Hello and Welcome! My name is Christine and I have been sewing most of my life. My Mother taught me at a very young age how to knit, crochet and sew. After several years of just not having the time to sew I decided to get back into it and I have MISSED it! My Tangerine Tote design was inspired by a favorite purse of mine but it wasn't just what I wanted and I wanted it in many different colors. So I planned and drew out a pattern and loved it! The name Tangerine Tote comes from the fact that ... well Tangerine rhymes with Christine! I am funny like that. I plan on adding several new versions of this tote as well as accessories so please stay tuned!

New Style added!

Hi Everyone!  Yes, it has been a while since I posted something new.  I have been busy sewing and brainstorming for some new designs!  I recently came up with (with inspiration) a new larger sized purse.  I personally LOVE it! 
It measures 14" across the top, 10" across the bottom, 7" high in the center and 4 1/2" deep on the bottom.
This Blue Paisley Purse has a 3 panel pocket on the inside, a snap tab closure and a key hook so you never lose your keys!
Also new is the Pink and Teal Floral Tote
This tote is very lightweight and perfect for a shopping trip in the summer heat.  This tote features the 3 panel pocket on the inside and a key hook.
New pictures of the bright, summery orange and green tote
The new purse and tote will be added to my etsy shop soon along with the floral pins!
I am happy to do custom orders so if you have a color combination you would love to have just drop me a note!
Stay Cool in this summer heat and Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Very cute! I do like my purses wider than taller. Easier to find stuff in them!I didn't see it in your Etsy.

  2. You have been busy. those look great. I like that idea of a key hook. I'm always digging for my keys.

  3. I LOVE my tote!! My favorite part is the magnetic snap. When I hear that little click sound I feel good about life!!!

    Simple pleasures!!

    Your new bags are beautiful!!!!


  4. Cute new design, Christine! All your prints are so fun. :) And I agree, the key hook sounds fabulous.
