Carol's Classic Handbags Are Now Available

We just got  Carol's Classic Handbags in and we are really excited!

I don't know if you are aware of who Carol is but she has been crafting for many years and has now decided to follow her dream of painting.  She has an entire line of purse patterns called Carol's Carry-Alls, which we carry on our purse pattern site.  The first pattern she designed is her most  popular and is called The Classic.
Carol decided to make up this bag and sell it to those who don't have the time or the inclination to sew their own handbag and very kindly offered to let us carry this handcrafted bag on Henrietta's Handbags.

Each bag is individually handmade in durable upholstery fabric.  Features of this handbag include:
  • Seven organizational pockets, including 2 outside the bag for easy access
  • Two comfortable shoulder handles
  • Fully lined in a matching fabric
  • Easy to open and see everything inside
  • Convenient size measuring 11" high x 12" wide x 2 and 1/2" deep

We currently have 10 different fabrics - choose the colors you like best!

Crossbody Bags with Applique Peacock and Bird by Karma

We have gotten in some very lovely cross body fabric bags at Henrietta's Handbags this week!  One bag design has an applique peacock in shades of purple, blue, and green and the other design is in shades of maroon, green, and pink with a bird applique on the front of the bag.

These bags are very "boho" and are designed by Karma, a company that helps support worthwhile projects, including projects such  as teachers in Cambodia and food for school children in the USA.

Each bag also has an inspirational message embroidered inside and they both have secure top zippers.
