I opened LaCartera Designs shop to offer creative and unique handmade handbags and started a "Handmade Handbag Junkie" following in 2013. I love to find unique ways to mix style designs with textiles found around the globe! Now I'm updating my shop to include PDF Patterns to accommodate all sewing levels with easy to follow tutorials and illustrations to recreate my designs for yourself. Handbag kits are coming soon... So stay tuned there's more to come LaCartera!
