Sew Yours was born out of my love for handbags and sewing. My name is Melissa, and I reside in Florida. My first big purchase was when I was twelve, a sewing machine with my birthday money. I began sewing handbags fifteen years ago. In the last ten years, I’ve been designing bag patterns for myself. Recently I decided it was time to share them with you!

Sew Yours launched in August of 2021 and has been a huge success. So much so that it has allowed me to retire from my corporate job and focus solely on pattern design.

All my PDF patterns include step-by-step full-color photographs of every step as well as a video tutorial. Sewing bags with my patterns are easy since you can sew along with me.
