I love all textiles, colours, textures, tweeds and the colours of land and sky. I want to make you something so beautiful that you will say “Wow” and treasure it for years.

About Me

I saw a world that wanted to use less plastic so I made a multi-use bag to use instead for office shoes, laptop and shopping. I am passionate about Made in Britain and found heritage textiles to work with.

I sew with my mothers sewing machine which is about 100 years old and use my mothers scissors to cut out. The smell of fabric and the whirr of the machine I learnt at my mothers knee as she sewed.

My range has expanded to smaller items so customers can experience my designs and work.

All Day Bags

Based in Cumbria, All Day Bags was started when I saw the need to create beautiful and long lasting alternatives to the plastic carrier bag.

My unique, handmade bags are inspired by the rugged landscape of the Lake District and rolling hills of the Scottish Borders.  Using good quality, locally produced fabrics, I make long lasting, beautiful and unique bags that can be used for shopping, laptop bags or handbags.  They make great gifts too!
