom, for launching five sewing sisters on a path of self-sufficiency and grace. 

     
    So, enjoy loiselizabethdesigns. Let's upcycle your look with a one-of-a-kind bag you won't find anywhere else!
