About

...

Creativity is as basic to me, as breathing. If I am not knitting or sewing, you might find me coloring with my kids, planning our next home improvement project, or baking.

Sweet Gracie Mae was born out of my desire to create, and to share my creations with others. It is named for my daughter, who inspired me to knit, and who, through her own imagination and flare, fuels my creative spark, on a daily basis.

In the beginning, many of my shop items were variations on things that I had made for my children. Over time, my sewing passion has evolved, and I am now primarily focusing on bag making. Like many women, I LOVE bags and can never have enough. I change my bag depending on the time of year, the occasion, or how long I will be out (the Sling Bag is my go-to bag for long days of shopping). I love how changing a fabric can change the "feel" of a bag, and truly enjoy creating bags that make women happy and more organized!

Everything here at Sweet Grace Mae is handmade by me, in my home, where I am surrounded by the beautiful, inspiring landscape of Vermont. Sweet Gracie Mae is a one-woman, handmade enterprise. I curate and/or write patterns, pick out materials (often with input from my daughter Grace), buy supplies, make all items start to finish, take and edit photos, write listings, and wrap/ship packages. When you email or message me, you get me, and only me.

I love crafting beautiful and practical handmade bags and handknit treasures. I look for inspiration everywhere I go, and am always on the lookout for new ideas. My shop listings are always expanding and reflect what is currently inspiring me. Whether an item is for a child or an adult, each is created with thought and care, with the hope that it will be cherished, for years to come.

    I love to create, and although I have never considered myself an "artist", I have always enjoyed spending my free time in an artistic way. As a child, I loved sketching and painting, and also dabbled in hand embroidery and machine sewing.

Welcome to Sweet Gracie Mae, where you will always find something special and unique.

Everything I sell is handmade by me, in my home, in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont. I am working to build my shop offerings, and am always on the lookout for new patterns to introduce or fabrics to use. I will be introducing at least one new bag style each month through the Spring, so be sure to check back!

I curate and/or write patterns, pick out materials (often with input from my daughter Grace), buy supplies, make all items start to finish, take and edit photos, write listings, and wrap/ship packages. When you email or message me, you get me, and only me. Sweet Gracie Mae is truly a one-woman, handmade enterprise!

Please look through my sold, as well as my current listings, and be sure to convo me if there is something you would like that you don't see listed. Most bags can be made with any of the other fabrics in my shop or listed on my Facebook page. Custom orders are welcome, and are a great idea when looking for a personalized gift. Send me a message if you have an idea, and we can work together to make a bag customized just for you.

For the first look at new items, fabrics, sales, discounts, and giveaways, be sure to "like" me on Facebook (facebook.com/sweetgraciemae).

All returned items must be in ORIGINAL, UNUSED condition. Once the item has been received, your payment will be refunded (minus the original shipping cost).
