This is a custom piece that I made for Liev's incredibly awesome Aunt Rachel...she generously gifted me with some stunning brocade and requested a small clutch bag "as she carries very little"...

The bag is eight inches wide at the opening, ten inches wide at the bottom, and five inches deep. There is a hinged spring action metal frame in the interior at the top.

This was a custom pairing and I had enough left for a second bag.

This is Alexander Henry's "Tattoo" print on black. The reverse is a textured wool blend in a beautiful lipstick red shade. The button is round black acrylic.

Due to the nature of the fabrics, this bag is dry clean only.


Yo ho ho

This following came about after Liev asked to "help make a bag". His love of all things piratical helped, and he chose the fabric.

This is a small reversible bag- one side is Alexander Henry's "Jolly Roger" print, while the reverse is a black and white checkerboard cotton.

The button is a small skull- a recent purchase and perfectly appropriate.



I acquired some bamboo handles and I wanted to make a smaller, simplistic bag.

It is 15.5 inches long, 10 inches wide and 10.5 inches deep. There is a center divider inside the bag, which is made from a vintage white and mulberry-colored batik.



The fabrics used for this bag were gifted to me by the incredibly awesome Steph (see her talented work here)...they completely compliment each other.

The owl fabric is a print by Amy Schimler for Robert Kaufman called "On a Whim", and the reverse is a texturally fantastic yarn-dyed cotton stripe. The button is acrylic and perfectly matched.



This is another fabric from Anna Maria Horner's universally beloved Chocolate Lollipop collection, called "Billowy Petals". This is a large bag which fully reverses to a bright pink cotton.

The button is vintage acrylic from the 60's.
