This is our most popular reusable grocery bag pattern. It’s prettier, safer, and sturdier than the bags you often find in stores. Use a substantial substrate, like a canvas, cotton duck or even an outdoor fabric, which was our choice.

This Ribbon Wallet is so beautiful, you'll want to carry it by itself – not hide it away in a handbag. We've used the technique of assembling a number of ribbons side-by-side to create our own "ribbon fabric." The ribbons used in our sample are some of the breathtaking Jacquard ribbons for which Renaissance Ribbons is famous.
These terrific totes are as much of a present as the gifts they can carry inside.

Purple combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red, and is often associated with royalty, luxury, and power.

Our designer barrel tote, with its detachable strap, uses beautiful Jacquard ribbons from Renaissance Ribbons to their best advantage: as focal point embellishments against a solid base fabric. They add just the right dash of drama. But don’t go overboard - too many ribbons is like too much whipped cream... sounds like a good idea
This large weekender tote combines some of our favorite fabric types: natural, nubby twill, soft faux suede, and happy gingham for a pop of color and pattern. It also has the perfect soft feel, which makes it extremely packable. Not so soft and slouchy that it puddles on the floor, but also not so stiff

String style backpacks are in high demand right now for back-to-school, but they're really a year-round, on-the-go mainstay. They're compact and lightweight but can still hold plenty.

Vibrant fabric accents look great against the bright color of the mesh and the gleaming nickel hardware. The mesh body lets sand and dirt sift out while at the same time allowing air to flow in and help dry out suits and towels.

When packing for a short trip or weekend getaway, it can be hard enough to choose what to bring. Why add the stress of trying to figure out what to put all those choices into? Rolling luggage is overkill. Your standard tote is not big enough, and its open top is a recipe for disaster.
Summer is out-and-about time. Time for traveling near and far. Time for a tote that can stand up to all the adventures. Our Super Study Summer Tote is ready to roll. We love working with the Dritz® Double Cap Rivets to add strength to a bag’s straps and other stress points. They are easy to

We want to make sure we're bringing you the kind of high-end features that take handmade to the next level – so your finished

The lanyard snaps onto a pacifier on one end and clips onto baby’s clothing, stroller or swing on the other. There’s also a pouch to holds two more binkies (on their lanyards) so there’s always one handy.

This project features not one, not two, but three cute zippered pouch styles to hold life’s little necessities. We chose three specialty Dritz Labels to customize each pouch, and offer a free set of printable Mother’s Day floral gift tags as a finishing touch.

The panels and pockets of our device case are layered with foam to create a soft yet sturdy carrier. This folio is part of our Monogrammed Travel Trio (links are included below for

We used barkcloth in bold tropical prints for our dramatic totes, but other mid-to-heavyweight substrates would work too. The generous size makes it perfect as a market shopper, everyday carryall or even a diaper bag alternative.

They’re something useful for yourself or great as a gift; our key fobs use just tiny bits of fabric and notions, and they’re fast and fun. In fact they were so fun, we did 5 samples, adding piping, stitching, embroidery, and ribbon.

The seventies hippie style didn't go away, it just came back as "boho." Rich color, mixed-media, wonderful textures, and a loose, unstructured feel are hallmarks of "bohemian fashion." Today's little shoulder bags fit right in. The focal point is the stack of five gorgeous ribbons from Renaissance Ribbons. They provide the artistry and beautifully divide

Special accents are the perfect touch for a professional bag finish. This terrific tote has rivets securing the straps, jean buttons on the side pockets, cool metal grommets, western style pocket flaps, and twin needle topstitching.
