Handmade bags and backpacks crafted one at a time.

Hi! I'm Kristina Panos from Purses by Panos.

I've been sewing since I was a little kid, though I really got into it about twelve years ago. Along the way I made some smaller bags, and eventually made SewDemented's Sew Together bag, which is like a cross between an old-fashioned doctor's bag and a tackle box.

I got serious with bag making after I bought my first tiny backpack. I was disappointed by the lack of pockets, structure, and a lining. I thought, 'I can make my own tiny backpack that's better than this!' and away I went. Soon, I branched out to handbags and full-size backpacks.

Today I make everything from 8" zipper bags to fanny packs, shoulder bags, and totes to tiny and full-size backpacks! I am more than happy to make a custom order for you, so just let me know when you'd like to get started designing!
