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.    It is a deceptively roomy little bag.

The Commuter.  This is my largest of the traditional size bags.  This has a 2" polypro or reclaimed seatbelt strap that adjusts from 36 inches to 72 inches.  Can be worn as a shoulder bag, cross body or as a backpack. The exterior has at 8 pockets; 4 that zip, 4 that are open.  The lining also has 4 zipped pockets. I've added 2 grab handles centered on either side of the bag as well.   This is the perfect bag to carry a small laptop.

Tablet.  This is a flat bag.  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.
