Seller Profile – Barmadebags

Barbara Rose

Etsy shop name

Please describe your product range.
Handbags, clutch bags, tote bags, personalised bags: all sorts of bags made from as much upcycled fabric as possible and featuring either patchwork or appliqued designs.

I started an Etsy shop because…
When I retired from teaching, I wanted to do something creative and found that designing and making bags was fun. I needed a market for them so turned to Etsy.

I feel inspired by…
The flowers in my garden and the wonderful off-cuts of fabric that my sister passes on to me.

When I’m working on Etsy, I like to listen to…
The birds singing in the garden.

What will you have for sale at Etsy Made Local?
I will be selling a variety of individually designed bags made from upcycled fabric: handbags, clutches, totes and small novelty bags for kids. There will also be some smaller bag-related items such as key rings and glasses cases.
