Announcement   I'm Patti O'Day; I make bags and other accessories that are kind to your back and neck. They are one of a kind, made from upholstery fabrics and soft leathers. I love making custom items!

I have back and neck issues, so tend towards smaller sizes, lighter fabrics and less metal ornaments. My slogan is “Be kind to your back and neck—carry a lighter bag.”

My shop is smoke and pet-free.

I design my own patterns, make custom orders or use commercial patterns. Since leather hides are so expensive, I tend to make mostly custom pieces in leather, and have several colors available.

I needed some lipzips with a longer cord, so I contacted Patti about a custom order. She got back to me almost immediately, and we went back and forth with emails until she was sure I had exactly what I wanted. The three custom lipzips I've received are even more beautiful than they show in pictures. The material is high-quality, the cords match perfectly. Less than a week after I put in the custom order, I've received my lipzips, and could not be more happy with the high quality of work and personalized service provided. I highly recommend bagsbypattio for your needs.

About

Be kind to your back and neck, carry a lighter bag!

My doctor told me to stop carrying the big leather bags with all the metal details, because the weight was hurting my back and neck. I started making fabric handbags and fell in love with the craft.
I like working with upholstery fabrics, as they are sturdier and usually factory-treated for stain-resistance. I make my own patterns, use commercial patterns and create custom designs based on customer need. I also work with soft leather, but limit that to custom orders due to limited storage and budget.
I love when people tell me that they've had one of my purses for many years and still love it. I work very hard to keep the materials and construction at the highest levels.
So if you want to give your back and neck a break, try wearing a lighter handbag!

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    I started making handbags in 1975 when my son was small. As he got older, I had to get a "real job", but returned to it when I retired. I love fabrics-- textures, combining patterns and colors, and making something flat into a 3 dimensional piece.

Shop policies

Last updated on January 26, 2016
I personally design, select quality fabric and notions, and individually craft each piece on my shop site. I constantly strive to improve the methods, appearance and materials so that I can provide the best quality product. I take pride in making the highest quality items that will be used for many years to come.
My products are made from upholstery fabric, faux leather or soft leather; all are lined. I will happily accept custom orders!

Shipping
All of the bags featured on the shop will ship within 1 business day, custom-made orders will take longer.
I use the U.S. Postal Service for most shipping: USPS Priority for Continental US and First Class for everywhere else. But, First Class charges do not include insurance and are limited to less than 4 pounds. I try to use USPS supplied boxes for Priority; when mailing First Class I have to guess at the size of the box as my box supply is constantly changing.
If interested in another method, picking up yourself or adding insurance, please convo me and I'll change the listing for you.
Priority does not always made imported/exported items arrive quicker due to Customs.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am happy to say that most of my customers are very happy with the quality. In fact, many of them come back to me years later to report that they still have and use bags made by me.
I will happily offer to repair (if possible) in the event that the fault is mine; if it's yours, I will fix it for a small fee. I can modify some items (e.g., add a zipper or magnetic snap) for a reasonable price; if I have the fabric, I can make the straps longer. Some of these modifications are easier to do in progress rather than after the fact.
Additional policies and FAQs
I accept custom orders; depending on my schedule, I can usually turn these around in a week or so. It might take longer if I need to order fabric or notions.
