Why shoulder bags?

Hi, I'm Joan Marie Verba and I sew the shoulder bags you see on the page. I started using these because I found that whenever I purchased a purse, it would not be long before the purse became stained or dirty, or something spilled on it. Then I'd either have to try to clean it, or I'd have to throw it away. After throwing away a lot of purses, I decided that I needed a purse that I could simply wash when either the inside or outside was dirty. That's when I started using these, which are machine washable. They're durable, roomy, comfortable to wear, and have a lot of pockets. I believe you'll find them as useful as I have.
