The name littlebjanet comes from a purse "business" I had with my daughter. My name "little" and her name Brenda made the business name little b. We started sewing purses about 7 years ago after my son Tim graduated from high school. He said I needed something to fill the void his absence would make! I turned his bedroom into my sewing room.

My daughter and I visited my mother every August, and she would have a project for us. That year Mom shared a tote bag pattern she found. Brenda and I decided to turn them into handbags and have made hundreds since then. Over the years, Brenda has more children and less time, so it became my business. I was really very busy for a while. The knee replacements, economy, and my lack of "sales abilities" eventually stopped the purse parties. Now it's mostly orders from someone who previously bought one. This is the tote bag I just made for a bridal shower gift. It uses the bride's colors and will be filled with special goodies for the bride to use on her wedding day.
