My Mama sews the cutest, funkiest purses and bags. I have 4 unique bags, and I cherish each one! She even made one for my husband, which he uses all the time!
Whenever someone compliments me on my bag I respond proudly,"Thanks! My Mom made it for me!"
My Mama has a passion for sewing and making things, using her own creativity and style. I think it is a beautiful form of art to find second-hand fabrics and scraps, and then create whatever you can imagine out of them. She has been doing this since we were little kids, even though the term upcycling wasn't trending back then. I remember she always had a shirt on that she sewed herself, plus costumes, blankets, curtains, potholders, and whatever else around the house, was made from fabric she put together.
She's been funky and cool even before it was even cool. This is the way she's always been, and I love it. Thanks for our Mama-made bags, Mama! If you ever decide to open up a shop, we will be your first customers!
