Hi all, as many of you know, I create sewing patterns and projects from all the bags, purses and accessories that I make. Problem is, I don’t often get around to selling the actual finished bags these days. When I first started the sewing pattern business, I did also sell the bags (one bag even went to the designer of the fabric that I’d used – the lovely Kate Spain – now that was special).
Well, I was trying to tidy things the other week (to make room for all the projects I need to make for my new book) and was quite taken aback by the amount of bags that are piling up around me and even taking over my bedroom wardrobe! I know a girl can never have too many bags but really, I have too many!
…and so, HandmadeBagsbySusie has been borne on Etsy, just launched yesterday. This shop will run alongside my sewing pattern shop and will feature any finished bags that I have available for sale. Some will have appeared in Sewing World magazine (some had the front cover spot) and others will be from my sewing pattern designs.
I hope you like what you see, maybe treat yourself or consider purchasing a special handmade gift for love ones. Each bag or accessory will also boast my unique little metal tag, identifying it as a SusieDDesigns original (how posh is that?)
