I have been sewing on and off since high school. I started designing and teaching my purse patterns about three years ago and now have eight purse patterns in addition to a casserole tote pattern and apron pattern. In 2010 I entered the Hoffman Challenge and my Courtney Bag was selected to travel in their trunk show for that year. I love designing purses and get my inspirations from family, friends and just my own imagination. I really enjoy showing other sewers how to put them together and seeing the fabrics they choose to make my purses their own designs.
