Link to Bags, Purses and Handbags

“Don’t be part of the crowd. Be your own person, with your own unique style and personality.”

I make a variety of handbags, purses and bags from small day bags, essentials pouches, satchels, totes, book bags, yoga mat bags and roomy “everything but the kitchen sink” bags. Each one is individually created and features coordinating fabrics and handy pockets for cellphone, pen, notepad and other essentials. They all feature a strap with a key clip, so you can unlock your door without having to hunt for your keys every time you need them. I put as much thought and care into the interiors as I do the exteriors and it is a joy to be able to open a bag that is functional, organized and beautiful!

Be unique. Have a bag custom made.

The majority of my work is for custom orders and I guarantee that there will never be a duplicate of your unique bag. I work with each customer to create a one of a kind bag that reflects his or her style and personality, whilst retaining the practicality that is at the heart of what I do. Each Pip ‘n’ Milly Original is individually handmade in my home studio in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island.

Prices for bags vary, depending on style, materials, hardware and customization requested. Please contact me if you would like to discuss a particular project, but here is a guideline (all prices are in Canadian dollars):

Zippered essentials pouch $18

The essentials pouch is angled like several of my designs, has a 7″ zipper and is incredibly handy for all the little ‘essentials’ we all carry. Save the frustration of losing them in the bottom of your bag and keep them all in an essentials pouch. Mine carries a first aid kit, sewing kit, mini screwdriver, tape measure, tweezers, lipstick, lip balm, hand sanitizer and more!

Locker / beach / mall hopper bag $65

This bag was designed to fit into the lockers at the local Aquatic Centre, but works really well as a beach bag or shopping bag. Features pleated pockets on either end, two handles and ample room for a family outing.

Messenger bag $105

The messenger bag is an ever-popular style and  my particular design features an adjustable strap, parachute clip closure under the flap, pockets inside and out, a key clip, magazine pocket and fabulous fabric combinations. There are many possibilities for customization.

Basic Sling bag $85

The basic sling bag has a smooth curved shape, small exterior pocket (zip or patch pocket), interior pockets, key clip, magnetic closure and comfortable strap.

Gussetted sling bag $105

Similar in style and features to the basic sling bag, this bag has a wide gusset, which substantially increases the capacity of the bag and changes the side profile.

Trapezium bag $125

Trapezium bag

The trapezium bag is a very practical, multipurpose bag with two shoulder straps, magnetic flap closure, front pocket, interior pockets, key clip and removable hard base. The ‘small’ version makes a great, roomy handbag, whilst larger versions have been used for knitting, projects, diapers, picnics and more.
