How Bags of Elegance was born

https://www.etsy.com/uk/your/shops/Bagsofelegance/story

Hi, I am so happy you found me, Bags of Elegance came about in February 2011 after finishing full time work. I decided it was time to take some time out and re-evaluate my work life balance. I have been sewing since I was about 10 years old, dabbling with fabrics and making clothes for my dolls. I taught myself how to use a sewing machine, although to be frank, sewing is in my blood, as my Grandma was a tailoress. The passion for fabrics and design grew over the years, and I started to make all my own clothes as well as some for other people. I love the whole individuality and satisfaction of making my own garments and wearing them, knowing that nobody else has anything quite like it, this concept now carries through my bag making as the majority of my bags are one of a kind or very limited editions

My first sample bags were made from some second hand curtains from a local charity shop, and after showing them around my family, and getting a good response, Bags of Elegance was born.

I love to experiment with different bag designs and fabrics
Bags of Elegance gives me the opportunity to work from home in my own time, designing and making beautiful bags which I hope you will love as much as I love making them.
