It was tough choosing a favorite but I finally decided on this bag called Charm.
Melanie talked with me a little about herself and her art:
"My name is Melanie and I am a stay at home mom of three children, two boys (11 and 3) and a girl (1 1/2). I started my stay at home business of making bags and accessories three years ago this August.I've put together a sampling of items by Bags by Melanie to create this Spotlight on ByHand.me. Please feel free to go to this Spotlight to see the whole selection and leave a comment.
"I make and design my own patterns, because of this each bag is slightly different from the one before it. I let the fabric tell me what it wants to be. Just because I have a piece of fabric doesn't necessarily mean that it belongs made into a tote bag. My brain is always full of ideas, some good some not so good, but they are always floating around. I only make one this at a time to make sure I am giving each piece the attention it deserves."
