About

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!
