Loretta makes practical bags out of various types of fabric - her choice or yours - in a variety of lovely designs.

My name is Loretta.  I have always spent time sewing and being involved in craft type projects.  I decided to make the bags when I was made redundant from accounts based work.  I began by making our daughter and her friends bags for the craft class they belong to.


I try to spend some time each day sewing in my craft room, which has a lovely view of the garden and get most of my inspirarion when my husband and I go out for walks.


I get a buzz from seeing people's faces when they see my  bags and comment how nice they are.  All the bags are unique and I make sure they are finished to a very high standard.  The bags are made from oilcloth, canvas, satin or cotton and each one has a lining to match or contrast with pockets.


If you would like a bag made, plese contact me; the bag could be made from your own fabric if it is suitable.
