From Rags To Bags

Hello! I'm Alison and I am the owner, designer and maker at From Rags To Bags. I have always had a passion for sewing and making but the idea for the business really only started at the end of 2005 when I was recovering from hand surgery. It was quite a few months before I could actually make anything, so the first thing I did was order business cards, to make the idea a reality. I started making fabric handbags but quickly moved onto lavender bags and peg bags. Next came doorstops and cushions. Finally, a couple of years ago, I added laundry bags and toy bags. I can't quite believe how successful the business has been but with over 700 doorstops sold worldwide, I think it is doing pretty well.
