Hello my lovelies.
My name is Paulette and I live with my partner Simon in the beautiful Byron Bay hinterland of Northern Rivers area of NSW, Australia.
I’ve been a sewist ever since I left school, when I went to work for a clothing manufacturer back in the late 70’s. There I learned every aspect of creating garments that served me well in my dressmaking years. Since then I’ve gone on to many other areas of sewing including quilting, where I’ve created beautiful bed and wall quilts for family and friends. I’ve explored a lot of different crafts but my love has always been fabrics. I love the endless combinations of colours and patterns and textures. Yummy!
During my exploration I have attended many craft and quilting shows where I stumbled upon machine embroidery and that opened up a whole new world.
Since developing my skills as a bag maker, I love to combine this passion together with embroidery and my love of fabrics using our beautiful Vegan Cork Leathers to create a quality piece that will reflect your personality perfectly.
Choose from one of our ready made bags or simply choose a style that you love, add an emboirdery, and let us know what colours and fabrics you would like, then together we will create the perfect bag just for you.
HEAVEN IN A HANDBAG was conceived from my desire to continually awaken the soul and to evolve and grow.
Combined with my love of sewing and embroidery I found the perfect medium to express this in handbags. There are so many beautiful fabrics and embroidery designs that the possibilities are endless.
I hope you enjoy following my journey into this world as I share my creations with you, as well as my BLOG which I try to share inspirational stories, fashion industry tips and updates as well as my journey into self discovery and growth.
