Simple Fleur Tote











A return customer was looking for something simple to carry various items to work with her. The dimensions she gave fit the medium Fleur tote perfectly.
Great for a shopping tote- bring your own bag- toss it in the trunk and pull out as needed!

Save the Planet Zelda Messenger Bag






I found this fabric in an on line auction and was thrilled to get it. It's a home decor weight print, that I believe is from the 60's. The messages and motifs seem to be right out of that time. It would be a great bag for an ecologist or environmentalist

Janet and her custom Honeysuckle
















I worked closely with Janet to create her dream bag. There were a lot of features she wanted so that her bag would be super organized. I added a zippered divider inside, lots of extra pockets, pockets on the outer sides and a back zippered pocket. She likes to carry her bag on her arm, so I made the handles nice and short for that purpose.

She loves it and sent me a photograph to prove it!

Unhappy Hour Custom Britta Tote








As regular readers know, I started selling on line on eBay. Some of my best customers found me there. Although I closed my eBay store over a year ago, I still have a profile there that allows past customers to find my new shop. I am always so gratified that people will take the time to track me down!

This customer, in Germany, did just that. She bought a couple of things from me over the years. When she came to the new shop she saw this Unhappy Hour print and wanted it on a Britta Tote. I love working with this fabric , it's such a fun motif, and really works well on some of my bags


Here's what she said :

Hi Zoe,

The Unhappy Hour Bag came today and I really like it.
It is very well finished- with unbelievable lots of zippers. You are really the zipper-queen of USA.
I hope you have good success in the future , as you deserve it....
I shall keep a eye on your products and my wish for a new bag style would be a funky backpack one day.
Thanks and up to soon...

Flappers Morphin Lynx Deluxe, Mistee iPhone purse and kind words!



♥!!! I don't know how I've gone this long without these bags. Sizes are perfect! I've NEVER been one to carry a big bag, but now that I have this Lynx, I am reformed. I have three young sons, so this bag is filled with all kinds of cool stuff for all of us daily, no matter where we go... books, magazines, snacks, my embroidery supplies, laptop... (I work online), water, matchbox cars, hand wipes, my MISTEE, everything! Really, I don't know how I've been walking around with tiny bags all this time. Bonus: I love this print so much. The colors are so pretty in person. I'm already looking forward to shopping for fall versions of these items. Thank you!

Unique Passport Pouches-The Traveler,fairies, bats, skulls, Day of the Dead, batik, Japanese,dragonflies, flowers, peace sign






































With the summer travel season just around the corner I thought it was time to add some new Travelers to my inventory.
I tried to do a nice eclectic mix, so there would be something for every taste


Two inside pockets, and the zippered pocket on the back allow plenty of room for carrying important documents. There is a cord lock on the string so you can change the length.
You can find them in the shop here:
