The Rag Bag has been a part of our family for generations.
Grandma grew up during the depression era where saving and reusing was critical. She sewed clothes and other essentials from recycled feed sacks and used clothing to save money.
As a kid my mom did the same for our clothes. I learned to sew at an early age and the Rag Bag was my greatest resource. The fabric was free and it didn’t matter if I cut out of the middle or didn’t finish the project. This freedom to experiment only made creativity easier.
In my quest to make the “perfect purse” I use my own Rag Bag to create original designs.

I once was:

A lady's suede vest and fur collar. I now rest on the arm of a lady from California
