Item

Has a zipper closure and a layer of batting for softness and a layer of interfacing for structure. The inside of the pouch is fully lined in coordinating fabric.

Bio
Carissa started sewing, as most people did, as a kid in home economics. She hated it! She hated following a pattern and hated following directions. She wanted to do it her way, her way was better! What got her into trouble then, has helped her to grow a successful business. She never uses patterns and loves to come up with new designs. She is the mom of two, very active, little boys. On the weekends, she is an intensive care unit nurse. Carissa loves her sewing as it gives her a wonderful outlet for creativitiy. She also thinks every woman and mom should have something that they do just for them and no one else. You can also find her on the web under her name, Carissa Black. She has the privelage of having my bags in specialty shops on the East Coast. She is also a proud member of FAM and the CT Etsy street team!
