Claire Marie Designs

"Handbags are like accessories, only the prints change." - Sarah Rupiper


My name is Claire and I am 30 years old. I studied fashion merchandising and received my bachelors degree with minors in art, graphic design and business in 2009. I am currently a Family and Consumer Science teacher, teaching high school students about what I love; family, friendships, cooking, nutrition, personal growth, setting goals and my favorite sewing!  

Besides teaching ,I enjoy every aspect of creating and sewing together new accessories for you. Whether you are in need of a tote bag for the beach or a cute clutch for a first date. 

 I started my business by making quilts for Christmas presents for my sister and mother 4 years ago. Since then I have expanded my collection to aprons, clutches, totes and purses. I strive to make each product unique and stylish. I pride myself in making one of a kind products that you can carry around forever,(literally "carry around" forever). I take custom orders to cater to all my customer needs. If you are looking for a specific color, theme, or item I will do my best to meet your request. You can send requests through the contact us link on my page or send an email to I hope you enjoy my webpage. Please bare with me during the creation process, my online store is not set up yet. I am working diligently to make it perfect for you, my customers!
