All of my totes have fabric handles that are polypro
webbing All the fabrics will
have some sort of coordinating print. The interior of each
bag is fully line. I put two interior pockets on each side of the
bag. All styles have a zip closure. All
sizes have exterior pockets except the tote bag.
The Barbara Bag
-- I get many requests for a little bag that is what I would call a
"purse". This is a bag that is carried with a short handle.
It doesn't slip over the shoulder. I struggle with this style
because I don't really like to carry it myself, but I know it is
popular. In 2008 I lost a dear friend named Barbara Meserve to
Lung cancer. She was such a wonderful lady, so full of
life. She was a big supporter of my work and a great source of
encouragement to me. As soon as I finished this little purse, I
knew that Barbara would have loved it. She really liked my
smaller shapes. So in honor of Barbara Meserve -- the Barbara bag
was born. As with all my styles, customer wants and needs
influence changes I make in the shapes. The Barbara Bag now has a
32" adjustable strap so it can be worn cross body. It has 3 zip
and 3 open pockets that are asymetrical around the outside. This is pefect for those larger phones, glasses or a check
book. It is a deceptively roomy little bag.
The Bonnie Bag. This is my newest shape. The straps are 1" polypro webbing and adjusts from
30" long to 60". The interior is
pocketed as well.
Tote Bags. I based the
shape of my tote bag on the medium sized LL Bean tote that has been
around for so long. They are approx. 18" wide and 15" high
with a nice roomy 6" bottom. They have interior pockets and a key
fob. I used some reclaimed leather for 2 shoulder straps.
