One bag, two looks! Keep the bag folded over for a more petite, trendy look and with a quick click of the clasps it turns into a more roomy messenger style bag. The bag not only offers versatility in use, but in construction as well. Dress it up with home decor fabric, high-end gold grommets and fancy locking gate rings, or simplify it using brass/silver grommets and key rings! Or, you can go middle of the road with regular gate rings. Make the bag fit your budget and style!

After having my first child I decided to give up my long-time career in Manhattan in order to stay at home. I am now a full-time Mom to the two most precious little girls and a wonderfully supportive husband who make me smile each and every day. Sewing has been a long-time hobby of mine, and I love to create beautiful things in my "free" time. Sewing is not only my creative outlet, but has transformed into a successful home-based business. I'm so thrilled that I am able to share my passion with you!
