Everyday Handmade: Bags

Hello there! Are you ready for this week's installment of Everyday Handmade? You know I am!

The wonderful makers of the Artisans Gallery Team made my searching very easy this week! I went looking for beautiful, handmade, functional, fashionable bags and did you know that the AG Team has a bag for nearly every occasion!? There are so many beautiful bags, that it was hard to choose my favorites! Here are some of the great ones I found:

For great all around off-the-shoulder totes with beautiful fabrics, lots of pockets, and a modern twist, check out Ikabags. I love this apple green and white french messenger bag---not only is it extremely cute and functional, but it's even water resistant---perfect for a day at the beach! {Find it here}



A great purse to carry along two ways, while dreaming of blue skies comes from Star Bags. This here is called the "La Fleur Bag" in sky blue. {find many other great bags by Star Bags here}



For the absolute ultimate in traveling functionality, check out the amazing bag creations of Mims Maine. These bags can be worn as a backpack or off the shoulder! A favorite that I found is this one below made from upcycled Maine sail cloth! {find it in this section of Mims Maine's shop}.




And for a chic bag that will go with almost anything, check out this Auvenier Burlap Bag from Ira Grant (find it here). I love the combination of soft-toned burlap and dark leather.


And when you need to bring along just a little, {or need a pretty bit of organization inside your larger bag} Bagatelles & Co has a sweet collection of Kitty Mini Purses. This one below is called Apple and Rose. {Bagatelles also has a full line of gorgeous purses of all sizes}.




I hope you enjoyed these bags that will get you {and all of your personal items} where you're going in style! Thanks to the wonderful makers!
