Handcrafted Bags Created by Area Artist Bonnie Hagen

Bonnie Hagen is an artist at En Liten Svensk Shoppe with a flair for color, design and detail

Bonnie’s Story:

“I grew up admiring my godmother who could sew anything without a pattern!  She inspired me at an early age to use my imagination and create beautiful things to wear as well as different accessories.

When I retired, I decided I needed something to keep me busy and started creating purses, weekend bags, traveling bags and water bottle bags.  I have approximately 16 different varieties of bags that I love to make.  My greatest pleasure is picking out the fabric and designing a special bag with that print or design in mind.  If I’m having a bad day, a quick trip to the fabric shop to just admire and feel the fabric sets me right back into feeling good about the day. “
