Welcome to LolaUniqueCreations where you can view my latest sewing creations made in Broome, Western Australia. Broome is in Yawuru Country. Gurdan is the Yawuru word for bag or bucket.

A couple of years ago I made myself a small shoulder bag and some friends wanted a bag too.
So now, thanks to suggestions and requests I have fun making bags with different combinations of zips and pockets. I also like experimenting with embroidery details.
The original shoulder bags were named after people who inspired me to sew them!
The shoulder bags I make now have a zip pocket on the outside, so mobiles and keys can be safely stored and are easy to find. The other 'open' pockets are on the inside of the bags.
'Kristy Carrier' 50 cm - two straps and outside zip pocket, with or without open-ended zip
'Kaylene' 40cm - stand up bag with outside zip pocket, 5 inside pockets, single adjustable strap
'Krista-Jane' 35cm zip, 'Joycelyn' 30cm zip, stand up bags with outside zip pocket, 5 inside pockets, single strap (approx 100cm long)
'Ann' Essentials 20cm zip with front 15cm zip pocket, single adjustable strap for across the body.
Coin purse 12-18 cm zip, Handy Pouches/Pencil Cases 20-35cm zips

All bags are cotton and fully lined - so they can be washed - soak and gentle machine or hand wash, warm/hot iron.
I buy most of my materials locally, from Streeters Drapery in Broome and use authentic Aboriginal designs by artists from MS Textiles http://www.mstexaustralia.com.

Thanks for visiting, hope to hear from you soon, Lola Nanyjili, the happy sewer.

Drawstring bag and backpack

A new creation in Lola bags for 2016 - the drawstring bag and backpack.  
These bags are perfect for everyday use, especially if you ride a bike or just like to shop, work or play hands- free. They are also great to take on holiday as they fold up quite small when not in use.
They are 35cm wide and 40 cm tall. All have an outside zip pocket on one side of the bag. Price is $30 each

Wild bush flowers + brown
Wild bush honey + cerise SOLD
Bush sultana + denim
Women's business + burgundy

My friend easily carries her water bottle and daily essentials in the main part of her bag and keys and phone are in the outside zip pocket.
