Situated on a lifestyle block just out of Porirua, Wellington, I have always had a bit of a thing for handbags, yet never found the perfect one - so the bag lady was born! I've since changed names to 'Home Sewn', as I'm also sewing a variety of baby goods and homewards.

All my items are 100% handmade by me, using either fully licensed or my own patterns. I love retro, recycled and bright coloured fabrics, and every bag is unique - not one is the same!
