Single-maker Saturday: Bags by Melanie

Hello, friends. I am pleased to share with you the work of a New Hampshire craftswoman today, Melanie of BagsByMelanie. I met Melanie in person when we were both vending our pieces at the Concord Arts Market last October. She uses bright, colorful fabrics in her work and is careful to select high-quality fabrics, favoring Amy Butler and Michael Miller prints.

Here are just a few of Melanie's creations!

Zippered wristlet / clutch

Cosmetic pouch

Key fob
 I love the cheerful, bright fabrics that Melanie uses in her items. Her pieces would make great gifts, don't you think? 

Melanie works out of her home and manages to juggle her sewing obligations with her busy family (three kids!). Her work can also be found in "New To You," Concord, New Hampshire, and she ships her items worldwide. BagsbyMelanie has been open on Etsy since 2006, and her work has been favorably reviewed across the board. Here are just a few of her reviews:

"Got these (clutch purses) for my bridesmaids. They turned out super cute!"
"Super fast shipping! Bag looks nicer in person and is well made. Will purchase from this seller again. "
"I loooove it!! Well made, gorgeous fabrics inside and out; will shop from her again." 
"Ah! These are wonderful! Perfect for gifts for family!!"

Do take a peek at Melanie's shop and peruse more of her carefully and well-made items. They will be sure to put a smile on  your face!
Be well,
