Hi! Thank you for visiting my Etsy Shop!

Handmade in a happy studio on a sunny little hill in southwestern Pennsylvania, my bags and belts are not formula productions and patterns. Fabrics and ribbons pop up in my line of vision, and inspire an idea or two. Sometimes subdued, sometimes brash, - always colorful, seldom restrained--and sometimes surprisingly "cool".

About the quality--be aware that my 10th grade Sewing 101 teacher's voice continues to haunt me when I'm tempted to take a shortcut. Construction techniques err on the side of durability.

Handbags, totes, and purses are double or triple reinforced in areas of stress (at the handles and bottoms).

Fabric belts have 4 rows of top stitching in addition to the construction seams.

Ribbon belts are made from heavy cotton linen blend "tapes" purchased either new (usually Germany) or vintage.
