I began crafting my one-of-a-kind handbags in 2005, mostly because of a longtime interest in repurposing castoff and throwaway items. RagBags are created from a variety of materials, including decorator fabric samples, wool sweaters, carpet pieces, books, game boards, and many other objects – even VHS videotape! Broken jewelry, vintage buttons, and other items are used as embellishments. I am totally self-taught using no patterns and I do all my sewing on a 1958 Singer Featherweight machine.
