Handmade Bags 


Handmade bags for sale here are usually one of a kind. Some bags look similar at first but there are variations in colours of linings, handles, etc. Most are made from quality cotton fabrics but some may be fully or partially made in cork, pleather, or cotton canvas.

I only buy fabrics in small quantities so there is only enough to make a few bags at the most in any design using the same fabric. I try to vary the details so no two are ever exactly the same. 

This page gives an overview of the varieties of handmade bags currently available on this site. Click the images to visit the shops.


UK orders over £60 FREE postage  otherwise £2.95 per order (see more here) 


Closed clutch wallet with cork

Clutch wallets are currently very popular. They are designed to take the place of a handbag and carry just the essentials - cash, cards, mobile phone and maybe also keys and possibly a lipstick.

Clutch wallets have both a wrist strap and/or a crossbody strap making them even more flexible. More details of their uses can be found on their page.

At present most of the wallets here are Flip Clutch Wallets. Fan Clutches can be found at the foot of the Flip Clutch page.

Express yourself with a fun clutch wallet!


Special Occasion Bags navlink

Special Occasion Handbags add a touch of individuality. They will hold essentials for events such as weddings, a day at the races, or a cruise.

They can also add a bit of something different to everyday. Who wants plain boring when you can have pattern and colour?

There are classic bags with a kiss clasp like the one in the picture. Also small tote style bags with chain handles and squat little bags. Visit the page and see for yourself.


Navigation link for page about small bags and purses

Little coin purses in bright fabrics on jelly frames for those occasions when you just need a few coins - maybe to keep in the car for occasional parking machines?

Also on this page are other small purses on crossbody straps including some for children.


Zippered purse in blue with pink roses for make-up or similar.

A selection of zippered pouches in two sizes and various fabrics.

These are simple and ideal for everyday to hold cosmetics or other small, necessary items. You can never have too many little zipped pouches. All are made in cotton and are washable.


Tote bag in bright canvas

Tote bags are ideal for carrying everyday essential to work or college. They come in various sizes.

A colourful tote can brighten anyone's day. Take one to work and there's a bag big enough to hold those little extras you pop out for during the lunch hour.

Take one to college as a stylish way to carry your books.

Why have ordinary when you can choose colourful?


Safari print carpet bag

Carpet bags are made on frames which allow them to open wide and appear cavernous.

They make ideal overnight bags with a difference. 

I  have a carpet style handbag which I use when I go on holiday as a cabin bag. i don't like to have to carry too much stuff around when browsing the shops at the airport but I do need something which will hold my money, passport, camera, cardigan, laptop and maybe a magazine. My 12" carpet style handbag does all that perfectly and still fits under the seat in front. It also closes securely and sits under my arm with the straps over my shoulder.

As well as bags currently available to buy, this page also gives a brief history of carpetbags and how they came about.

Interested in the History of  Handbags?

If so, if you ever find yourself in Amsterdam, there's a fantastic museum there which claims to be the "Largest Museum of Bags and Purses in the World".

High Tea and lunch is served there in a period style room. There are also various special events.

It's well worth a visit.
