Like a lot of women, I collect the odd handbag or two. I was having trouble finding a good way to store them. In the cupboard they'd gather dust and go unused for seasons at a time because I'd forget they were there, but hanging them on a hook or rod seemed to damage the strap in a lot of cases. I needed to find something softer to hang them on. So, I came up with these handbag hangers. They're really easy to sew, can be hung over a normal picture hook and mean my bags can be a wall feature as well as being really easy to access. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic sewing machine skills including how to sew a button hole. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 8.5"x2"

Recommended with this pattern

  • Two 9"x2.5" strips of thick cotton fabric, plus two 2"x2.5" pieces of the same fabric
  • Two pieces of interfacing the same sizes as above and one button smaller than 1.5"

My dream is to travel the world seeking out local textile traditions and techniques passed down through generations. I want to learn from these makers, share their stories and help to keep their crafts alive. I was taught to knit and sew as a child by my Mum and Nana and have picked up a few more crafts along the way - including patchwork. I started my career as a graphic designer, but moved quickly into management. I've spent the last ten years working for the most amazing company, but since they've been sold to a large, listed international company I've been reassessing what I want to do with my life and realising I want to work in something I've always been passionate about - craft and textiles. I love colour, sunny days, lying on the grass, travel and belly laughs.
