About Carrie

I like to sew bags.  I sew mostly chalk bags have created a gift bag for wine, yoga mat bag and more.  I started this website to share what I’ve made, and to share my processes and share ideas.

I got started wtih the idea to make chalk bags years ago when a friend made one for me.  She made several for people in my group of climbing friends.  I was intrigued. When she moved away, I got to thinking that maybe I could make them and I wouldn’t have to worry about stepping on someone else’ turf.

I found that I could not start with a simple bag.  If I was going to do this, I was going to take it to a whole new level.  And that I did. My first bag was a logo for the company I worked for at the time.  The second was for myself, made from recycled pleather pants.  I quickly learned that this was something I could do and could do well.

After that I started to experiment more with different materials, shapes, designs etc.  I constantly search to make my product better and with that process have found better materials and designs.  I continue to try new and inventive things and have a lot of fun doing so.
