BACKGROUND STORY: The Coconut Grove purse recalls a joyful time with my family. We traveled from our deciduous midwestern domicile to Miami for my brother's wedding at a tropical botanical garden. There, the sun ignited the colors of everything it struck. Leaves gleamed glossy, deep green. Shadows stood cool, and dark beside flamboyant pinks and oranges. It is this riot of color and light that inspires this bag design, as well as the fun I had in Miami. I delighted in visiting my treasured family and reconnecting with old friends. This trip also took my children for their first swims in the ocean. My oldest son brought home a natural sponge he found on the beach. My daughter delighted in a coconut she picked off the sand. I like to think this is a bag to fill with Love and Joy and Wonder. With the exception of mass production, you may sell the finished bags you create from my pattern.

Bag creation captivates me. In 2011, I started selling my bag designs. However, when I realized I most enjoyed experimenting with new designs, and figuring out -- I wonder how to make that? -- I started developing sewing patterns. Translating a physical bag into written instructions and illustrations taps my background in teaching, and experience in graphic design. What begins as a drawing in my sketchbook, morphs through rigorous tests and revisions. What finally emerges, the beautiful creations, singularly interpreted by each maker using my patterns, delights me and inspires me to keep going.
