Four New Handbag Hooks to Finish the Year

Just a small update this month to finish the year. Four new handbag hooks have been added to the shop with matching pouches. Shop now >>

Handbag hook keyrings have been popular this year, so much that I've sold out of the supplies! Look for more keyrings to come in early next year.

These hooks pair perfectly with other items in my shop for those who love a bit of matchy matchy.

Have a great holiday season and stay tuned for lots of new creations come 2018.
And just a secret tip ... next year I'll be running special monthly offers for newsletter subscribers only. If you haven't already sign up here so you don't miss out!

This month I've also added new totes to the store. They are available in three fun contrasting patterns and feature a front and back slip pocket. The pockets close discreetly with magnetic snaps and inside there are open pouch pockets and a zippered pocket. Shop the new style now >>

Colourful Coin Purses

After a sell out of coin purses, it was time to restock this month. With eight fresh new patterns hitting the store, there's one to suit everyone. Take a look in store now

The coin purses are a great little size for holding little bits and pieces. They also feature a card slot and close with a secure zipper.

A look behind the scenes. Once the boring cutting stage was over it was time to hit the sewing machine.

So many pretty fabrics, how can you pick just one?

Handbag Hooks are Back!

My most popular product has a big restock this month with sixteen hooks joining the shop.

A mix of eight with keyrings and eight without and in an array of colours - there's one to suit everyone.

With Christmas fast approaching, handbag hooks also make a great gift. Perfect for those who have everything!

So next time you're out just unravel your hook, place on the table and let your bag hang securely. No more bags on the floor or crammed on your lap.

A Popular Shape Returns - New Messenger Satchels

At the Etsy Community Market last month there was a stand out silhouette. Messenger bags were a hit with their simple shape and multiple pockets. So this month I decided to add more to the shop in bright coloured prints and a smaller bag.

As usual, the bags are made up of lots of different pieces and hardware. Once it was all sewn together, the bags feature a large front slip pocket, a magnetic snap closing the flap and an adjustable strap. Inside you'll find extra pouch pockets plus a zippered pocket.

And Riley was there keeping an eye on my progress along the way - from the cutting to the sewing.

The Wallet with it All

A few months ago I worked with a customer to create the perfect wallet for travel. It was made with seven card slots and pockets to hold a phone, money, passport and a boarding pass. News spread of the new design and I was kept quite busy with custom orders.

Now you can purchase your own wallet with three different prints added to the store this month.

Fill it up and off you go!

New Totes Featuring a New Product

This month I've created three new tote bags that come with a little something extra - a matching handbag hook! Available in three gorgeous prints, the bags feature a detachable hook that blends in like a matching bag charm when not in use.

Inside the bags you'll find interior pockets including a zippered one and two pouch pockets, great for your phone and keys. Two straps makes this a comfortable fit on the shoulder and a secure zip closure finishes it off.

Stay tuned next month - this type of handbag hook will be making it's first solo appearance so you'll be able to add one to all of your handbags!

The Double Flap Cross Body Bag

New cross body bags have hit the store this month! The bags feature a flap pocket on both the front and the back with a zip closure to the main compartment. With an adjustable strap they can be worn across the body or on the shoulder.

I received plenty of help this month too (well if sitting there staring is helping...). Once I have a design ready it's time to look through my pattern folder for the pieces I'll need.

Then it's time to find fabrics to use.

And next up is cutting!

I even got some help writing this...

Now I'm off to design some tote bags for next month... wonder if I'll get any help? 
In the meantime check out my new bags here

Bright and Colourful Handbag Hooks

My most popular item is handbag hooks! Especially around Christmas time, as they make great little presents. So this year I will be adding more hooks more often to keep up with demand.

This month I've created eight new colours, all bright and unique. It's been challenging to keep them all one of a kind as I'm starting to run out of different fabrics but I always manage to find something I haven't used yet!

As with all my creations, they all require a bit of editing on the computer once the photos have been taken. Here's a peek behind the scenes...

Handbag hooks are great when you're out and about at cafes and restaurants, you don't need to keep your bag on your lap or place it on the floor.

Shop now and see the new handbag hooks in store, I'm off to work on new cross body bags which will be my focus for next month!

Wallets in Store Now!

This month I have been working on new wallets. Wallets are my most viewed items in my Etsy store but it's always a challenge to come up with new designs. However this new design is one of my favourites and the idea just flowed.

My original design on the computer.

Picking the fabrics was lots of fun too, I love the colour combination of the three.

Behind the scenes...

All the pieces to put the wallet together.

Testing out the card slots...

And of course a helper... Luna was guarding the zips until I made my choice.

The wallets feature twelve card slots in the fold out front flap and a large zippered pocket at the back. All three colours in my Etsy store now.
Next month I'll be working on new handbag hooks!

New Messenger Bags

This month I've added three new messenger bags to my Etsy store in three basic but solid colours.

During the month I got a bit of help from Riley, my Selkirk Rex cat but he still left most of the work up to me!

Lots of pieces go into each bag as well as a few bits of hardware. Here's the before shot.

And the three after shots, three bags all finished and now in my Etsy store.

Shop now and stay tuned for new wallets coming next month!
