This neat and stylish little handbag fits snuggly under your arm, but is still large enough to carry all your essentials (and a little bit more!) It also closes with a satisfying chunky zip. I designed and made it from a wonderful velvet remnant out of my own special stash. It’s quite difficult to capture on a photo, but it is a beautiful pattern of harlequin triangles, with a burnished and hand printed feel. It is in a soft colourway of brown, bronze, beige and fig.

The velvet has first been stitched onto canvas to give it some body, but is still a soft and slouchy little bag.
It measures 27 cm along the top, and the height is 21 cm.
It widens to 32 cm along the bottom, with a tuck at each end giving it a base of 4 cm wide.
There is a beige chunky zip opening of 27 cm, and an internal pocket measuring 12 cm by 15 cm, so you need never rummage for your keys again.
There are two shoulder straps each measuring 68 cm.
The bag is lined with a dark brown artificial silk fabric, and it is finished off with my own embroidered name tag.
Please dry clean this bag if necessary.

I like to reuse as much as possible. Your bag will arrive wrapped in clean, recycled packaging.
It will be posted out as signed for 2nd class Royal Mail, and will therefore require a signature on arrival.


I was invited to a wonderful fabric remnant sale in a Design shop in my home town of York. This is one of the fabulous pieces I found that wintery evening, and cycled home with on my bike. There was just enough fabric to make into this sweet but practical little shoulder bag, and a matching clutch bag, which is also in my shop right now.
