handbags & totes

I am delighted to offer you these unique handmade bags.  Each one is designed and sewn by me, often using my 1930's vintage Singer sewing machine.  Old textiles and buttons found at flea markets and tag sales are rescued and used to create a truly special and one-of-a-kind item. 

Thank you for taking a look
