the bag lady - Crochet

the bag lady


I design and make top quality handbags and small accessories in crochet and fabric. All products handmade in Carshalton.


I AM TAKING A BREAK FOR A FEW MONTHS. BACK IN 2019

I offer a range of hand crocheted bags in 100 percent wool, wool blends and acrylics, as well as bags in fabric and felt. The bags are designed and made by myself and bring a contemporary twist to this wonderful ancient art of crochet. All have a top quality finish and are fully lined with internal pockets and either a zipper or velcro fastening. My bags are stylish, practical, affordable and unique.

I like to think of my bags as occasion bags as their uniqueness make them just right for that special occasion but they are also absolutely versatile and great for everyday use as well as stuffing into hand luggage for a week or weekend away. The bags retain their shape and can be washed.

My smaller hand crocheted items are clutches and cosmetic bags which are embellished with sequins, buttons or other finishes, giving each one a special original feature.

My fabric bags are in a range of fabrics and are accessorized with hand crocheted trims to highlight their originality.

I was taught crochet by my mother and have always enjoyed this craft. I hope that you will enjoy looking at and buying my designs.
