I started my hobby business making heirloom teddy bears out of fur coats. That's how my husband came up with the name 'Bearly Making It'. I don't make bears any-more, but kept my business name...even though a lot of people refer to me as The Bag Lady. Over 15 years ago, a local fabric store offered classes to make tote bags...I was hooked! Since then, my love of purses, fabric and all things nice led me to design unique tote bags with function and style.
