Traditional Purses

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.

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.  These sell for $60 to $80 depending on the fabric they are made from.

Tablet.  This is a flat bag.  It is approximate 11x13.  It has a back outside zip pocket, zip top, pocketed lining, adjustable strap. The front of the bag has 8 pockets.  4 that zip and 4 that are open.  Perfect to carry a water bottle.    These sell for $70.  I also make this bag in a recycled suit version.  That style features the suit pocket  as well as a zipped outside pocket on each side.  These are $70-$90 depending on the fabric they are made from.   I recently redesigned this shape so that it can hold the average size tablet in a case.
