Hi. I'm Lisa. I make bags.

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.
