Get to Know

I learned to sew the old fashioned way, using my grandmother\'s techniques. Holding on to these techniques allows me to create products that are truly one-of-a-kind.

I make distinctive purses from a variety of materials, including recycled denim, cloth-wrapped clothesline, quilted cotton, and hand-selected fabrics and embellishments. Most purses are designed without using a pattern, so you are assured to have an original and unique product. In fact, my daughter-in-law often sends me pictures of purses she likes and then I recreate them with a flair that reflects her personality.

In addition to making purses that are sure to be the envy of your friends, I specialize in creating both handmade porcelain dolls and cloth dolls. Of course, no doll would be decent without its own designer clothing! Costumes are each handmade and tailored to the personality of your doll. I can also make miniature purses to add the final touch to any doll costume! Don\'t forget the little ones in your family~ I love to sew fabric dolls for children to play with. I embroidery the faces so there are no loose or breakable parts.
