Is Your Mom a Bag Lady?

It’s shameless commerce Tuesday, and this week I’m sharing more Mother’s Day gift ideas from my Etsy shop, Pasque Flower Creations:  

This week’s featured items are designed for “bag” ladies.  No, not the street people bag ladies who are down on their luck or suffering from mental illness with no access to treatment.   I mean the bag ladies who like fun and functional bags, totes, and zip pouches.  In my experience, moms and grandmas can never have too many bags, because we always need to be prepared.   We need a place to stow all those little things like phones, wallets, planners, an extra diaper, kid-friendly snacks, beach gear, sunglasses, sunscreen, makeup, etc.  You name it, we stow it, usually in a bag. 

Now I’m not obsessive about collecting bags the way Imelda Marcos was obsessive about collecting shoes, or in the way that I am obsessive about collecting fabric.   I’m just sayin’… bags are really handy—and one is not enough!

So, for any of the “bag ladies” on your Mother’s Day list, I offer a variety of bag, totes, and wallets:  tiny little zip wallets, makeup bags, retro-inspired clutches, and the big mama Gemini bags that hold a ton of stuff for outings to the beach, the park, the zoo, or the gym.  The Gemini bag is also a perfect stow away bag when traveling.  Pack it in a suitcase to fill with souvenirs, or use it as a carryon bag.  To view these bags, check out the scrolling widget at the top of this page, or visit the Bags, Totes & Wallets section of my Etsy shop:  Custom orders welcome.

And, a reminder:  10% of my Etsy sales proceeds for the month of April will be donated to Voices of Hope, a shelter that keeps women and children off the streets when forced out of their home due to domestic violence.  

Sewing ….it’s my bag.
