I love to make custom bags, wallets, and backpacks.
I taught myself to sew when I was eight-years-old after inheriting a vintage Singer sewing machine from my great aunt. I wish I still had that machine! In those days, there were no YouTube videos (or even an intranet) so I learned from classic paper patterns (the kind you get in envelopes) and books from the library.
After many years of sewing clothes (with a quick dabble into quilting), I discovered bag-making about ten years ago and I’ve been HOOKED ever since. I LOVE to make custom bags that are each unique.
Here, I will share some of my projects, some tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years, my favourite bag designers, custom fabric and hardware shops, and more!
Welcome – feel free to look around.
