Make bags that speak for you!

Quilting is my passion and I would have never thought that I will love making bags as much as I love making quilts.

With so many beautiful fabrics and so many design possibilities, I think anyone could enjoy making bags.

You could show off a wonderful and unique creation after just a few hours of work !
