About this Product

This small hip style bag is made with a native print canvas. I used a tan cotton to line the interior and pockets that matches the exterior and silver hardware.

Features and measurements: Please read these carefully to make sure this bag will meet your needs. Remember... I made this pattern so I can adjust it if you need me to.

Bag body is- 8" tall and 5"wide

Bag body to top zipper- 7" tall and 5"wide

Bottom zipper pocket- 6" tall and 5"wide

Front snap pocket- 5" tall and 5" wide

Back snap pocket- 53/4" tall and 5"wide

Strap adjusts from 27.5"- 53" fully extended

This bag is made to be just big enough to hold the essentials like your phone, keys, cards/cash etc. It's the perfect size for concerts for example... You'll breeze through the bag check process. Though small, this bag, much like some of my other designs, has a Mary Poppins quality to it. You'll be so surprised at how much this little bag can hold.

Meet the Maker

My first sewing experience was when I was about 6 or 7. My mother gave me a little sewing kit and using the fabric from a dress I had out grown, sat beneath the apple tree in our backyard and stitched together my first purse.

Years later in my home economics class, Mrs. Kuesler introduced me to the sewing machine and a hot iron and well.... I knew in that moment I had found my "chocolate" in life. You know, the thing that really gets your creative juices flowing and just down right makes you happy. 

It wasn't until our second child was born that I had the idea to sell some of my homemade creations at our local handcraft market. That was 30 years ago... I am still selling at that same market to date.

Thanks to my customers at the Eugene Oregon Saturday Market who pushed me to go on-line with my products, I now ship my bags all over the world now... It just amazes me. Every sale puts a smile on my face and inspires me to keep creating. It's a blessing, as sewing isn't something I's part of who I am. I can no more stop sewing than breathing, it would seem. 

I thank you for visiting my shop and hope you enjoy what you see! If you do...please share or tell a friend. Word of mouth has kept me in business for 3 decades now and I count my blessings for y'all daily!

I'v seen this persons work, it's excellent quality. The only issue with my purchase was entirely the fault of the us postal service who sadly lost my bag and are now giving me the run around on the insurance this seller was wonderful enough to have put on the package.
