Maybe chains don't excite most people, but to a purse seller, good ones are hard to come by! I love making my own sturdy, high quality chains.
Add a simple chain to your order for a classy addition to your purse.
Here's an embroidered label in action. This stripe fabric was too busy to embroider on directly, so I made a separate label. Off to a bride!

Creativity brings me such joy that I can't imagine a life without sewing

I learned to sew from my mother as a child, but didn't really learn to love it until after college graduation. With a new baby and an excess of time, I brought out my machine again. Armed with the internet and both my mother and mother-in-law just a phone call away, I started a series of projects from baby clothes to quilted wall hangings to cycling clothing for my husband! The quest for the perfect diaper bag was lengthy but very instructive, and set the groundwork for Toriska Bags & Crafts. Most of all my projects were directed by the need to economize. I derive so much joy from saving money through making my own clothing, gifts, toys, home decor, diapers, etc. And since my sewing interests have been so varied, my skills are broad. I love looking around my home and seeing so many things that have been lovingly created by my own hands.

When I decided to open an Etsy shop, I turned to purses, since they were the only thing I enjoyed making over and over without losing interest. It's been an awesome journey as my skills have increased and my view of myself has evolved from "wife and mother" to "wife, mother of three, and purse designer." I love this business and the handmade aesthetic.

Will I ship to other addresses? Yes, I am happy to ship to a different address, but it is simplest for both of us if you enter in that address at checkout.
